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.

    Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

    I got 2 the first year to see if I would like them and to see how they would work. They were wonderful! I got big beautiful plants on my porch railing just like I have always wanted. I especially loved the fact that I didn't have to water them everyday. I could go away for the weekend and not worry that my plants were going to be wilted when I got home.

          Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

          At first I was looking for a water level indicator to know how much water was in the reservoir. However I did not see one. I'm hoping by watering liberally will keep the reservoir full.

          I do like everything else about the railing planters.

            Have put it near my humming bird feeders and planted with red flowers. The birds are attracted to it and then visit my feeders. A win-win situation for me. I like how it seats firmly on my deck railings.

                    I have two of these and I used them on my wrought iron railing. It's only about 1 inch wide but they worked fine. I had these in a shaded area and only had to water them maybe once a week during the hottest month. Otherwise they could go for 10 days without being refilled.
