Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Canary I love this flower box!
This coco box is beautiful. Goes perfect with any fence or porch style. Plants stay moist in its straw like pot. I will buy a few more for the back and side of my house too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RAL1 Pretty wrought iron window box planter
I really like this wrought iron window box with coco liner. It is a perfect depth and length for my outdoor deck railing. The only problem is I can't hang it with the bracket that is included because the bracket doesn't adjust wide enough to accommodate my top rail. It will fit up to a 2x5 inch railing but not a 7 inch top rail which is what mine is. I'm going to have to figure out how to extend the bracket so that I can hang the planter. It seems to be of good, heavy metal and should hold up at least a couple of seasons in the outdoor environment but I've noticed a bit of rust forming on the wing nut of the bracket.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jcjc nice window box
we found the product very nice and pretty, well made and price was reasonable, but a bit high. the only problem we had was that the patio boards, which was already built, did not measure so the hangers could go between them.my husband made a wire hanger to hang them with. It would be nice if the hangers could slide to different lengths so this would not happen. I almost took them back for this reason, but my husband insisted on making the hangers and keeping them. The only issue with this is that the wire can be seen on the inside of the patio. tried them on the windows first, but with the type windows we have the window would not have closed all the way down.
overall, a nice product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gardener Really nice planter
I needed one more planter for my deck. It was easy to mount and the perfect size for my porch. The planter came with the straw weave insert so you do not need to use a plastic insert.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gardener Great product, great price
These wrought iron window boxes are fairly well made. I bought four of these and two of the mounting screws were a bit difficult to use at first due to burrs. The product label states that this has a waterproof liner which is actually a sheet of clear plastic and a coco liner. After filling my baskets with soil and plants I watered and then punched four small holes in the bottom of the liner using a toothpick to allow some water runoff. Plants don't do well with the roots standing in water. I used the four side-by-side along an outdoor porch railing and filled with red, white and blue petunias. This looks nice right now but will make a patriotic statement on July 4th! Thank you, Home Depot, for almost always having the products I need and want.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PittsburghReviewer Great on our deck - beautiful flowers all year long!
Very easy to assemble and water. Flowers looked bright and vibrant all year and required less water. Was concerned going into this year that we wouldn't be able to find a new liner for the product, but thanks to Home Depot's response below, I was able to purchase replacement liners and look forward to using it again this year.
We have it on our deck railing and had no issues with it not being secure.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SBell Beautiful looking
I really hate to rain on anyone's garden parade, but I didn't have good luck with these. It's nice quality, and they look good, until the birds show up. They like to pull out the coco fibers for their nests (I'm assuming, unless it was personal). After you get your plants in they stop showing up, either because they have finished their nests, or satisfied with the new "harried" look they've given them.
OK, so unless the coco baskets come with a liner, the water goes straight through. So you probably have to water everyday in the middle summer months. The water that drains is not the clear waterfall you are imagining.
After my second year the soil started to seep through the coco fibers. This was after I lined it. Suggestion; don't use grocery-store trash sacks for this. Contrary to popular belief, they DO disintegrate before 1,000 years.
Incredibly, mine are still up. I'm considering spaying the exteriors with a heavy-duty water repellant.
