    Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

    My husband and I don't have a lot of time to take care of plants. We decided to add color to our yard with self-watering pots and this is our second year of having beautiful begonias, impatience and ferns on our deck. I also bought the self watering inserts for some of our bigger terra cotta pots and they work great! We are in Dallas,TX and it gets hot here but our yard is very shady and the large pots just need water once a week to 10 days in the early summer. As it gets hotter we check every 3-4 days and water as needed. I have found that some of the pots don't have holes in the reservoir so you can see if it is full. To solve this I took a large nail and hammered gently to put a hole in the side of the pot. Now we water until it overflows out the hole and we know the reservoir is full. Helpful hint: I put 1 Tablespoon of Miracle Grow All Purpose Plant Food (the blue granules) in a 2 gallon watering can every other time I water to keep the plants blooming. My next project is to try to grow herbs on the deck in a planter with the self watering pots. I love it when products set you up for success! Happy Gardening!!!

      Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

      I like the product and have bought more of them. They are large and hold a number of flowers. Some of mine are on their third summer.

      Biggest con's I have are that the rings rust and the string will deteriorate. Replacement rings and string hangers would be great.

        I bought these to hang on my front porch with annuals. They are really attractive and a bargain at the price. I love the self-watering feature as I don't have to worry about the plants drying out--which they will do quickly in a regular pot. I plan to get a few more to plant ever-bearing strawberries. Great product!!

          Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

          Holds about a gallon of potting mix, drains well-no gravel needed due to many thin slits that is directly over bottom of pot with glued long horz. white wick- topping the water reservoir. It works, hard to explain. All four pots well made, nylon rope is sturdy only tied/knotted up to top/gold hanging ring, each of the connecting clip is actually two small plastic barbed clips that slide into its slot (removable). Hangs balanced, a month later still supports weight of filled to brim with potting soil and huge house plants. Water reservoir is about two inches high holds easily over 42 ounces, water wicks upwards evenly to top of potting soil at the brim/total top, you can feel with finger tips how damp top soil is...I water about once a month for indoor plants with summer swamp cooler on.

            These planters work perfectly for those of us who leave for the weekend or have a cottage/cabin away from home. They keep your plants watered for the weekend and maybe another 2-3 days afterwards. I wish the reservoir was larger to ensure 5-7 days w/o watering but that may be pushing it a bit!! However, I do think they are useful and well worth the money. I have converted all my planters, both at home and away, to self watering containers and have not looked back. I have protected my investment of the hundreds of dollars I spend each year on plants for the Spring/Summer and that justifies the initial cost of converting all my planters to self watering containers. A great product!

                I was getting ready to head out of town for a vacation and didn't want to leave my hanging plants unattended. These came just in time and worked wonderfully. When I got back my plants were happy and healthy even through a heat wave. I highly recommend the self-watering hanging basket.

                  We've planted 3 "Million Bells" in our hanging basket, and they're flourishing. It's only been a month so we'll see how they do in the hot part of the summer, but so far so good. The watering hole makes it easy to keep the reservoir full. I really like the green color.

                  Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

                  I'm very happy with the appearance and capacity of the pots, and they seem likely to last well. I have them hanging from hooks in a partially- sheltered patio area. However, I bought them to decrease the need for watering since I travel often, and when I am absent my garden helpers are not as vigilant as I. It's true that we've had some high temperatures and wind on many occasions of late, and that may be the culprit, but based on my experience, don't count on them to last a week or more without having to water unless the air is completely still and temperatures are not too high. For me they've lasted between 2 and 4 days before the reservoir was completely dry, and they were completely filled each time. Also, it can be tricky to fill them, depending on how high you hang them. A thin stream from the hose or a watering can works best; otherwise, too much water flows out while you're trying to fill them. Having said all this, they are much more attractive and feel more substantial than my previous white hanging "baskets," so I will likely continue to purchase them.
