It says to water weekly for using the self watering system. Approximately how much water do I use for the Nantucket tall planter? The planter is on a shaded front porch. 

Asked by: BBH18
Thank you for your interest Nantucket Tall Tapered Planter. This will depend upon your environment. Once the reservoir is full, capillary action allows water to soak upward keeping the soil and plant roots moist. The overflow hole drilled in the side of the planter allows drainage of excess water and prevents oversaturation. Regular watering is required for the first few weeks giving the root system time to develop. Once the roots have grown down into the troughs the plant will be able to pull moisture from the reservoir creating a self watering effect. With this system you will find the potting mix stays moist longer than traditional containers planters. Please note that even with the reservoir and self watering effect, occasional watering is still needed.

Do you sell any kind of liner for the tapered urn ? Doesn’t seem to work well to plant live plants in there, even bought a cocoa type mat from. Ursey to hold the dirt , still seems like the shelf gets too heavy and drops down .only designed for fake plant

Asked by: Jboyle
Thank you for your interest in the Nantucket Tall Tapered Planter. This item is designed to hold both fake and real plants. If the insert is designed to sit securely approximately half way down the inside section of this planter and a lightweight potting mix is recommended.

do i have to use a potted plant or can i add soil and then plant..also where do i add the water

Asked by: Kate69
Thank you for your interest in the Nantucket Tall Tapered Planter. You can put soil and plants directly into this planter, and then add water directly to the soil. The integrated self-watering system will allow any excess water to fill the internal reservoir so the roots, once established, can "self water" from the reservoir as needed.

Do I need to weigh down planter so it does not top heavy?

Asked by: Margaret Mary
Thank you for your interest in the Nantucket Tall Tapered Planter. You should not need to add weight to the bottom of this planter as the self-watering system allows water to fill the water reservoir at the bottom which will add weight. However, if you wish to add more weight to the bottom the insert can be removed and weight added underneath it.

Is their a drain hole?

From what I understand, I can plant my own flowers or buy a preplanted pot?
Asked by: Anonymous
It has drain holes in the removable tray insert. You do need to drill drainage holes in the exterior. The instructions include information on two different drainage options. Option 1 requires holes on the side to utilize the water trough system. Option 2 requires holes in the bottom for use as a regular planter.

So confused..

Ok so there's no drain hole.. but a self watering system to be used w/a liner? How does that drain?? Obviously this isn't rocket science but I want to make sure I understand how this works . These are on the pricey side, which I'm fine with but want to make sure they are for me!!
Asked by: Anonymous
Because there are 2 ways to use the planter (with or without a water reservoir) the drainage holes are not pre-drilled. There should have been instructions in the shipping box with your planter showing you where to drill drainage holes depending on how you want to use the planter. I kept the liner in mine and drilled a hole at the top right corner of the lower "box" design. The instructions have illustrations to help you see where to drill. Then I filled the troughs with pebbles, the soil on top for my plants. It was really easy.
