5 Star Review   By KatieW on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I love this thing. I don't have time for a big garden but this is perfect for some tomatoes, peppers and herbs. It was easy to put together and the wheels make it handy to move inside during bad weather. It does everything I need it to do and it cost less than the other raised garden options I saw.

The patio garden kit was much more than we thought. We followed the directions and now have some great plants growing in it. It doesn't take a lot of work and looks nice. Hope to have tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers for salad soon. Next year hope to add another one to it.

City Pickers Patio Garden Kit
5 Star Review   By Carol on Home Depot - Jun 5, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I love mine. It went together fast - Did the 3 rows of plants. I now have tomatoes and peppers growing in my Florida lanai area. Since we can grow just about all year round down here in Florida - I am looking around for 2 more to fill with veggies. My only complaint is that I wish they had an attachable hand to put on when you want to move the box a round instead of having to bend down and push it around.

City Pickers is my pick!
4 Star Review   By froglady on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

After seeing my neighbors tomatoes grow last year in one of these, I decided to give it a try. I planted 3 tomato plants and one squash in it and they are looking beautiful, growing faster than the plants in my raised beds! I would recommend this to anyone, but especially to my friends who are green thumb challenged like I am.

5 Star Review   By HappyCamperToo on Home Depot - May 28, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I love the idea of growing my own food, but have an uncanny knack for over watering, under watering, etc. I read the reviews and decided to try it. I followed the directions exactly, and the do require you to use specific potting mix and additives, so definitely read instructions before you jump in.

Excellent product
5 Star Review   By Tanja on Home Depot - May 25, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Excellent product of good quality, would prefer a little bigger but serves the purpose. It is easy to assemble; my one little weal broke, but I wasn’t upset about it, I am not going to push them around anyway. I bought 3 and will buy more next season. I am in love with City Picker even though I have the garden space and practically do not need it. I prefer container gardening, it is neat and clean, and self-watering system truly helps so I decided to give it a try and am extremely happy with my choice. My plants are growing beautifully. Thank you.

Good product
4 Star Review   By Sumwar on Home Depot - May 24, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The build quanlity and finish is nothing to brag about but not bad for 30 dollars. The only thing I have been most unhappy with is the mulch cover. It doesn't seem to be the right size and almost tears as you try to stretch it and fit it around the corners.

Great Product for Decks and Patios
5 Star Review   By BEF54 on Home Depot - May 21, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This is an ideal product to grow plants on a deck or patio. Assembly requires no tools and can be put together in a few minutes. The assembled product is lightweight and easy to carry around. The wheels allow you to move it around with little or no effort when fully planted.

Easy Assembly
5 Star Review   By HappyGardener on Home Depot - May 21, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I love this little unit. Occasionally I have to be gone for a couple of days and the self watering aspect assures I won't come home to dried up lettuce and flowers. This is perfect for so many reasons, one of them is the portability, I can move this little unit wherever I want it without too much hassle, so depending on what I plant in it, I can easily move it into direct sun or a more shady location in a snap. Great product!

I bought this because I have tried planting tomatoes in our Florida "sand"....no luck there. Then I found this! My tomatoes plants are amazing! They have tripled in size. I also planted cucumbers from seeds and they have totally taken over! This is the greatest thing EVER! Would highly recommend!

So far the plants are growing GREAT! I didn't plant as heavily as the instructions indicated you could - I limited it to 4 or 5 plants. I can't wait for the veggies.

My husband just ran one of these beds over with his F-150. It was full of somewhat newly planted vegetable and fruit plants. Guess what. It survived! Only one wheel broke too! I was able to adjust the plants, refill the water and he got to live. *lol*

easy way to grow in Arizona
5 Star Review   By tucsoncook on Home Depot - May 4, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This is a spendy unit but well worth the price. Grows tomatos and peppers better that any other way we have found in Arizona. My kids and I put this together in about 5 mins. and so far the plants are doing great. easy to plant, water, and harvest

So far so good! I've only started it a week ago...
4 Star Review   By AvidTomatoGrower on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This rating would be "excellent" if my tomato is truly happy with it, probably in 2-3 months I will find out. So far so good.... both are growing in the two planter boxes I purchased. I am an avid tomato grower and I used to grow more! Unfortunately, this is the first time I have had to use planter boxes because we moved to a smaller place with a smaller backyard! All my flowering plants are now occupying most of the spaces... They need a home too! ;) Will change rating later depends on how happy my tomatoes are in these boxes! Will take before and after pictures.

