Buyer beware: not as advertised

By Sissy

from Maine

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Looks attractive

Cons

  • 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!

                              These self watering plants are perfect! I love flowers!! I purchased 2 of these to use at our second home where we may not be present to water everyday. I have beautiful flowers after 2 weeks of no additional water! Pricey but worth it.

                                I already have gotten great comments on how nice the flower boxes look. I like how they hug the rail. Flowers have taken right off in their new home. Also like the fact that they are self-watering so that I don't need to water them every single day during hot weather.

                                            Because of an injury I had to find another way to plant my flowers this year. The self-watering feature is what attracted me since it saved toting a watering can around. The flowers are doing beautifully and we're considering buying more planters next year.
