What potting soil is recommended? I have used regular bagged soil (not moisture control) and hav...

Asked by FLnative March 25, 2021

Answers

So far, I used regular potting soil. But then, I am NOT using the self-watering feature because I just rather decide on my own watering schedule. So, I drilled 4 half-inch round holes in each of the two planters I bought, and I made sure I could see daylight through the holes. Then I filled just the bottom quarter of the planters with bagged mulch to provide for more drainage before filling them to the top with regular potting soil. (The popular one). My plants seem to be doing well. But I'll know more later in the year. I only just purchased the planters about 2 weeks ago.

Hi there! This planter unfortunately does not have an internal tray. If you are wanting a planter with the tray that can be flipped, our tall planters have that feature. If you are interested in the Fairfield collection, we have a Fairfield 28" Tall Planter with a removable tray that you can look into. If you have any other questions please email us at customerservice@gomayne.com and we will be happy to find you the planter that works best for your outdoor space!

Can these planters be painted?

Asked by PH August 27, 2020
1
Answer

We do not recommend painting your item Our products are manufactured from polyethylene, which is an oil-based plastic. We have found that paint typically does not adhere to it very well; it tends to peel and flake off over time. There is paint on the market that is called “Fusion for Plastic” made by Krylon, which some of our customers have used with success. If you do choose to paint your product, we recommend testing on a small unvisible portion before painting the entire product. Please be advised that painted products cannot be returned and that painting the product will also void the warranty.

Am 5 7 in height they up to my knee I had buy 3 off them this summer would be 3 years they still look great Will warn you took alot of dirt to full up them

16 gallon resevior sounds helpful in summer. How do you drain without killing perennial plant during a chicago winter hits and the resevior cracks?

Asked by FAM November 15, 2018
1
Answer

The durable polyethylene that Mayne products are made from holds up extremely well in all types of weather conditions, so they can be left outside during the winter months. Just be sure that your planters are draining properly and remove as much water from them as possible but tilting them slightly towards the overflow drain hole. There will always be some left in the reservoir; that is fine. Our double-walled design will allow room for the water to expand during freezing so there is no risk of cracking.

Can the reservoir be removed so that the whole pot can be used for soil?

Asked by JEM September 21, 2018
3
Answers

No. The walls of the planter are the reservoir. You pack the dirt in the inner wells that soak up the water to the plants. It is important to water in the plants so the water from the top reaches the water from the bottom.

Can you use these to plant strawberries?

The product arrived very quickly. Got the flowers planted and was filling the reservoir and kept hearing water. When I looked in the front the water was pouring out as quick as I was putting it in. It must have been a bad injection point and it opened up.

Response from Mayne Product ExpertJun 22, 2020
We're very sorry to hear that you experienced difficulty with your Mayne Planter. This planter does have a pre-drilled 1/4" drain hole on one side located 4" above ground level. This overflow hole ensures that the planter does not retain too much excess water and makes sure that your plants do not become over-watered or flooded. If the water was coming out of a location other than this, please feel free to send us photos to customerservice@gomayne.com and we will be happy to assist you with a resolution.

Looks beautiful and is very sturdy while still being light. Even full of dirt we are able to move it without great effort. Love the self watering feature to keep our plants moist. We have two on our deck and are utilizing them as herb gardens. I am sure they would look even classier with flowers in them! The clay color we chose is a beautiful off white. Would buy again and highly recommend!

Great product. I am not sure how well the watering system works...we will see next summer. They are very sturdy and I really like the appearance. My only complaint is the recommendation to drill a 3/4" hole to fill the watering system -- the caps that are included are too small for the hole and blow away when the wind blows. Excellent customer service!
