I have a confession to make. While in theory I love plants and gardening … in reality my thumb is rather more black than green. Correcting this is one of my resolutions for 2011 but I might need a little help. Enter the self-watering planter! These containers feature water reservoirs that keep plants supplied with the right amount of moisture. Unfortunately, a lot of self-watering systems leave something to be desired in the realm of aesthetics, but I managed to find a few stylish solutions. Let me know if you have any other suggestions!
