    Comments about : Viva Self-Watering Saddle Railing Planter:

    I haven't had them long enough to comment on durability, but I like he way they look now. I have four white ones on the railing of our porch. They assembled and were positioned easily. At the moment, they contain pansies. I am fighting the two-fold problem of a shady area and marauding deer that think flowers are ice cream for deer. The deer cannot reach the pots up on the railing. My hope is to grow begonias, New Guinea impatiens, heuchera, and variegated vinca vine in these pots. I like the water reservoir feature as it gets hot and dry here in Texas.

          My parents moved to independent living and have a small balcony. I've given Mom two of these so far and she loves them. The flowers attract the birds and makes it seem a little bit like home. It's extremely sturdy and easy for mom to water with her limited vision. With the holes open at the bottom we don't have the plants sitting in pools of water. Colors are beautiful and she has really received numerous compliments on them. just bought a third one for an aunt who moved in recently

                I bought this planter for my friend so she could still have flowers to enjoy on her porch. Hanging baskets were too difficult to keep watered for her, and now she can easily reach this and care for the plants. In fact, I just ordered another one because she was so happy with how it looks and the color matches her porch perfectly!

                  I am happy so far with this flower planter. I like how it fits over my fence. I am now waiting for the plants to grow. I have no idea what self-watering means because there was no explanation of this either in the description in the catalog or any directions about it in the box. I would love to know what it means. Am I not ever supposed to water it. Where does the water come from?

                    I just love these planters. They fit right over the railing and the plants are doing so well. I show them to everyone and tell them where I purchased them.

                        • Railings

                        Comments about : Viva Self-Watering Saddle Railing Planter:

                        Love the color, but color on bottom is not throughout the product (sprayed). It fits my railing well even without using the stabilizing inserts. However, I wish it were a bit wider at the top to compensate for the narrowed bottom for the railing as it makes it more difficult to plant (and that depends on what you plant, of course). Regarding its self-watering aspects, it's a bit early to determine how well that is working, plus we've had a lot of recent rain. July and August should be more telling.