This product allows me to garden where I could not before.
5 Star Review   By aloha on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Product arrived promptly then I bought soil and other related items - mixed everything up - planted new plants - and it is the easiest garden I have ever had. Watering is just filling up the pipe - no weeding. I put my three garden boxes in a sunny location on ground that was so full of roots, etc. that nothing would grow no matter how much mulch was added. The plants are huge and this includes yellow squash, which has crawled out of the box onto mulch on the ground and is full of squash blossoms! Am very happy I tried this product.

This is a great Way to Garden!!!
5 Star Review   By Grumpy on Home Depot - Apr 14, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I advise you to pull up on the tie wrapped black tray and pull out the instruction sheet while you're still in the Home Depot. You can then figure out the correct potting mix, lime additive and vegtable fertilizer needed during the set up. If a wheel stem doesn't snap in as supposed to, just wrap a bit of the packing cellophane around stem and it will be tight when inserted. I put eight starter tomatoes in and will leave in front of patio door for now while we finish out this lingering winter of April 2013'. Second unit set up and waiting for cucumber starters to arrive at my Home Depot in Seabrook New Hampshire.

Could never grow anything before!
5 Star Review   By DCWineGirl on Home Depot - Apr 13, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

So happy with the results that I've had with the CityPickers kit in my tiny, city "front yard". I read the other reviews first and found out that there was some special instructions and supplies needed to make it successful, so I recommend pulling out the instructions (secured under the black screen in the un assembled pack) before you leave the store to make sure you have everything you need: potting soil (not mix), garden lime, fertilizer pellets (not liquid), etc. I agree with another reviewer that once you get everything you need to get started, it's not quite the amazing deal it seems

5 Star Review   By Sunny on Home Depot - Apr 10, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

We purchased one of these units and planted early spring greens. They are performing spectacularly - so much so, that we have purchased another for tomatoes and we plan to purchase another for squash and zucchini.

A great product for growing great plants of any kind!
5 Star Review   By vegetablelover on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This planting system is very reasonable for how much value it has! The subterranean watering system is virtually foolproof in protecting plants from underground and in-ground pest attacks, plus plants grow faster, bigger and stronger when planted according to the directions, which call for added dolomite (calcium) and the recommended fertilizer and planting mix. Its cost is not too different from other "regular" planters, but it really performs! Thanks for carrying this, Home Depot -- it's a bit hard to find in stores or on other websites, especially at your price!

THE BEST THING FOR MY FOLKS!
5 Star Review   By PlanterHappy on Home Depot - Sep 10, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

My folks are in assisted living and sorely missed their garden. We gave them this for Mother's Day and helped Mom plant it with flowers and a tomato plant. I am told DAILY how much they enjoy it and how they go out daily to see it and water it. The tomato plant has taken off like a house-afire and they are eating tomatos off it regularly. The size is good and it is sturdy and we especially love that it is movable!! It is an all-around great product for a very reasonable price! Happy In Washington

Great for those who forget to water
5 Star Review   By Mike on Home Depot - Aug 20, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I bought this as a starter for an herb garden. I love that it was on casters which made it easy to find the perfect spot in my yard before building a more permanent raised garden bed. Additionally the self-contained watering system is great since I had a hard time figuring out when the herbs were potted if I was watering too much or too little. The watering system took care of that for me. All I had to do was remember to fill up the reservoir in the morning.

5 Star Review   By Dennis on Home Depot - Aug 14, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

We used the City Pickers planter for three cherry tomato plants. It is working well and the tomatoes taste great. I like that I can turn the planter easily every couple of days to keep the sunlight even. The watering tube and overflow holes let you know that the plants are getting enough water and are not being overwatered. I plan to buy several more City Pickers planters for next summer.

