Rated 2 out of 5 by Blue60 Ok in theory
I forgot to write a review when these came a few weeks ago but I am glad I did as I can now write an informed review. When the pots arrived I liked the colour (Blue Grey) and the style of the pots and the idea behind them however they are okay in theory but not in practice. I chose to put mine outside so my husband screwed the plates to the wall and then attached the pots. After two weeks (with nothing inside them) I found them lying on the ground because most of the very strong magnets at the bottom of each pot had dislodged themselves so my husband glued the magnets back into the sockets with, I think, super glue. Thinking job done how wrong we were as a short time later (still nothing in the pots) they fell off again, so this time my husband has used something stronger to glue the magnets back into place and so far so good. However, not knowing how long they will stay on the wall I have still not planted anything in them. The idea behind these little pots for perhaps growing herbs, succulents or small trailing flowers is great as they do liven up a wall etc., but as another reviewer said the designers need to go back to the drawing board. A much better idea would be to hook them on the wall and then hopefully they will stay put. Therefore I have only given 2 stars for this product which are for the colour and the design of the pots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Docflash Initial problems but now resolved
Bought when first aired. Have been great attached to our metal shed until today when one magnet fell out and the pot fell. Quite solid so did not break. My wife loves these pots so I contacted the manufacturer for a replacement magnet. They responded immediately and the problem is being resolved. Great customer service .

loved the idea of these pots and on arrival one pot had a magnet out so i glued it in and placed the metal plates on my shed and planted just little herbs in the pots , well one pot lasted one hour and then fell off to e ground and the one i repared the other 2 magnets became unattached and it also,fell off over night the third one was going well untill it rained and it had a watering and it then fell off now i have 3 metal,plated screwed to my lovely shed that i cant remove or i will be left with ugly holes and pots with half the magnets missing and no where to fit them . a poor designed product and poor manufacturing ,

I have given this product 2 stars , not because of the design but because of how they could be . As previous reviews I encountered the same problems with magnets falling out and plants on the ground , however adjustments to the fixtures on theses pots would result in very attractive containers . I did send both my sets back but in hindsight wish I'd kept them and had my other half screw them to the shed . May well reorder . Maybe manufactures need to go back to the drawing board and learn from reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanW Great buy
I've ordered these pots for my wife's birthday and she loves them! Plants are already on our fridge door and kitchen hub. Magnets seem very strong and solid. Small watering funnel which comes with pots, is very good idea.
Planning to buy few more for our garden.

QVC replaced the 1st set of pots as the magnets
kept falling out of there holes and they could not take the weight of the compost and plug plants.
The second set is no better I found
two pots on the ground it had rained most of the night and they could not take the extra weight..
I have decided to keep this set but
will screw them directly to the wood a good idea
on paper but not in practice

Day 1, first problem was the planters slide down the metal plates. Fixed by adding a screw underneath for additional support.
Day 3, magnets fallen out of all the planters, had to solve now by drilling big hole in back of planter to hook over a screw.
No drainage holes as well so considering adding some of those as well.
If I had not filled with plants these would have been returned.

These little planters are lovely but I've encountered a problem. I fixed mine to the fencing (well my son did ) and put the plants in on Wednesday all was well until the rain last night and the magnets came away from the planter and the one fell to the floor in the night due to the weight of it as there is no drainage. The other 2 also have magnets that have come away so I've glued them and going to see what happens. If this doesn't work think I'll drill holes to match the plate and screw them back up. Didn't want to send them back but I've let QVC know about my dilemma and they were very good and thanked me for the feedback.
