      So pretty they were stolen!

      Pros

      • BEAUTIFUL
      • Great Water Savers
      • Perfect On Wrought Iron
      • Railings

      Cons

        Best Uses

          I've just ordered a second set (4) of these. The first ones looked so beautiful, someone stole them off my front porch! I've drilled holes in the second set and am wiring them to the porch railings. Might not stop a burglar, but will at least slow them down.

          • Works as described

          Cons

            Best Uses

              This product has a high gloss finish, which did not fit in with my more rustic environment, but I have made it work.

              Pros

              Cons

              • Railing Size Too Small

              Best Uses

              • Small spaces

              I hope the new one I opted for is large enough to fit on my railing; the space for the actual planter was perfect, but the portion that hangs on the railing was too small; it was my fault, I should have checked that piece out more carefully.

                  Considered purchasing the planter for a while but glad that I did as now we can display flowers closer to the front door. Our planter is black to match our wrought-iron railing...it is perefct and neighbors have already been asking where we found it!

                  Best Uses

                  • Iron Railing Planters

                  I have two, in black and have hung them on the entrance railing on the east side of our home. We have planted several sun loving moss roses in each.
                  We have received many compliments on these planters from all of our visitors, who also ask where we bought them. They do need a leveling block placed behind each one, so the self watering features will work properly.

                  • Bright colors
                  • Fit Narrow Railings
                  • No tools needed
                  • So Easy Just Hang Them

                  Cons

                    Best Uses

                    • Herbs Or Flowers

                    It is very hard or impossible to find a planter box for narrow railings. These are the first I've seen, and the best thing is they just set over the railing no tools needed for installing them.

                    • Unsure About Water Gauge

                    Best Uses

                    • Top Floor Landing

                    Our top floor apartment has a concrete fire escape with elegant wrought iron railings and a western exposure. These handsome brick red windowboxes are filled with sun-loving annuals and vines and look terrific. I water every day - haven't yet tried to 'gauge' the water gauges - but won't worry if they work or not (other reviews suggest they don't!). A fine product - would buy more if I had the space.
