      These planters are generous in size and attractive on the deck railings. I only ordered 2 initially but after they arrived, I ordered 6 more.

        This planter fits securely on the railling and is deep enough to provide adequate dirt around the roots of the plants.

          I am very happy with this planter. Fits perfectly on my rail. I've only had it a little while so can't attest to its durability - but so far so good!

              These railing planters were a perfect fit for my condo deck -- Now residing in a complex where I no longer have an outdoor garden... I just transported my garden from a yard to the deck!
              They look classy and hold an adequate number of plants to add just the right amount of color.

                fits my railing well and looks nice. Will be getting another one. I have 5 herb plants and should have only planted 3 because they grow, but it works.

                      I bought two and liked them so much I purchased another. The planters fit very well on my deck rail, hold more soil and plants than I imagined. The planters drain well, but still retain enough moisture so the plants don't dry out - even in 100 degree Texas summer!

                          My neighborhood is full of rabbits and deer, so I decided to do my kitchen gardening in pots on my deck where the critters won't bother the plants. I bought both a 24" and a 30" planter in red. Note: the 30" planter is 6" deep and can handle larger veggies. The 24" planter is only ~4" deep, so I'm using it for herbs and lettuce. Both planters have been sitting in beaming south sun since May and have not faded yet. I used a heat gun to remove the stickers. My old 2x6 railings are cracked and expanded, so the planter has to sit a little crooked to fit, but it still didn't move a millimeter in the highest wind. Even filled with soil, it's still light enough to lift off the railing if you need to move it.

                          I drilled some larger holes in the bottom for better drainage, but the planter could be converted to self-water by plugging the holes and dumping plastic pieces in the bottom.

                          Overall, they look and work great! This fall I'm going to buy another 30" planter so I can grow more beans in the spring.
