This Planter Tells You When it Needs Water

  • Please note: to have this item delivered by Christmas, choose the 2-Day or Overnight shipping option in checkout
  • 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 two 20-quart bags of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix; each of these planters holds 22 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. In Terra Cotta, Stone or Green.

I will be purchasing more!

Comments about : 31" Self-Watering Trough Planter:

I had to transplant all my balcony plants because of a drip issue in a very short amount of time. I was leaving for a 2 week trip to South Africa and didn't want to rely on my exceptional neighbors to water the plants while I was away. ALL the plants not only survived, but also thrived. I am now "freed" and will be able to travel knowing my plants will not need any care from neighbors!

    This is a great planter, the only negative I had was that I had to drill holes in the bottom to use it outside (per instructions)

        Excellent investment. These self-watering planters gave me the best flowers I've ever had on my patio. I still had to water daily in the areas of all-day high heat but it's better than needing to water 3 times a day as I've needed to in the past. The boxes did not fade in the sun.

          Nice looking planter, the self watering feature seems to work well. I have it outside on my patio, and this required drilling some holes which is not a big deal except the instructions for doing so were absolutely terrible.

            Bought 5 of these for my outside deck and planted sweet potato vines in them. They're perfect. If you use them outside, you have to drill drainage holes, but it's pretty easy to do that.

              We have 12 of these on a stepped rack to hold strawberries off the ground. They are lightweight enough to lift them even after filled with soil. They seem to be sturdy and the self-watering feature is a nice safeguard if the drip doesn't work for some reason. The crosspiece to prevent them from bulging when full is terrific. They did not get five stars because two of the twelve crosspieces have already broken.
