      Catalog picture incorrect

      By Marcia

      from Franklin, NH

      Verified Buyer

      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.

      Looking Good

      By Dulcefeliz

      from Delran, NJ

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • It Really Looks Nice

      Cons

      • Was Big Needed Adjustin

      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.

            Buyer beware: not as advertised

            • NOT THE SIZE ADVERTISED

            Best Uses

              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.

                          A little bulky but working well for our back deck

                          By busycitymom

                          from Boston, MA

                          Verified Reviewer

                          We tried these planters for our front porch and the container was just too huge/ bulky looking.

                          The planter is very tall because it is meant to accommodate 2 railing sizes. I think it would be better if they just designed it for one railing size (but offer 2 different products to choose from)

                          Nevertheless, it has worked out well for us on our back deck (for some reason, doesn't look as bulky there). My plants have thrived there and I seem to only need to water every other week (mind you, it's not hot yet and it's only a part sun location). My husband actually asked me to order another one. I like the mocha color a lot.

                          Does not work with PVC railings

                          Pros

                          • Self-watering Unit

                          Cons

                          • no other sizes available
                          • Too expensive
                          • Too Large For Pvc Railing

                          Best Uses

                            I had to return the two self-watering railing planters b/c they did not fit the PVC railings. The planters were too big, and unfortunately, there were no other choices for that type of railing.

                            The price of this item is quite high for the type of material these are made with, even with the self-watering unit. It's basically all plastic.

                                  Thought I had finally found a good railing planter that didn`t need a rack to holdno it. turned out it`s a swimming pool after a hard rain, plants were floating and all the potting mix was on and over the deck! Needs some kind of drain with filter to empty it when this happens, not once but twice!
