Additional Information

Self-Watering Hanging Basket for Beautiful Plants with Less Work

  • An attractive and easy-care hanging basket for porch or patio
  • Durable polypropylene planter resembles woven wicker
  • High-capacity water reservoir needs filling less often
  • Basketweave texture coordinates with other Lechuza® Cottage Wicker planters
  • Lightweight, UV-resistant and weatherproof
  • 10-1/2" diameter x 9" high

Reduce watering worries and keep plants healthy in the self-watering Lechuza® Nido Cottage Wicker Hanging Basket. A removable liner makes planting and maintenance quick and tidy. The strong, stainless steel hanger holds the basket securely in place. The water-tight basket also doubles as a tabletop planter.

This all-in-one planter includes a specially formulated granular material, called Lechuza PON, that's made from nutrient-enriched pumice, zeolites and lava. The clean, attractive material wicks water up from the built-in reservoir, aerates the roots and provides your plant with nutrition. A layer of Lechuza PON spread over the reservoir wicks water to the potting mix around your plant’s roots.

The water reservoir releases moisture as your plants need it and lets you water less often. A built-in water-level indicator tells you when it’s time to add more water. The stylish outer pot is watertight so you can place it directly on furniture without worrying about leaks. Inside, a matching liner easily lifts out, making it easy to change plants, repot, trim roots and rinse leaves. For outdoor use, there's a removable drainage plug on the bottom of the pot. From the makers of classic Playmobile® toys, award-winning Lechuza planters are crafted in Germany from durable, shatterproof, UV-safe plastic.

All-in-one planter includes the container, liner, water level indicator, stainless steel hanging assembly and Lechuza PON.

These are beautiful!

By Heather

from Elizabeth, WV

Verified Buyer

  • No daily watering.

Comments about : Nido Cottage Wicker Hanging Basket:

These are the prettiest hanging planters I have ever seen. I ordered 2 last year to try them out. I ordered 2 more for this year because I love them. I only have to water my ferns every couple of days as opposed to daily before. I used to soak them in a tub of water in order for them to have enough water. Last summer I had the most beautiful ferns ever. It is all because of these great hanging planters.

German made hanging baskets

By deedee

from nj

Comments about : Nido Cottage Wicker Hanging Basket:

Love that it is an entire system. The one downside is that you can' buy the granular mix that comes with the original set. I guess I will buy the Gardners Supply shelf watering potting soil to see how that works

    Worth every penny!

    By Sally and Harry

    from Mountains of Washington

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : Nido Cottage Wicker Hanging Basket:

    My flowers were in little plastic tubs on the deck, awaiting the giant box from Gardener's supply. I'd been collecting just the right varieties, in exactly the right colors. I'd gone and bit the bullet and paid quite a bit for each pot, more than I usually pay, but I was tired of my hanging pots throwing themselves off the front deck as their cheap clips snap off.
    Harry, our golden retriever, and I danced with anticipation around the UPS driver as he arrived. A dog biscuit for Harry, and my Gardner's Supply box for me. I open up the package and there are little bits and pieces that need to be assembled. I try to hide my disappointment, and be adult about it, go to find my reading glasses and carefully follow the diagramed instructions, taking out the little tubes, little floats and un-taping the little red indicators that fit inside the little clear tubes. Harry has finished with his dog biscuit from the UPS man, I am still trying to assemble the first of six new baskets.
    I eagerly pour the magic gravel into the bottom of the inner pot, and nestle the carnival of flowers into the first of my outer pots. I discover that if you twist the inner basket just so, the fill hole can be in alignment with the support wire. (Our watering system tubes follow the wire down and fits into the fill hole, very neat and tidy.)
    I put the other incredibly strong looking wires into their holes and marvel at the engineering of these treasures.
    I notice Harry is doing the dance of triumph... the dance of triumph??? What has he triumphed over?? I find bits of plastic bag and the remains of an indicator tube in bits and pieces on the deck. I sigh. I put up the other plastic pieces out of reach and start to fill the other baskets.
    I turn around in time to stop Harry from swinging a plastic bag of special gravel around until it ruptures. I put up the other bags of gravel.
    I finally hang the baskets... so lovely! The wires are almost invisible, the espresso "wicker" is tastefully neutral, the hanging hooks swivel, making it easy to attend every side of the flower basket.
    It's been a few weeks now, and the flower pots are exceeding my expectation. I am budgeting now for the baskets in back... and the flower boxes... while Harry looks forward to the next visit from the UPS man, and his bottomless box of dog biscuits.

    Perfect Planter

    By Anne

    from Hagerstown, MD

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : Nido Cottage Wicker Hanging Basket:

    I just love the new German planters carried at Gardener's Supply. They are very useful for those of us who can't get to watering as often, and they are durable and attractive. This planter totally revived my fushias and it is durable and easy to use.

    Nido cottage wicker hanging baskets

    By pfetty

    from Wauwatosa, WI

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : Nido Cottage Wicker Hanging Basket:

    I ordered these (2) for my front porch that gets quite a bit of West sunlight and have difficulty with the traditional hanging baskets. They dry out quickly and drip on furniture of pillows on my porch. None of this happens with these planters. They are attractive, deep, swivel, hold up to 35 pounds, and have a self contained water tray in the bottom(concealed) that has allowed my plants to thrive. The main reason for that is the fact that the water tray has an indicator needle that lets you know how much water is left in the tray. Initially I thought they were a little pricey because I had to buy two but they have been well worth the cost as I have not had to replace dying plants due to lack of hydration.

      Comments about : Nido Cottage Wicker Hanging Basket:

      I needed a new hanging basket for an indoor plant that I've had for 20+ years and I was very excited to find this one listed as "new" online. It's beautiful and practical and far exceeds the quality of the ones I've come across in stores. Well worth the price!
