Nantucket Tall Tapered Planter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Really nice looking planter. Put some rocks in the bottom to make sure it did not blow over in hard winds. Filled the top with topsoil. In hind site, I should have used lighter weight potting soil. The planter started to visibly bow at the bottom. Continued to get worse. I finally took it apart and the shelf that holds the dirt half way up had bent and gone down sideways in the bottom. Had to dump the whole thing. Trying to get it back in shape as the inside shelf no longer fits since it has bowed out. I will try to find a pot that sits on the top, but the opening is the same width as most hanging pots, and they just slide down in. The planter is just way to light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nantucket Tall Blue Planters So happy that I found "grandinroad's" web page, where I found the tall, 31 or 32", blue Nantucket planters I was looking for. No one else offered the tall ones in blue that I wanted, and I even had to order these. Didn't have to wait very long, and couldn't be happier, as the color almost matches my front door, as planned. Hubby drilled a hole in the bottoms, as directed, and turned the inside shelf up side down, so I could put a potted plant inside. Customer service was great, and free shipping helped to seal the deal. Bought matching shutters, can't wait till they arrive, hope the color matches or blends, we'll see soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Statement piece This planter makes a statement in your landscaping. I put one white on each side of my garage door and filled it with red geraniums. It is more substantial than the smaller size planters my neighbors used, so stands out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful planter I loved the Nantucket Tapered planter but unfortunately I had to return it because it was too tall for the space I was placing it. It is a good quality planter and seemed well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stately! I was looking for planters with some height for my front porch - these fit the bill perfectly! Love that they are lightweight so easily moved, but sturdy enough to withstand being toppled over. Price is better than those I found at home improvement stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nantucket Tall Planter This planter arrived well packed with no damages. It was easy to set up. I used a drill to make the drainage hole in the side and used small pebbles to fill the troughs for water drainage into the base. I was able to fit quite a few plants in this planter and they've done very well. The design is sharp and adds a great look to my front porch. It's also an easy clean - just spay off pollen and dirt with the hose and let air dry!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nantucket Planter a Disappointment I was so excited to receive my new red tall Nantucket Planter today. I understood it was made of plastic,but I thought it would have been the same quality as my Poly Nantucket chairs. WRONG! This planter is super cheaply made and unless I put stones in the bottom it would blow away in the wind. Super disappointed and sending back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top Heavy Even though the planter didn't work for me because it was top heavy for Ohio windy days, the customer service was top notch. I had to call to get a return shipping label for the planters and customer service took care of that in a timely fashion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and great color This planter arrived on time and in good shape.We were very impressed with the quality and color. It was very easy to use and the way it is made you can plant both real and artificial flowers. It made a big improvement in our landscaping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed To tell the truth, I was a bit disappointed in the planters...I thought they would be more substantial and not just molded plastic planters.
Date published: 2015-07-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but could be great Love the look of this planter, it is VERY light weight, which is a slight problem. I will most likely put something in the bottom to hold it from blowing over. I had no problem getting the insert out, but have not decided if I like the insert. It has holes in it, I presume for drainage, but then the bottom would fill with soil or water. It is made of plastic and I presumed it was resin (my fault for not reading). If it were resin I think it would look and feel much better. Overall though I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good goods We bought 2 and they arrived quickly. They were much heavier duty than we expected and were pleased with the appearance and quality. We just planted and placed out front and are very happy with the look and the quality of the planters. We just ordered 2 more for the back yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer Service Beyond Expectations I have wanted these planters for a long time, but was not totally sure they would fit in a specific area on the front entry of my 2 story home. I called and the customer service dept called the manufacturer to find out the bottom width of the planter as it tapers to the width mentioned in the description. It is 14 " at the base. I was really impressed that they took the time to get these measurements for me!! The planters arrived in a few days and are wonderful-and so maintenance free. I will definitely purchase again from this great company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love 'em Wanted to replace lower, wider urns that flanked my front door. These really give a nice vertical line and complement the white mullions in my screen door. I thought the directions and graphic for drilling the drainage hole were clear and I'm very happy so far. I am concerned about the water in the bottom "well" freezing in the winter, but if the planter buckles, you'll be the first to know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item Loved these planters. They are a perfect height and nice detail. They are a little lightweight, so I put 4 bricks in the bottom of each planter and that also raised the plants up. The pair looks great flanking my front Double doors with red coleus plants in them! Loved the sale price and free shipping too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, well built, nice finish Very pleased to receive two lovely black Nantucket planters to flank our gates. The finish looks just like wood that was painted with a satin gloss product. These seem to be sturdy and built with care. Time will tell how they endure. The packaging was very secure and they arrived at the promised time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular! I purchased two of the Nantucket Tall Tapered Planters in black to sit on either side of my black front door. The effect, with pink and blue flowers and ivy planted, is spectacular! I took the suggestion of another reviewer and placed a couple of bricks in each one before filling them with planting mix. The bricks lend weight to keep them steady in the wind. Great purchase overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these planters! I ordered 2 of the Nantucket Tall planters to be used by my front door. They look wonderful! I have already have received several compliments on them. I was able to remove the tray and put it upside down so I could just drop a container in there and I was good to go! No having to deal with potting soil, etc. Highly recommend these planters. I did put a couple of bricks in the bottom as we get quite a bit of wind and they haven't tipped over in the lastest wind and rain storms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Planter I bought two planters to place outside my front. These planters made the porch look like its a million dollar home! Thanks so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! This planter arrived in a timely manner and was packaged well. It actually looked nicer than I had anticipated. Felt a bit light, so I added a brick inside each one to help on windy days. Have had many complements. Would definitely purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nantucket review I love the look of these planters however they do not drain well. I used them to plant topiaries. They looked great however by the end of the season I had to replace one of the plants. The planter was not draining properly and eventually drowned the plant. Water tends to collect within the planter which eventually smells terrible and drowns the plants. I even poked more holes into the bottom & sides the container hoping to resolve the issue but to no avail.

I don’t understand how this is self watering. As soon as the water drops below the soil there nothing to bring it up and into the pot?

Asked by: Cody51
Thank you for your interest in the Nantucket Tall Tapered Planter. 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.
