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

good for the price

By lckain

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Convenient
  • Good Size For Herbs
  • Sturdy enough

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Herbs
    • Shallow-root Annuals

    I use this to grow herbs on our deck. I like the self-watering feature because we're often away from home for days at a time. A note of caution, though: If you get lots of rain, remember that this planter has no drain holes. We have had a very wet June and I've had to tip the planter to drain off the "lake". The self-watering feature will be a blessing for those dry Maryland August days, though.

          Still confused

              Best Uses

                We bought four of the containers with water indicators. We had a problem with the first two because we had to drill holes in them and then did not realize the placement of the piece of material in the bottom and had one piece over the raised piece and one piece under. We called and were told this was okay. With the next two we placed the material the way we were told with both ends under the raised piece. I have not seen the indicators work on any of the four containers yet. You can tell when to water even without the indicators, but they were fairly expensive regular planters. I did get a $20 credit, but will hesitate to use it since I still have to pay shipping and you cannot get much for $20. I've bought a lot from Gardener's Supply but think I will look elsewhere next time. They did answer their help line quickly when we called to find out about the placement of the piece of material.

                                My herbs and lettuces are doing very well on my deck which is the only sunny spot. I didn't give 5 stars because the directions were very poor. I didn't know which "pillars" to punch holes in and I still don't know when the reservoir needs refilling. It has been raining a lot lately so I haven't worried about it yet.

                                      This product is very durable and convenient to use because of the self-watering feature.

                                        • Beautiful, bountiful planters depend on good soil, fertilizer and careful watering. But to take your planters from standard to sensational, you need the right plants. Start with this simple rule: Combine plants with three different habits. In other words, thrillers, fillers and spillers.
                                        • To create beautiful flowering planters, it helps to pick the right plants.
