Comments about : Viva Self-Watering Balcony Railing Planter:
Bought these in red for a commercial building and they really popped! Looked great and the plants are holding up well in the self-watering system. The planters fit a 2" rail perfectly and the rest very securely.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product. I just ordered 4 more of them.
from Prescott, Az
I purchased 2 of these self-Watering Balcony Railing Planters a few years ago. I have gotten so many compliments on these. So I bought 4 more this year. They keep the plants moist if I forget to water. They fit down over the porch railings, and even great gusts of wind do not have any effect on them. Great product.
I would buy this product again!
from Aiea, Hawaii
First I would like to say how kind and helpful the staff of Gardeners Supply Company was. I live in Hawaii and trying to get items shipped here can be challenging. I did a ton of research and this product by far was the best one i found...and was so happy that they were able to ship it to me. The estimate to ship was 2 - 3 weeks...but it arrived in less than two. The planters are durable and the shinny white is perfect. I would definitely recommend this product to others.

I sometimes don't come home for days at a time and it's nice knowing my plants will look as nice when I get home as when I left

Never got to use it. I got the sweet red ones. They looked great and all but the railing set was very narrow. I honestly dont think it would fit most railings. I cant really say much about the use or self watering aspect since I did not get to use it.

Functional but the water gauge stopped working early
This planter is colorful and definitely brightens up my deck. Also it is functional but the water gauge stopped working the first season that I had it so I just water until it starts draining in order to fill the reservoirs. I have two and this happened to both.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Perfect for metal railing!
About Me Master Gardener
Beautiful, simple, looks great as a set (I have five across my railing). Cons: needs drain hole for rain storms - I drilled a small hole on each side that solved the problem.

Iike the self-watering feature
About Me Avid Gardener
I am using the planter on the railing outside my side door. It provides the right amount of water to my herb garden. The self-watering feature keeps the herbs from drying out if I'm away for a day or two.
High quality planter
Very sturdy and nice looking product. I have had many good comments about them. They are a bit smaller than I would like, but the pros outweigh that for me.
Good design, well made. Great for thin railings.

I ordered these for a client who owns a restaurant. He has narrow metal railings, so the design and color (blue) work great for his patio dinning area. I took out the self watering stuff, as you need as much space for the roots as possible and the self watering system is a bit of a joke. The box itself is fairly narrow. I am hoping it does not fade too much in our hot western colorado sun.
