            Catalog picture incorrect

            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.

            • 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.

                  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

                                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.

                                • 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.
