      There are two lengths of these planters. Do not waste your money on the shorter one as it is just not deep enough to grow much of anything. Unless you want to water it continually. The larger ones are deep enough though and a good product for the wider railings. BUY THE DEEPER ONE.

        Comments about : 24" 2 x 6 Railing Planter:

        We are not allowed to have 'window boxes' hanging from our veranda railings. These saddle planters are perfect as they straddle the railings AND because the water drains from each side; the railing are actually protected from the water by the planters.

        I have 3 planters and grow many vegetables and some ornamental flowers 'for color' at the same time. My neighbors love to watch me create my veranda garden each year!

              We have downsized from a large property. these planters are great for keeping herbs handy close to the kitchen and for providing a colorful screen on a deck. they fit snug and secure and do not damage the wood below.

                this planter is the best I have ever had. It adjusts to different fence sizes and ours was very narrow. Once adjusted it stays on the fence and doesn't loosen up. It is very sturdy and not at all heavy. Quite nice looking hanging on the fence with my flowers.

                      They look great on my railings, fit just right making them secure in all types of weather. Easy to move if needed as we did for a hail storm. My only hesitation about them is that they are a bit shallow and need to be consistent in watering them or my plants dry out quickly.
                      They look fabulous and I get a lot of compliments on my flower pots.

                            This planter fits the 1x6 railing like a glove. I bought three last month, and have them on our deck railing filled with yellow and purple wave petunias. I used pea gravel in the "trenches" to aid in drainage. It's too soon to tell how well the planters will perform all summer in full sun, but they look fantastic right now. I look forward to bright colors in a new location.
