Choice of designer colors
Don't hang your plants out to dry! These Self-Watering Hanging Baskets dramatically reduce watering chores while keeping flowers bright and foliage lush. A patented dual-action wick system (capillary mat plus evaporation grill) distributes water from a 1-quart reservoir so your hanging plants are never dry, never over watered. Convenient refill hole is located at the bottom, so you don't need a ladder to water your flowering baskets. Made from durable polypropylene that is resistant to cracking, chipping, and breaking. 12-1/2" in diameter, with a flat-bottom design that sits or hangs.
I live in the country in northwest Ohio and purchased six of these to hang on the pergola over my deck and on the front porch. They have cord hangers which makes it impossible to remove them from the hooks above my head for deadheading without getting out a ladder or step stool. I finally removed the cords and replaced them with wire so I can simply push up the bottom of the basket and remove the hanger from the hook. The spout of my watering can did not fit the reservoir fill hole and I could not find a large can with a spout that would fit it. With the potting mix wet and the reservoir full I still needed to water the next day unless it rained about an inch. We get a fair breeze most days and they dry out. They perform no differently than non-selfwatering baskets in my area.