Great for anyone who has a "Brown Thumb" - makes growing plants easy!!
5 Star Review   By gldcoastgirl on Home Depot - Jul 24, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This is a great sub-irrigation box similar to an Earthbox. The color was the standard plastic terracotta orange, but I spraypainted the outside of mine to look more polished. You will need to separately purchase ProMix, Dolomite (aka hydrated lime) and a pellet type of fertilizer to set this box up - so it would have been helpful if the City Pickers box stated these other items needed clearly on the exterior packaging instead of in the interior instructions. I would also recommend laying a small piece of garden fabric over the reservoir before covering it with soil, to prevent the roots from growing down into the water reservoir. The box has made watering of my vegetables easy, even in this super hot and dry weather. And my tomatoes and green peppers are absolutely thriving in my City Picker box - twice as much as my plants that are in standard pots. The only things that could make this box better would be (1) if Home Depot would offer a trellis system option similar to the Earthbox trellis and (2) if there was a way to purchase replacement plastic covers for next year when I re-use these boxes. Very happy with this purchase and highly recommended to anyone with a brown thumb - it makes vegetable gardening easy!

5 Star Review   By YoScho on Home Depot - Jul 21, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

We moved to a new home and planted a tomato. It was not doing so well, maybe depleted soil. I was looking for a raised garden bed so I could also keep critters out. I came across the City Picker and after reading reviews immediately ordered one for store pick up. My tomato plant is doing outstanding now and I have been eating tomatoes sooner than the neighbors even with this drought! My husband is already thinking of buying another one next year and planting more items. It is so easy to move around the deck to make sure the plant gets enough sunlight.

5 Star Review   By Gene on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Deer were eating my tomatoes and other plants. I bought three city pickers last year and put them on my deck. They worked great. I needed another one but the Home depot store didn't have one so I ordered it on-line. We have tomatoes, egg plants, bannana pepers, water mellon and cantalopes. They are great!

The best gardening product ever!!
5 Star Review   By Mick on Home Depot - Jul 3, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I have a lot of garden space available, so I wasn't sure if this was the right product for me. However, the results I've gotten from using it, and the ease of use has prompted me to buy two more. As an experiment I planted 8 vegetable plants in the Patio Garden Kit, and the same 8 plants in a regular pot. The vegetables in the Patio Kit are giant and thriving while the plants in the regular pots are sad looking and shriveled, even though I water and fertilize them regularly . The Patio Garden Kit gives the perfect amount of water so I can't over or under water. It's idiot proof, and perfect if you don't have a green thumb. You can also roll it in our out of the sun easily which is great.

4 Star Review   By EEBawby on Home Depot - Jun 19, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

We bought two City Pickers as gifts for our son and grandson. We had a little trouble finding the exact materials that the instructions called for, but we eventually found them. Also, it was a bit expensive by the time you bought the container, the potting mix, the fertilizer, the dolomite and finally the plants. So far, they are great. We put tomatoes in one and pumpkin starts in the other, but it is too soon to tell about the yield.

5 Star Review   Home Depot    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I wanted to grow my own lettuce and tomatoes, but am forgetful about watering and hate weeding! I bought two of these, and planted 6 lettuce plants in one and 3 roma tomato plants in the other, and they're doing great! I made sure to follow their directions about using potting mix (not "soil"), dolomite, and fertilizer. I had plants left over, so I planted them in the ground as a comparison (kind of like a science project). The container plants are doing MUCH better. I'll be adding a couple more next year for sure!

5 Star Review   By stef on Home Depot - May 25, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This thing rocks!!! I was at first skeptical after reading the instruction and needing lime. I bought 2. In one, I spent money on fancy soil. One I didn't. Didn't use the cover and my growth in both is insane. I planted 4 zucchini plants the same day. 3 in ground, the one in planter and the difference is astonishing. I AM A BELIEVER

I ordered two and they are nice looking and very functional. They arrived in just a few days. We have to grow everything on our deck because we have deer that eat anything that grows. I have planted cherry tomato plants, bell peppers, cilantro and several other herbs. It all fits. Very easy to put together, basically just put on the casters.

Great Planter...Wish it had a staking system
5 Star Review   By Kade6767 on Home Depot - May 16, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I picked this up at my local store about two weeks ago. I put two tomato plants in that I had started from seed. I love the fact that you water it once, maybe twice a week and with the cover the soil stays perfectly moist. My plants were very small when I planted them and I use Foxfarm Ocean Forest soil and they have been growing amazingly fast! Being able to wheel it under cover in case of rain is an added plus. I only wish it had a matching staking system that you could get. I've not seen one. But, I'm sure I can just put my own together. Either way, this is the best planter for veggies!

Love it!
5 Star Review   By Doityourselfgirl on Home Depot - May 15, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This is great for beginner gardeners or in small spaces. Love that it's somewhat self-watering so that the plants get water they need in the AZ heat. I plan on getting another one for herbs.

