    Comments about UncommonGoods Weekend Plant Feeders:

    I gave this as a gift to my mother-in-law so her outdoor hanging baskets can remain well-watered, even when she goes away for the weekends, as she often does now that she's an empty nester.

    She hasn't used it yet, but it arrived well-packaged, and she was delighted to receive it.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Weekend Plant Feeders:

        Ordered two of the owls for plants in my kitchen. They are adorable, however, I wish the part that sticks out of the soil was glazed. In the winter, when the relative humidity in our house was low, I felt like the water was evaporating out of the top as well as into the soil. I was filling it daily. I think glazing would reduce the evaporation.
