Additional Information

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
  • We recommend two 20-quart bags of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix; each of these planters holds 22 quarts

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.

    Comments about : 31" Self-Watering Trough Planter:

    Nice looking planter, the self watering feature seems to work well. I have it outside on my patio, and this required drilling some holes which is not a big deal except the instructions for doing so were absolutely terrible.

      Bought 5 of these for my outside deck and planted sweet potato vines in them. They're perfect. If you use them outside, you have to drill drainage holes, but it's pretty easy to do that.

        Comments about : 31" Self-Watering Trough Planter:

        We have 12 of these on a stepped rack to hold strawberries off the ground. They are lightweight enough to lift them even after filled with soil. They seem to be sturdy and the self-watering feature is a nice safeguard if the drip doesn't work for some reason. The crosspiece to prevent them from bulging when full is terrific. They did not get five stars because two of the twelve crosspieces have already broken.

          Comments about : 31" Self-Watering Trough Planter:

          I'm using this to grow vegetables from seed on my patio. I don't own a drill, and was disappointed to find out upon receiving it that I needed to drill holes in the bottom to use it outdoors. The holding capacity leaves something to be desired - I find that I have to refill it nearly every day, and the indictor bobber only really floats immediately after filling it. Functionally, it seems to be working well with this frequency of filling - the soil is moist and some of my seeds have started to grow - but it is not as user-friendly and time saving as I'd hoped.

            Needs better instructions to assemble

            By Francoise

            from Liberty hill Texas

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about : 31" Self-Watering Trough Planter:

            The instructions to assemble are very vague. A drawing would be more helpful. I had to write to customer's service to have more precise instructions. Customer's service was very diligent. I had an answer within 24 hours and I could finish the job.
