Additional Information

Exclusive | Italian Trough Planter Creates a Lush Terrace Garden

  • Generous Capacity: You'll get extra soil capacity and deep reservoirs not found in their American counterparts. Trough Planter holds 130 quarts of soil and 4 gallons of water.
  • Unmatched Quality: Rigid construction fends off scuffs and scratches, and they won't fade or bow in the strongest sun or under the heaviest load.
  • Self-Watering: Water only once a week, thanks to a dual-action system that uses cotton wick and evaporation
  • Timeless Design: Crisp lines and realistic wood grain, plus a choice of two classic finials, make for a sharp, uniform appearance around your property
  • We recommend seven 20-quart bags of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix; each of these planters holds 130 quarts

Our exclusive Italian Terrazza planters offer classic styling with self-watering convenience. In Italy, where style is everything, these innovative planters beautify residential terraces, side-street cafes, hotel lobbies and public courtyards. This large-capacity Terrazza Trough Planter is often the centerpiece. Make the planter mobile with optional casters, sold separately (each planter requires two sets).

      Comments about : Terrazza Trough Planter, White:

      I have three of these, having purchased one each of the past 3 years. They are all on a sunny deck and I can't tell the difference between the oldest one and the newest as far as color (mine are brown). I have left them out over the winters. Easy to put together, and keeps plants happy if we are away for a few days as long as we water just before leaving. I have not found the water indicator to be useful as my finger in the soil works just as well to check watering needs!

        We bought these several years ago for our co-op roof deck, where they get full sun all year round. They show almost no signs of aging and we get compliments on them very often. I just bought some more for a new area, and we expect them to hold up just as well.

                Comments about : Terrazza Trough Planter, White:

                I bought a trough planter several years ago then later bought the extension to grow blueberries here in Florida. Now, the plastic around the top edge is breaking off in chunks. The white has turned mottled gray...very unattractive. Afraid of painting or moving it due to being so fragile. All in all, it was nice for about 3 years but the sun started taking it's toll. Can't recommend considering it's price and short longivity even though it functioned as advertised.

                    Nice planter but the self waterer could be improved. The line to the waterer pulls up easily with kids! Needs to be a little bit sturdier.

                      So far, so good. It is still early in the season here in Ohio, so with cheap 16" x 12" glass panels ($10 total) and duct tape (to cover the edges), I have converted it into an improvised cold frame to start my tomato plants from seed.

                      It will be a few months before I can check the utility of the self watering feature.

                        We originally bought these planters 11 years ago and although we put them away for the winter, they have become brittle, likely from the sunlight. They adorn our porch from spring to fall with Marguerite Daisies and have received many compliments on the appearance.

                          Many of the reviews comment on the instructions being difficult to follow and that the fill tube & its cover become brittle and break in the sun. I'm puzzled that Gardener's Supply hasn't addressed these two points
