Self-watering to reduce watering chores and keep plants happy
Bold colors and a high-gloss finish make these 14" pots really stand out. The built-in casters let you roll them easily — to a sunny spot on the deck, out of the way for a party. They’re self-watering, too, to reduce watering chores and provide plants with a consistent supply of moisture.
This self-watering planter is amazing! First, it is made of sturdy plastic, and after 2 months in the hot afternoon sun, the color (red) has not faded at all. The reservoir is easy to refill, and the self-watering feature has kept the soil uniformly moist through weeks of 90+ heat. I'm a beginner gardener, and probably planted more plants in each planter than I should have, expecting a few might not make it. Instead, the flowers are spilling out of the planter, growing larger and more colorful than I could have expected.
The only two things that people may not like about these pots are: 1. the wheels do not swivel, so it could be hard to shift the pot sideways (otherwise it moves easily enough - I'm able to lift it without a problem), and 2. it's hard to see how full the reservoir is while you're refilling it. I have a tendency to overfill it, and the water leaks out the hole. Not a big deal for me, but probably means this pot is best outdoors.
Overall, outstanding performance. I think I might buy a few more next year!
