    Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

    To be honest, I ordered the wrong size for the original pots but have used them elsewhere. The video that Gardeners Supply really helps explain how to install them and my smaller indoor plants now have the perfect watering system.

    They were not as strong as I had imagined for the original pots ... perhaps the larger ones are sturdier.

      I have used Gardener's resivoirs for years as a means of keeping porch & deck plant moist and have found they work extremely well. An added plus is that they reduce the amount of potting soil required to fill large pots.

        Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

        I have antique sap buckets I use for plants and hang on my trees. Watering them has always been difficult and I have to reach up above my head with the hose and the water always trickles down my arm. Also they tend to dry out fairly quickly, so I have to be on top of the watering. I am very anxious to use these self watering conversion kits in my buckets

              Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

              I have used the Gardener's Supply self watering inserts (as well as the pots they used to have years ago) for 5+ years. The inserts are so easy to make any pot into a self watering one, and on really hot days, I went from having to water outdoor plants daily, to only watering every 3 days. The water is stored in the bottom of the pot and the plants roots use the water when it needs it. I love these!!!

                I have used these from Gardener's Supply for years and there isn't a better way to convert regular pots to self-watering. They last for years, great for outside and inside plants, and indispensable for beautiful, healthy plants.
