Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

I used to plant my garden in a 20' X 30' plot of land. By using these planters, I save myself a lot of time and work: no more tilling, no weeding, less watering, etc. The yield from these planters really surprise me. I had tomato plants that were over 7' tall. I cannot find any flaws in the construction of these planters, they hold up well season after season.

    Comments about Self-Watering Patio Planters:

    I have two. One with 2 tomato plants and one with a cucumber and a squash plant. In 4 weeks I have lots of small tomatoes plus lots of blooms and tons of blooms on the cucumber and squash plants (even have some tiny cucumbers forming). Very excited.

    This will be my fourth year using these. Still look like new. They are sturdy and effective. Everything that I grow in it is healthy and thriving. Have used them for basil, tomatoes, and strawberries

        I love the self-watering feature. It keeps the plant watered evenly, and it's easy to fill. It works as advertised.

        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.
