Our New Self-Watering Downtown Planters!!

In 2018, our club purchased self-watering planters for the downtown area. Each planter can hold up to 18 gallons of water which is then available to the plantings on a continuous basis. The water supply needs to be replenished on a regular basis ranging from about 1 week in extremely hot summer weather to 2 weeks during early spring and fall. Previously, our members had to water planters every day or so in extremely hot weather. Getting the 4 - 6 gallons of water to each planter was not an easy task! The new planters are easier to maintain and provide the water needed to keep the plants looking their best.
