Self-Watering Window Boxes and Water Reservoirs

Self-watering window boxes have become extremely popular in that they keep your window boxes and flower containers looking healthy even when you do not have the time to maintain them. The WICKINATOR (TM) is our patented self-watering window box water reservoir that is available in any custom length to fit our window boxes perfectly. It has the ability to store up to an additional gallon of water or more below the root surface so that you water 3-5 times less frequently. And best of all, they are available in custom sizes at an affordable price. They can be used with both our window boxes and planters.

"Perfect for vacations and those who want less maintenance! Water 3x less frequently! No setup required, sits right in the box!"

How it Works: Our patented WICKINATOR (TM) water reservoir is a self-watering system that stores up to 1 gallon or more of extra water at the bottom of your window box to turn it into a self-watering window box. Standing water will drown out roots and result in plant death. The WICKINATOR (TM) works by drawing water from the reservoir up the wicks and into the soil. As the soil dries out, more water is drawn from the watering reservoir to act as an automatic self watering system to keep your soil watered, but not drowning out your roots. It is normal to have to water a window box every 1-3 days.With our self-watering window boxes you will water 3-5 times less frequently allowing your plants to be watered weeks at a time. Turn any of our window boxes into self watering window boxes in minutes.
