      Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

      Theboxes themselves are fine and work well, but the boxes they came in were not heavy enough to keep the damage caused by shipped to be stopped. There were corners broken out and chipped plastic on almost all of the boxes I ordered. I needed them right away so a m using them despite the damages, but wanted you to know that you need to do a better job on the packaging!

        Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

        First of all, Gardeners Supply has staff that are a delight to speak with. They are patient, answer all questions offering suggestions when appropriate.
        The self water planters are a dream for a starting gardener. I live with a balcony that has sun all day, lots of ocean breezes and a ton of air pollution. I added wheels to ease the moving of my three planters because as the plants grow I may need to rearrange them. One of the three is the tomato kit. It's ideal because it comes with all one needs. I could go on and on but you get the picture. I highly recommend the self watering planter because I know my plants are getting the moisture they need. Last, for a small garden the size of these planters is ideal.

        Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

        I had the older style with a top filler, but eventually the internal grid broke making it useless (after several years). I bought 2 of these as a replacement. Both broke out the bottom after just one season, one from being blown off the deck in 60 mph wind gusts, and the other around the wheels (weight maybe? It did have a rather full load of tomatoes at the time). The plastic it is made of is not flexible enough, and the side fill makes it harder the tell when watering is needed.

              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.

Start with this simple rule: Combine plants with three different habits. In other words, thrillers, fillers and spillers.
