This Planter Tells You When it Needs Water

  • Grow flowers, vegetables and herbs on your deck or patio
  • Self-watering planter has an indicator to tell you when the reservoir needs refilling
  • Long-lasting, UV-stabilized polypropylene

All of our self-watering planters protect against drought, but this one does more — it has a water-level indicator that tells you when to refill the reservoir, and a convenient funnel that lets you water from the top. Made of UV-stabilized polypropylene, these planters resist cracking, chipping and fading, and the sides are braced to prevent bowing. In Terra Cotta, Stone or Green.

  • Made of UV-stabilized polypropylene
  • 3-quart reservoir and holds 22 quarts of container mix
  • 9-1/2" wide by 8-1/2" high

      It's simple....it works

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            I don't have room for a garden, so I grow in containers. These self watering are the best. If I am out of town for a couple of days I don't worry if my vegetables are getting water. A big plus is the portability and the fact you can move them as the sun changes. Heavy construction but not too heavy to move. This will last many planting seasons. Thank you Gardeners for a quality product.

                      lettuce and one pepper plant we will see how they do. self watering is nice. the tube you put in for checking water level is in the way of planting in the middle of the box. and when plants grow it will cover it weird place. cheaply made and wont last long . I have another that is sturdier.

                      I got this to catch the drips from a window box so as not to waste a single drop of water in dry old california. It fit under just right. I have had these before at my previous house in a small deck space and they lasted very well.

                            Except for having to drill drain holes, this product was perfect. And that's not enough to knock it down.

                              Living in Arizona, watering is critical for a plant to survive. These self-watering troughs are great! They can go about a week before getting watered, so if I go on vacation and the neighbor forgets to water, the plants still have water to get them through until I get home. I will definately order more in the fall!

                                I didn't expect to need to water this planter every day, but it is July and the hottest season, so perhaps that will be the case in other seasons. I suggest that the instructions include diagrams.

In other words, thrillers, fillers and spillers.
