Self Watering Window Boxes and Planters
Self-watering window boxes have become extremely popular in that they keep your window boxes and flower containers looking healthy even when you don't have the time to maintain them. With our self-watering reservoir system, you may take longer trips away from home and not worry that your plants will fade or get sick. The technological solution that allows our flower box to become a self-watering window box is our patented water reservoir WICKINATOR (TM). With the variety of length options available, Wickinator perfectly fits all custom sizes of our PVC flower window boxes and planters. The ability to store up to an additional gallon of water or more below the root surface and release it gradually in the soil allows you to water your plants 3-5 times less frequently.
What others say about our self-watering window boxes:
"Perfect for vacations and those who want less maintenance! Water 3x less frequently! No setup required, sits right in the box!"
How Does Our Window Box Watering System Work?
Our patented WICKINATOR (TM) water reservoir is a self-watering system that
stores up to 1.5 gallons or more of extra water at the bottom of your window box to turn it into a self-watering window box. The WICKINATOR (TM) works by drawing water from the reservoir up the wicks and into the soil.
Normally, an excess of standing water in the planter would drown out roots and result in plant death. With our system, as the soil dries out, more water is drawn from the watering reservoir into the wick to act as an automatic self-watering system to keep your soil watered but not drown out your roots.
It is usually recommended that you water a regular 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 for weeks at a time.
Take advantage of our low prices and turn any of our window boxes or planters into self-watering window boxes in minutes.
