This salad planter will accommodate 37 litres of compost for growing a wide range of vegetable crops. Feeder mats pull water from the reservoir, keeping the compost suitably moist. Dimensions: 55x55x25cm depth (22x22x10in).
With a good surface area, this planter offers a lot of growing options, including radish, spring onion, lettuce, chard, garlic or strawberry. We found the feeder mats very effective at keeping the soil suitably moist. At an extra cost, you can turn it into a mini-greenhouse with a transparent cover. We liked the versatility of this, especially with the cover option.

This freestanding, 40-litre Self Watering Grow Table includes a seven-litre water storage reservoir, inner modular plant dividers, a ventilated protective bell cover and a lower storage shelf. Measures 81x39x100cm high (32x15x39in).

PRODUCT CODE: GPL-321
A very well-designed growing table, easy to assemble. We liked the versatility of this. It can be used for cut-and-come-again salad leaves, herbs and, as an unheated propagator, for starting off a range of vegetable seeds. Easy to fill with water and has a useful gauge for checking water level.
NEW PLANT HALOS
Plant halos provide more depth to ensure a robust root system and can be placed on top of growing bags or directly on the soil. They have a ready-made water and feed reservoir and come with wigwam clips.

These are great for giving extra growing depth to plants such as tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and aubergines. It’s simply a matter of putting them in place, adding compost to the inner container and water to the outer reservoir. There are integrated slots for canes if needed. With three in a pack, these are very good value for money.
