Additional Information

Exclusive | Self-Watering Railing Planter Installs in Seconds

  • Convenient self-watering railing planter is simple to install
  • Straddles two sizes of rails — no brackets needed
  • Just fill the reservoir and plants get the water they need, when they need it
  • We recommend one 20-quart bag of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix; each of these planters holds 20 quarts

Now it’s easier than ever to have lush, colorful plants along a deck railing. This cleverly designed planter securely straddles rails made from both 4" and 6" milled lumber (actual width 3-1/2" and 5-1/2") — no mounting hardware needed. Best of all, it’s self-watering; simply fill the reservoir and plants receive water as they need it.

Handy, and fits well!

By Cissa

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

I love the way these fit on our porch rails so securely! And yet, they can be moved easily.

We're just getting started in cultivating in them, but it's very promising. We have some in which we plan to plant strawberries, and others for herbs.

I do love the self-watering aspect! So far this has not been a hot summer here, but we often have such and the plants in self-watering containers do a lot better than conventional ones.

Ingenious

By jill

from Aspen CO

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

The self-watering railing planter is an Ingenious design both for the water troth with the overflow tube and for the way it will fit on 2 different sized railings. It is difficult to find a planter that will work for a 5" wide railing.

Flower power

By Spike

from MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

Nice color and sturdy. (tan) Don't like the fact that you have to drill holes in the box for excess/overflow of water. Looks a litle tacky. The product should already have this feature done by company. It does fit my railing nicely with no chance of falling off.

These are great for my shady deck rails!

By J. C.

from Southern Nebraska

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

I am not sure how these would fare in the hot sun and wind on the south side of my Nebraska house, but on the rail of my shady back deck they are working great! Much less watering than my other pots. Used the recommended potting soil and the plants are thriving. Very secure on railing. I am very happy with these!

Taking the question out of watering flowers

By Valvebone

from Warwick, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

Concept outstanding, but addition of a filler pipe and a visible water gauge would make them perfect. I can't handle a gauge, but certainly putting a filler tube for each side in place.