Function and Easy to Move
4 Star Review   By PlantGuy on Home Depot - May 15, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Basically a good planter box and the plants have really taken to it. Just keep in mind the installation of the wheels into their slot can be difficult and the use of a hammer will be needed. The clips that hold the plastic cover are fairly non-functional and their grip is not strong enough to secure the cover.

Almost Perfect
5 Star Review   By Dave on Home Depot - May 13, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This is very similar to an Earthbox and works on essentially the same principle. I own two of these and they are "almost" perfect with one small design flaw to be aware of. The problem is that the drain holes on the sides of the box are too small and they can become clogged up with dirt that manages to work its way into the bottom of the container. My advice is to drill a larger drain hole right through where the original holes are. The Earthbox has VERY large drain holes and water gushes from them to avoid over watering. I discovered the issue with the City Pickers boxes after some strawberries started wilting due to apparent over watering. I did a little investigation and sure enough, the drain hole was completely clogged and the box was practically filled with water. I drilled holes next to the original hole and water GUSHED from them. I will buy more of these in the future but be sure to drill out the overflow hole to make it larger.

This thing really works! I bought three and I think I'm about to go get some more! It's half of the cost of all the other self watering planters out there, and this is bigger and has wheels! GET THIS ! You will not regret it!!!

Love It, Love It, ABSOLUTLEY LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
5 Star Review   By GoldenIslesGrowerGirl on Home Depot - Apr 24, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Absolutley Love this Product!!! Bought one for my family and one for my Father-In-Law, who used to garden regularly but lost his eyesight a few years ago, leaving him totally blind, and hasnt been able to garden. But thanks to the City Picker he has been having a blast doing what he once loved to do. With regular watering, you wont be let down, I Promise... My only complaint is that the mulch cover that came with the planters was too small to fit the container, so we didnt use them. This is probably better in the long run because the planter is able to accept rainfall also. But other than that little snafu we are thoroughly enjoying our planter. I may have crowded ours but you wouldnt ever know it by the looks of the plants and the amount of blooms and fruit that are coming in on them. Mine was planted with 4 "Roma" Tomato plants and 3 "Straight Eight" Cucumber plants and all are thriving and fruiting very, very well. I would recommend this especially for an older person who loved to grow and cant handle a large garden anymore or a person with a disability because it is so easy and simple to take care of. But anyone who likes growing should give it a shot.

Great Product
5 Star Review   By WatchOne on Home Depot - Apr 19, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I purchased this planter for my daughter to grow tomatos and peppers last year. The plants grew so large and produced so many fruits and vegetables that I will be buying another one this year. We love this planter. It's easy to manage and watering is no problem. The instructions are very easy to use.

Amazing product holds 3 gallons of water in resivoir.... You dont have to water everyday because it has the water to drink from underneith. I didnt use the cover... I figured its better to let it get rain water aswell.

Ideal for TOMATOES!
5 Star Review   By caelb1 on Home Depot - Mar 20, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Grew some huge tomatoe bushes in this grow box last year. At first I thought it would not have the depth to grow really deep roots but my plants grew over 5 feet and produced deep into fall. Well thought out and the directions and included shopping list were ideal - Very pleased. I like these boxes over cedar plank raised garden beds which are more permament; these are so easily moved around to another area and if I move i can take them with me. I will be buying more to expand my garden and buying some for family..

happy customer
4 Star Review   By DesertGardener on Home Depot - Feb 14, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I live in one of the most difficult of gardening climates. Sunset Zone "2222,". I call it for too hot, too cold, too dry, too windy.. Growing veggies is a battle against the elements. I hope the Pickers will give me an edge in at least one area. I have one box planted in peas and one planted in lettuce and I plan to roll them in and out until the weather warms a bit. I love that they come with casters! I also like the square design. The assembly instructions were easy to follow. The only caution I would offer is to make sure you end up with the water-in tube and the overflow hole on the SAME side of the planter, otherwise it will be difficult to tell when you have added enough water. I like being able to purchase my own potting mix components and mix it up in the planters. As a caution to new users, DO NOT USE POTTING SOIL. It is also very important to pack the soil more tightly in the wicking corners than in the rest of the box or your box won't irrigate properly. So far so good. The negatives: A. I would like a color choice. I think the dark green may hold too much heat in the summer. B. I would also have liked a reversible mulch cover. I ended up using a white garbage bag for the lettuce bed, so that the tender roots won't bake. C. The units do not have a way of attaching a trellis for vining crops, but I am sure I will be able to work something out. I look forward to seeing reports from users who have been through a whole season cropping up in the various gardening discussion groups. I hope everyone is as happy with the planters as I anticipate that I will be.

