  • 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.

    I bought two for my back porch. One seen from the great room is planted with wave petunias. The other seen from the kitchen is an herb garden. Perfect -- either way you see it!

          I have 6 of the self-watering railing planters. I use them to grow herbs on my deck. Easily holds 2-4 plants per planter. I left them on my railing during a very harsh winter and they weathered just fine. I absolutely love them.

                    These planters give you generous planting space. My deck gets sun all day long and the water reservoir seems to help keep them from drying out and wilting.

                      I was worried this planter would not fit on my deck railing, but when I tried it, it fit like a glove! It holds a decent amount of plants and my flowers grew and continued to bloom all season long! During the hot, hot months, I would drench the soil in the pots until water would pour out of the drilled overfill hole. I would only need to do this twice a week! Wonderful!!!
