Pros

  • Attractive

  • Easy to use

Cons

  • none

Best Uses

  • Flowers

I ordered 5 of these planters to put across my porch railing. They look great and were so easy to set up since they just sit on the railing (no mounting hardware required). I only have to water them 1 or 2 times per week, which is another plus!

not really self watering

By Barbie

Verified Buyer

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        I bought two of them to sit on my back porch railing and planted spinach, lettuce, and carrots. Maybe the fact that the spinach and lettuce didn't have deep
        roots was part of the problem but I had to water quite frequently and the top soil was constantly dry. I have two self watering window boxes with reservoirs that have to be filled from the hose and they will last for two weeks before needing more water. Not these ones for the railing. They have also tipped over twice , not sure whether a squirrel was to blame, but there is no provision for fastening them tightly to the railing. The concept is great but in reality they are just another pot that needs to be checked and watered frequently.

                  Pros

                  • Keeps Flowers Watered
                  • Plenty of room

                  Cons

                  • Needs Wood Railing
                  • Very Heavy

                  Best Uses

                  • Railings

                  The catalog picture shows it on a white vinyl railing that is curved on the top. This is unstable & doesn't work. It's also very heavy when filled. We had to cut part of the top railing off and add a piece similar to a 2X4. We also added a block under the bottom railing for added support.
                  Now that it's securely installed, I'm enjoying the beautiful flowers and the ease of tending them at railing height.

                  Best Uses

                    We've been having lots of rain so don't know how the built in watering is working.

                    Because the container is larger than the fence rail my husband had to improvise to make it stay upright.

                    Looks nice.

                        We have a full sun deck in zone 7a and could never keep seasonal pots watered enough. These railing planters have solved the problem and we now enjoy beautful seasonal color on the deck! We also used the recommended potting soil.

                          This railing planter is advertised as fitting a 4" railing. My railing is 3.75", but the planter would not fit on it. The opening is not large enough.

                                This planter sits our our 6" dialing perfectly securely. It's a great size, not too small nor too large: I like the classic non-fussy design that shows off the plants beautifully. I great product that I will order again.
