Flower Tower Hanging Basket
Plants must be watered every day.
This item seemed like a good idea, but the flowers only looked presentable at the beginning and soon got to look scraggly and brown especially since the water is not retained in the soil. I threw them out after the flowers were past their initial bloom. Not a good buy.

Slightly Tricky to Plant
I love the idea of this planter - my hanging baskets always seem to get really leggy and this seemed like it might be a better design. In the end, it might be, but you should know that you need to have VERY small plants to put in it. The openings are maybe 1.5 inches in diameter, which makes is difficult to put plants of any size into the pot without practically destroying them. I am going to try getting some smaller petunias and see if I have better luck than with the plants I had originally bought for it. Also, the top layer has the post that connects the lower layers to it, so you can't just put one bigger plant in the middle of the top layer - you'll want a few to plant around the post. Hoping for decent results with smaller plants?