Perfit Fit
5 Star Review   By planterpablo on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I ordered two of these for a small city patio and it fits perfect. The casters help for easy mobility and the setup booklet is very helpful even recommending the soil and fertilizer types. Maybe it was my computer screen, but the actual containers surprisingly looked more green and not dark gray/green. The container feels heavy duty, but not heavy to move and is made in the good US of A. Well designed for that urban farmer/gardener.

great and already growing tomatoes in one -- peppers and basil in one and oriental sweet potatoes in one -- am really happy with them--you put a lot of water in bottom at first when setting up and so far only put water in once after and have gotten 6 tomoatoes from the plants

This Little Box is Fantastic
5 Star Review   By VegetableBoxLady on Home Depot - Sep 27, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I grew tomatoes in two of these boxes this summer. I was able to keep them on my upper deck, away from the varmints that like to steal the fruit and eat the leaves. Compared to a giant pot, the City Pickers box resulted in less heat fatigue because of its unique watering system. It was also nice not to have to fertilize after the initial planting. I liked my boxes so well, I bought three more of them.

Great price for a self-watering system!
4 Star Review   By Ellie on Home Depot - Sep 10, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

My mom bought me one of these at first, to encourage a little bit of veggie gardening in my third floor balcony apartment. After she told me the price and I compared it to similar systems, I bought two more! The price can't be beat unless you make your own. The plants we have grown have done pretty well (tomatoes cucumbers, snap beans, a "fairy eggplant" and a baby bell pepper) and the self watering system is great for apartment dwellers. It holds about 2-3 gallons of water at a time, which can sustain a few small plants for a few days, or a huge thirsty tomato for one. The instructions that came with the kit were not very helpful, but fortunately I also got the book "The Vegetable Gardener's Container Bible" by Edward C. Smith. It is a must-have if you are serious about container gardening and being successful. The biggest drawback about this or probably any veggie-container gardening system is the lack of trellising. One of our tomato plants (supposed to be a bush early girl-determinate and great for containers but not behaving as advertised) has become huge and pretty unruly (but full tomatoes:). A stake will not hold well due to the shallow nature of a container. So we have a complicated system of twine tying the plant to our railing. Not pretty, but effective. I recommend researching small varieties of plants (like tiny tim tomatoes, fairy eggplant, or baby bell pepper) and growing 3 or 4 of those in one container, or sticking to one "regular" variety in a container and building some sort of trellis that is supported outside of the container. Overall, it is a decent system that I recommend more for those without yards, and who are willing to do a little research on the process

Good watering system and the wheels worked fine on the wood deck.
4 Star Review   By Mel1958 on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I purchased this for my mom, she's lost interest in a full size garden. The size is just right for 3 tomato plants. She's harvesting tomatoes right now and can't believe the quantity and size. I would have given it a 5 star rating, if it had a cage, otherwise a good product.

Greatest Things
5 Star Review   By Nikki on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I bought three of these and then had to buy a fourth, I love them. I put them up on our roof deck. Have huge tomato plants, pepper, loads of lettuce and now red cabbage and cauliflower. They work great and you can't beat the price. Most places charge a lot more for the same type of thing.

Exactly what we needed!
5 Star Review   By onetulip on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Because of all the trees in our yard, we needed to be able to follow the sun to grow some tomatoes. The Garden Kit is sturdy and well made. We rolled it back and forth on our deck all summer and had real tomatoes to eat.

Great for basil, problem with tomatoes
3 Star Review   By REVsandiego on Home Depot - Aug 1, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Wow! My basil is growing amazingly well. I make pesto all the time. Unfortunately, the tomatoes are literally flopping over, even though I used a compact 'patio'. This product doesn't have a staking accessory. Has anyone had success staking their tomatoes in the city picker? Also - beware overplanting in the box. One tomato per box, with no other plants, would have been a better choice.

