  • 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.

You won't know whether the planter is filled until the overflow drips from the bottom unto the deck.

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

I love these deck rail planters so much that I purchased two more of them. It is the end of July and my wave petunias are full and beautiful. Usually by this time they're stringy and dried up. I highly recommend these!

Disappointed

By Missy my girl

from Greenville, SC

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

I ordered 2 of these planters which fit down perfectly on my deck railing. However, even though they were filled with potting soil and water, they both blew off with a wind landing upside down and destroying the flowers. It happened twice, so wasn't just a fluck happening. So now cannot use them as planned. I ordered 2 more and now returning them since I don't need destroying anymore flowers. I called the company,however, they would not pay for any of the return shipping so not sure I will be dealing with this company in the future.

Perfect

Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

I was looking for a planter to help provide privacy for a new outdoor shower. These fit the bill perfectly, plus add the beauty of flowers and trailing vines as a bonus. They are quite sturdy and well made.

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.
