2. Pop Up Planter
Create maximum impact in your garden by adding height to displays and borders with this pop up planter. Available in green or grey, it’s also a great way for you to move plants around, especially if you want to give them plenty of light throughout the day.
3. Modular Raised Bed
Introducing a microclimate for plants to help the formation of roots, this raised plant bed is perfect for making sure your plants have all the support they need to flower and remain healthy. To really make the most of the raised bed, put several beds together to create an impressive, colourful display.
4. Hose Carrier
Everyone has issues keeping their hose pipe neat and tidy, but thanks to this hose carrier, watering the plants will be stress-free forever more! With a simple handle and lightweight design, the carrier can be unravelled as you water – you can even mount it on the wall for added ease and convenience!
5. Angled Raised Bed
Another product that helps to make the most of the space you have is this fabulous angled raised bed. If you’re in an area that only has limited natural light, the raised bed allows for your plants, herbs and vegetables to be angled towards the sun. Styled like a Victorian wall farm, it allows you to produce stunning floral plants in the main unit whilst growing larger produce from the bag in the base.
6. Plant Pot Mover
This fully-adjustable plant pot mover makes light work of transporting heavy plant pots around your garden. Simply wrap the strap around the plant pot and carry using the two handles (or share the load with another person). Usable for pots up to 45cm in diameter, its tough, hard-wearing polyester construction makes it perfect for using all year round.
7. Hanging Basket Reservoir
Make watering your hanging baskets easy with this innovative hanging basket reservoir! All you need to do is bury the special reservoir in the middle of your hanging basket before filling the basket with your favourite compost and plants. Fill the reservoir up with water, then it will slowly release water into the hanging basket, helping to stop your plants from becoming dehydrated and saving you time.
8. Reservoir Balls
These clever hydroballs create a steady water source for your plants as they slowly release water (when they’re placed inside the included waterproof liners). Or, to aid aeration and drainage, just plant them without the liners. Perfect for any planter size, they’ll keep your plants looking luscious for longer!