Amazing Product
5 Star Review   By nc4nowmom on Home Depot - Jun 16, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I purchased this assuming that anything I planted would die a slow death as I definitely do not have a green thumb. Directions were precise and I followed them exactly as written. I planted tomatoes, cucumbers and basil. I am eating fresh cucumbers every day and the tomatoes are just starting to turn. I have been making pesto with the beautiful basil that I am growing as well. What a fabulous product! It is on my patio outside my kitchen which is above ground so no risk of animals getting to anything. I recommend this 1000% !!!

CITY PICKERS **ROCKS**
5 Star Review   By 4KidsMomDFWTexas on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

So far so GOOD! I bought these when they had free shipping and WHAT A DEAL!!! This thing is a lot of "raised bed planter" for the money! This is the best price for a self watering raised planter I've seen! My veggie plants love it even more than I do, which is hard to imagine! YOU WON'T BE SORRY!!!

I have an amazing garden growing in my City Pickers!
4 Star Review   By UrbanGardener on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I bought 2 city pickers about 1 1/2 months ago, one for myself and a second for a family member. A week later, I set up one for myself, following the instructions exactly. I went on to add the mulch cover, and it was much too small so I used the cover from the second. The next day, I called their 800 number (on instruction leaflet, gave them my address. Within in days I had a replacement cover. Their customer service is excellent. The cheap mulch cover is the reason I gave it 4 stars. My garden? I have the most beautiful tomato plants, three cucumber vines, and a pea vine that are growing amazingly. Additionally, I only need to water apx. once per week. Much cheaper and larger than the Earth Box!

Excellent Value for the Money and made in USA
4 Star Review   By simplelifer on Home Depot - May 28, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I have been gardening in self-watering containers for years, and wanted to expand. I was thrilled when I discovered these, and ordered six. They were delivered to my doorstep free (fantastic since we are 100 miles from the nearest store). I have not used the plastic covers yet as I am growing from seed so far, but will be transplanting pepper seedlings soon when I plan to try the covers. They are a good size; I recommend moving them into place before adding water (they become heavy). The included casters are a big plus if one has them on a flat surface such as a deck. I have recommended these to several friends and relatives already.

Aeration screen won't fit, mulch cover way too small
2 Star Review   By Maggie2011OC on Home Depot - May 28, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The aeration screen doesn't fit well into the box. I had to keep one side higher than the other. Can't push all the way to where it supposed to be. Also the mulch cover is too small. I had to rip it. So it ended up only covering part of the planter. I bought two of them. It's ok for what I paid for ($20.99 each). One aeration screen fit well. Both mulch covers are small. On the 2nd one I used garbage bag as the cover. Worked better, looked ugly...

I purchased two, I just wanted a small garden with a few veggies. This is a project for me and my children to do. I wanted them to experience growing their own veggie and the City Pickers are perfect for that. I have them sitting on my deck and every morning they can see the progress. Very excited about them and would recommend and did recommend to people!

Recently saw a home made version of this idea and jumped when Home Depot had this at a great price with free shipping. Am looking forward to growing wonderful vegetables and herbs in these containers. Once change from recommended dolomite in the soil mixture, Am going to use peat moss instead. Product is sturdy and very easy to assemble. Shipping was great and quick, plus free the weekend I ordered.

Good planter for the price.
3 Star Review   By MamaTK on Home Depot - May 10, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This self watering planter is good for those on a budget. (I paid $20.99). It does the job of keeping your plants watered. The material for the planter is not as sturdy as some, but it is good. The mulch plastic top is really cheap and requires clips to help it stay on. I do not know where to find replacements once the growing season is done. I have looked on the company's website and haven't found a place to order any. Again, good for those who want a self watering planter, but don't want to spend a lot.

Mobile Planter
4 Star Review   By Gardenwitch on Home Depot - May 2, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This type of planter is great as I can move it around my deck to follow the sun. Since deer are a problem in my area and the fenced back yard is mostly in the shade, being able to move this planter to take advantage of the sunlight is great. I have vegetables and flowers growing in the one now and did not have any problems putting it together. I am thinking of getting a second one. Mentioned this planter to a friend and she got them for her patio.

City Pickers a great planter!
5 Star Review   By sailbeach on Home Depot - Mar 21, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The planter is fantastic with all growing plants... The watering system and ease of movement with its wheels, allows you to bring it indoors when the weather gets cold. This allows you to keep harvesting your vegetables year round. Never a problem with weeding or over watering, gives you very healthy plants and tasty vegetables. Highly recommended!
