This generously sized planter has an equally big, 8-gallon water reservoir! Ideal for hot, dry climates and
vacation homes; large enough for ornamental shrubs and dwarf trees. Depending on climate and plants, the reservoir may need filling only every four to six weeks!

Cords broke - now what?
from Boston, MA
When I raised the cords up, I pulled way too hard and they snapped; then my toddler pulled them all the way out. Now I have two pieces of rope instead of loops! Could I feed the ends back down through the holes? The soil will hold them in place, I assume. How critical is it, for wicking purposes, that the cords be attached inside the water reservoir? See photo. Thanks!!

Best of the West
By archy 17
from Central Texas
Am using for container fig trees that need to be moved indoors for winter. Wish there was a little less water storage space and a little more plant root room. Plenty of room to cope with our dry Texas conditions.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Self-watering starts after 3 months
I bought these to use outdoors in New England, where 3 months is about the whole season, so I will not get much out of the self-watering feature (which I was after). They do look nice for synthetic pots, but because they hold water, I cannot leave them out in the winter, like I can with my weather-proof synthetic pots that are not self-watering.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

One big water reservoir
By Container Gardener
from Beaumont, TX
I haven't actually had time to judge the performance of this product, but if it is like other planters from Gardener's Supply, it will last forever. I have two dwarf lemon trees that I want to transfer to these planters. I just can't keep them watered in this heat, and the huge water reservoir should help with that problem.

Information not given
By yellow jacket
from Ashland OR
I wanted a large planter and the fact that this one was self-watering seemed to be a plus. However, after I received the planter, I read the instructions for use and found that the planter could not be left outside in freezing weather. This is a real disadvantage and had I known this ahead of time, I would not have bought this product. Since I had already recycled the boxes used for packing, I could not return the planter. Temperature restrictions on a product should be listed in the product description.
