Best of all, it’s self-watering; simply fill the reservoir and plants receive water as they need it.

          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.

            A DIY watering tube inserted into the reservoir is the only way these could make sense.
            You'd have to cut 2 holes into either side to have water flow in and then drill overflow holes to ensure plants weren't sitting in standing water.

                Planted mums and impatients on the deck railing. Have never seen such healthy plants. Really adds some life and character to the deck. Water about every 4 days but otherwise ignored them. Great for the frequent traveler.

                  I bought 2 of these planters for next year. I have a self watering window box from Gardeners, and I absolutely love it! It cuts down my watering by half. I grow impatiens in the window box, and they are beautiful right up until our first frost. If these railing boxes work as well, it's money well spent.

                  I would like some way of telling when the planter is full of water.
