        Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

        This has become my "go to" gardner gift - we have three that were part of tomato growing kits and we only grow our tomatoes in these now - they are easy to use and produce a better prodcut than planting the tomatoes in the garden. We orginally thought they needed protection, but for the past three years have used them outside in full sun - they work very well. I gave one to my sister and two to my son - they are very pleased as well.

        I liked that it shipped to Alaska in a reasonable time. Not hard to put together. Good size and yet lightweight. Attractive and practical. It is neutral enough that the flowers show up well.

          Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

          We like self watering planters very much because we are not always at home to keep plants well watered. We have found two excellent uses for these rectangular planters. Our son rents a condo and has placed several on his patio so he can enjoy growing flowers and smaller vegetables. Although we have a yard we use them for tomatoes because they do very well in the planters.

            Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

            I use two of these to grow 4 tomatoes. Although instruction said bush-type or patio type tomatoes do best in these, I've been growing all indeterminate garden-type tomatoes--Early Girl, Stupice, Super Fantastic, Better Boy, etc. I do have to use the 3rd tier of the cage, but they all do well. My original one, perhaps 10-15 yrs old, (that doesn't have the lip on edge you can hook the cage stabilizers on) had its bottom corner chewed through by a squirrel this spring. Not sure if it can be repaired without fear of it breaking through, I decided to purchase a new one. I love it, and I love it that you now offer it in variety of colors. However, I don't quite like having the fill hole located on the side, not on the end. As I put my two planters side-by-side (long sides together), it rather limits where I can put them so I can have access to both fill holes. Other than that, I expect it to perform just as well as my old one. As for my old one, my neighbor decided to try and mend it, since I "always have fabulous tomatoes". We'll see if it holds; he has purchased the self-watering planter mix from your catalog, as well as the fertilizer, and we're both eager to see how HIS tomatoes turn out.

                  Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

                  I bought this for growing herbs on a cart by the kitchen door. The idea was to set it down inside the cart, so just the plants would show above the edge. I have some of the self watering window boxes, which I like, and assumed the opening for this planter's reservoir would be at the top above the soil line as those are. But this planter is watered from the side, so I won't be able to open and fill the reservoir once I set it inside the cart.
                  Don't want to pay to ship it back, so I'll use it somewhere else--it seems sturdy and will hold a lot of soil and plants--but I wish the watering system for this style planter had been better described in the catalog.

                    I am using these for herbs, vegetables, and decorative plants. In my area I could never keep plants alive because I could not keep them watered enough in the heat of the summer. I have had great success with these for at least 4 years now, which is why I just ordered 11 more. I am using them in place of a "bed". They are far more water efficient.
