The Orto Rustic self-watering planter box includes a wicking bed installed inside that feeds your plants the perfect amount of water from below.
The water reservoir is a 5mm thick food-grade plastic tub fitted with an outlet at the base that controls water levels and allows for easy draining when required.
The planter box is made locally from plantation grown pine. The outside of the box is treated with premium grade decking oil while the inside is fitted with food grade plastic liner. Soil or water does not come into contact with the timber. This is our simple way to increase longevity using affordable and readily available materials without using chemical treatments.

Rotation moulded puncture-proof water reservoir
Tank outlet overflow water level checking system
Inlet pipes and all plumbing
