Additional Information

This Planter Tells You When it Needs Water

  • Grow flowers, vegetables and herbs on your deck or patio
  • Self-watering planter has an indicator to tell you when the reservoir needs refilling
  • Long-lasting, UV-stabilized polypropylene
  • We recommend one 20-quart bag of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix; each of these planters holds 16 quarts

All of our self-watering planters protect against drought, but this one does more — it has a water-level indicator that tells you when to refill the reservoir, and a convenient funnel that lets you water from the top. Made of UV-stabilized polypropylene, these planters resist cracking, chipping and fading, and the sides are braced to prevent bowing.

Product Details

  • Made of UV-stabilized polypropylene
  • 2-quart reservoir and holds 16 quarts of potting mix
  • 9-1/2" wide by 8-1/2" high

    I find a few of these helpful for herbs or a flower box type display on a wide step. The reservoir helps plants withstand my less than timely watering!

      Just received these planters, but am anticipating that they will be as wonderful as the window box self-watering planters, from Gardener's Supply, that we had for at least 10 years. They hold up well in hot and cold weather (we didn't bring in for winter in NJ) and the self-watering system still works. The watering system is different in these new planters - so time will tell if they hold up as well as the old.

          We have had flower boxes for years but always had issues with watering and getting the flowers to prosper. We got these boxes this season and our flowers are perfect, no watering issues, and they have made our lives so much easier. No discussions with my husband about watering, etc. The flowers look the best of any boxes in the area. Thank you.

              Color labeling

              Comments about : 23" Self-Watering Trough Planter:

              "Stone" is really more of a sand color. In the picture, it appears as white, which is what we wanted. Very disappointed when I opened box and saw tan planters.

                  The color labeled "stone" for this planter is really tan and should have been labeled "sand", for instance. I thought I was ordering white, as it appears in the picture. The picture is nothing like what I received. Very disappointed. If you want white, then don't order this planter.

                  This is my first self-watering container and I'm very pleased with it. The capillary action works well, as does the water level indicator, which is really handy. They provide instructions for where to drill holes if used as an outdoor planter in the event of heavy rains.

                        This is my first year with these planters. Radishes are growing in one of them. We plan to grow turnips in the other.

                        I got this box for for seedlings that grew too big and the weather was too cold to plant out yet. I will also make a herb box to stay in for winter. It has excellent depth for the size and the self watering works great. Wish it was a little prettier. Also I ordered the stone color which looks white in the website picture, it is not white at all.
