    Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

    Love the self watering hanging baskets. I still use 2 white ones that are about 10 years old. They slowly start to deteriorate and lost their "nice look", so it was time to replace them.

    Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

    The plastic pots with clunky hangers that hanging baskets come in from the nursery are so ugly and plants dry out really fast in them. I bought these self watering hanging pots hoping they would be big enough, and they are actually a fair bit larger than what the plants came in, so that was a pleasant surprise. Easy enough to pop the existing root ball into the new pots and add a little more soil around the edges.

    My only real negative is the fill hole is on the lower edge of the side, which makes it tricky to fill. Once the plants get large, it's hard to spin around and find the hole, let alone get the hose to fill them without shooting the water straight back out in my face. It would be simpler if there was just a fill tube up top.

    The hanging part is some sort of synthetic rope/cord, which looks better than the crummy plastic ones from the nursery, but I wonder how long those will hold up. They are also quite tangled up when I took them out of the box initially. When these need replacing I will most likely get some light weight chain from the hardware store.

    All in all a good purchase.

      Comments about Self-Watering Hanging Basket:

      Have used and reused this planter. So great to not have to water EVERY day as with other hanging baskets. My only complaint is the rope hangers as opposed to stationary hangers. If the basket has to be removed from a higher location I have to use a ladder. On the other hand, you can adjust the ropes for different hanging lengths.

          I am amazed at how much water this holds. My million bells are flourishing with almost no attention from me. This is rare in a hanging pot. Beware, though, this is a good sized pot. With all the dirt and water, it can get heavy... have a sturdy hook!

                Almost 20 years ago I made my first purchase from Gardners Supply with their self watering window boxes. We travel, so all of the self watering containers can go just a little over a week without needed watered!! Recently purchased new hanging baskets and earlier the big pots to set out in our new stamped concret patio. A must have!!

                  the models you offer with chain hangers are not in colors I would use. I would pay extra if you offered the traditional colors with the option of chain hangers
