Our Flower Boxes Come with Endless Possibilities
Gardeners have long cherished flower boxes for their versatility. These remarkable planters offer endless possibilities for various purposes. They come in so many styles that you can use them virtually anywhere.

- Use them as flower window boxes to enhance your home's curb appeal

Contrary to their name, flower boxes aren't limited to only flowers. They can serve as excellent planters for a wide range of vegetation. Imagine using them as vegetable planters, growing your favorite herbs, or experimenting with diverse, colorful blooms.
Trailing plants such as ivy, petunias, vinca, and sweet potato vines bring depth and visual appeal to flower boxes. At the same time, annuals like salvia, geraniums, coleus, zinnia, and begonias make delightful additions.
And let's not forget the beauty of perennials and even some dwarf conifers that can thrive in these versatile planters.

With Self-Watering Flower Boxes You Have Fewer Worries
As if the benefits of our flower boxes weren't already impressive enough, we've taken it a step further by incorporating a self-watering system. Each flower box has a sub-irrigated reservoir at the bottom, ensuring your plants receive a consistent water supply.
Say goodbye to the concerns of underwatering your precious plants and hello to healthier and vibrant foliage. Self-watering flower boxes offer an assortment of benefits to gardeners.
- Optimal Hydration: Self-watering planters provide plants with the right amount of water they need when they need it. The built-in reservoir or water storage system allows for controlled water distribution, preventing underwater and overwatering. You'll also have to water less often.
- Optimal Soil Moisture: The reservoir system slowly releases water as the plant's roots absorb moisture, ensuring a steady water supply without waterlogging the soil. This consistent moisture balance promotes healthy root development and reduces the risk of root diseases caused by inconsistent watering practices.
- Optimal Growth: By providing consistent moisture and reducing plant stress, self-watering flower boxes create optimal plant growth conditions. With a steady water supply and nutrients, plants can focus on healthy root development, foliage growth, and flowering. This leads to more vigorous, vibrant plants with increased resistance to environmental stressors.
- Optimal Time Savings: With self-watering planters, you can say goodbye to manually watering your plants. Just think. You can go away for the weekend without worrying about your plants getting watered. Enjoy lush, thriving plants with less work and time.
Ample Space for Lush Growth
Our flower boxes provide ample space for your plants to flourish. With a generous depth of nearly seven inches, these self-watering flower boxes offer abundant room for root development. That ensures your plants receive the nutrients they need to thrive.
That depth adds to their endless growing possibilities.
Use one traditionally by planting your favorite annuals like geraniums, marigolds, zinnias, or dahlias. Or use a flower box for more practical uses, like growing herbs and vegetables. Imagine having basil, thyme, oregano, or cilantro at your fingertips.
We offer two length options – 14-1/2 or 21-1/2 inches – allowing you to choose the size that suits your gardening ambitions. The larger flower box version comfortably accommodates four to six plants, depending on their sizes and varieties.
So you can easily use the thriller-filler-spiller approach when planting your box. Use tall plants like aster or coneflower to add bursts of color, followed by shorter plants to add depth to your planter. Finally, add even more depth with trailing vines like creeping jenny, vinca, or ivy.
The versatility of our flower boxes lets you unleash your creativity by selecting a combination of plants with different colors and textures. Or create a stunning mass display using a single plant type.
Quality Resin Planters That Withstand Nature
Our self-watering flower boxes use Artstone materials. Resin and stone combine to create a lightweight yet incredibly durable planter. They'll last infinitely longer than imported plastic flower boxes. And they won't rot like wood planters or rust like metal planters.
Instead, you'll enjoy these flower boxes for years on end, whether you use them indoors or outdoors. They're frost-resistant, waterproof, and UV-resistant, so you won't have to worry about storing them over the winter. Resin planters offer a host of advantages over other container types.
Resin planters withstand the elements. Whether it's scorching heat, freezing temperatures, or heavy rainfall, these planters resist fading, cracking, and weather-related damage.
Plus, resin planters won't deteriorate, rot, rust, or warp, unlike other planters, ensuring that your investment lasts for years. So you can enjoy a beautiful garden all year round without worrying about their resilience in different weather conditions.
Despite that durability, resin planters are lightweight. So you can move them with ease. That allows you to experiment with different garden layouts and effortlessly adapt to changing sunlight or design preferences.
Create a Space You'll Love with Self-Watering Flower Boxes
No matter how you use them, our flower boxes will highlight any space from your deck to a front porch. The unique marbled look of these planters makes them attractive by themself. But add a mix of colorful plants, and the show really begins.
And with their self-watering feature, these planters will create a lush garden clockwork. They also pair nicely with our other Artstone self-watering planters. Like all Root & Vessel products, our flower boxes have a one-year guarantee.
How should I pot my plant?
Add a small amount of perlite medium on top of the Water-Minder area. Finish filling the planter to the planter’s rim with a light to medium weight potting mix. Routinely adding plant food, according to plant’s directions, will dramatically increase the health, beauty and fullness of the plants in your Ella Flower Box.
What is the Ella Flower Box made of?
The Ella Flower Box is constructed from Artstone material, which is a proprietary blend of resin, colorant, and crushed limestone. The result is a durable, weather-resistant planter that has a beautiful, marbled look throughout the material. Unlike other planters on the market with a painted finish, Artstone resin planters will never lose their pattern and can be used both indoors or outside.
Is the Ella Flower Box self-watering?
Yes! The Ella Flower Box has a built-in self-watering system called the Water-Minder. This removable insert creates a sub-irrigated reservoir at the bottom of the planter that allows water to seep through the screen. Your plants then absorb the water as needed.
How does the Water-Minder prevent overwatering & underwatering?
The Water-Minder self-watering feature prevents overwatering and underwatering as long as the drainage plug on the bottom of the planter is removed. This is because the water level will always drop to the top of the overflow drain. Your plant will then absorb the water as needed.
If you're worried about underwatering and/or if it's hard to tell if the plant is dry, then we recommend watering frequently to avoid any chance of underwatering. That ensures there is always water available in the reservoir. Just make sure the drainage plug is removed so that the water does not overfill the reservoir, potentially causing watering-logging and root-rot.
Do I need a saucer when using the planter indoors?
A saucer is not needed when using our planters indoors unless you decide to remove the drainage plug from the bottom of the planter. The only downside to keeping the drainage plug in is that you have to be mindful of overwatering. That is because with the drainage plug left in, any excess water will no longer automatically drop to the top of the overflow drain.
Does the Ella Flower Box have drainage holes?
There is a removable drainage plug on the bottom of the planter. This allows the water level to drop to the top of the overflow drain.
When using the planter outdoors, remove the drainage plug to prevent water-logging and root-rot.
How is this an eco-friendly planter?
How much does the Ella Flower Box weigh?
The weight varies by size as follows:
- 14½-Inch: 2.6 lbs.
- 21½-Inch: 3.8 lbs.
Where is the Ella Flower Box manufactured?
The Ella Flower Box is manufactured and imported from our partner in Malaysia.
