Best Uses

  • Annuals
  • Lack Of Instructions
  • Patio Vegetables

I decided to put my tomatoes in planters on my patio this year, but didn't have quite enough planters. I chose to buy two of these because they are inexpensive compared to others, and I can put them to use as trugs next year when I will probably not need so many planters, and I can stack them when they're not in use. What you get is a kit comprised of a 7-gallon tubtrug and a large self-watering planter insert, so if you want a color of tubtrug that's not shown here, you can just buy the tubtrug and an insert, but this kit is less expensive than buying each separately. They are very cheerful and hold a good amount of potting soil. I'm pleased with them.

The one drawback is that you need to drill a hole for drainage. This is very minor in the sense that it doesn't take much time and is very easy if you have the right kind of bit and a power drill, but there is no indication from Gardener's supply that you need to do this, or instruction about where to place the hole (= on the side of the planter below the level of the top of the reservoir). As it happens, I've run into this issue with self-watering planter kits before and figured it out when I saw there was no hole in the tubtrug, but if you're someone new to self watering planters, you might have an unpleasant surprise if you found your soil turned into soup in a heavy rain!
