The Franklin Self-Watering Planter combines classic design with sub-irrigation technology for a planter that's equal parts form and function. Our patented sub-irrigation insert and specially formulated aeration stones allow plants to drink from the roots, just as nature intended. Simply lift the planter to refill the dish below when the reservoir is empty. Watering from below ensures fast growth and healthy plants. It's never been easier to know when and how much to water your plants!
