Self watering planters are awesome. Dave and I love the idea of planters on porches.

But when it's really hot or you go away for a few days, what is the biggest problem you have? Your plants dry out very quickly.

There are multiple solutions to keeping your plants watered, some of them being true self-watering pots and others being probes, spikes, troughs and even systems with mason-type jars. We found some good self-watering ideas on Amazon.





Consider a self-watering planter on your porch or deck if you:
  • Love to decorate your porch with live flowers and plants
  • Love flowers
  • Like to garden
  • Like fresh herbs or vegetables
  • Work lots of hours or travel often
  • Oops! Not one to conscientiously care for plants



Planters work in small or large spaces. We like the idea of gardening right on the porch - it's so handy to tend to herbs and tomato plants when they are right out your front door.

Whether you have a small porch or a spacious space, an outdoor planter is perfect for climbing vines, potted plants, gorgeous greens and colorful blooms.
