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

              • Is Self Watering

              Cons

              • Not worth the price

              Best Uses

              • First X I Use It
              • Have Pepper Lettuce In

              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.

                      Best Uses

                      • Patio Garden

                      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!

                        • Patio Garden

                        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.

                        Cons

                          Best Uses

                            These planters are sturdy, durable, maintain their coloration and the best buy for the price. I ordered several at least 6 years ago and they're still going strong. ...ordered six more this year and am about to order more. They can be used anywhere and for just about anything. I've not only planted directly into them, but placed old, worn cocoa matted window boxes in them. Plants don't dry out nearly as quickly. Herbs love them too. A GREAT BUY!

                            I like the long size for planting two rows of leaf lettuce. The seeds have sprouted and I'm thinking they will produce a good harvest for fresh salads all summer.
