Exclusive | Cut Your Watering Chores by 80%

  • Handy mats let you water potted plants less frequently
  • Fabric contains polymer crystals that absorb water, then release it slowly to plants as they need it
  • Mats can be trimmed to fit your container or hanging basket
  • Choose pre-cut mats or a 15' roll

When we first tested these water-absorbing mats, the results seemed too good to be true. So we asked some of our customers to try them, and they gave Hydro-Mats rave reviews! Each individual mat holds a full quart of water, wicking it up almost instantly and then releasing it slowly, so you water weekly instead of daily. Choice of a set of eight 7" x 7" mats or a 15' L x 21-3/4" W roll.

  • Made of poly-spun fabric with polymer crystals
  • Set of eight 7" x 7" mats or 15' L x 21-3/4" W roll
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

    Comments about Hydro-Mats:

    I love my planters for summer color but the chore of watering can be quite time consuming when the heat arrives and stays for months. This product minimizes the chore and gives me healthy happy flower pots all season long.

        I just started using these yesterday so I have to see how they really work but if they work like they're supposed to then it will save my flowers over the summer when it gets really hot.

            This is the third year I have used these mats for my window boxes. They cut down on watering and keep my boxes from drying out when I go away for a few days at a time in the summer.

              Comments about Hydro-Mats:

              I line my seed trays with sheets of hydro mat. When watering I check the mat for wetness/dryness. Never overwater or underwater seedlings again.
              It is not easy to determine which side is top versus the bottom. Sheet tends to fall apart when you dry it and try to re use it the following season.

                    The mats are GREAT. During the hot summer months, my plants still look good as the roots stay moist thanks to the mats. This was the fourth time I have purchased the mats (on the roll). I share it with my mother who also loves the product.

                      Bought a 3'x6' grow bed then put all my 8 hydro-mats as instructed.Planted cantaloupe and honey dew in it and my plants are just thriving real good compared to my potted plants without hydro- mat. It has been raining a lot so had not watered my plant bed for about 2 weeks and plants are just fine. I am buying the bigger size hydro-mat so it will be handy anytime I need to pot a plant.

                      We have just tried this product for the first time this year. So far So good. We have them in all of our hanging flower pots and they appear to be doing what they advertise.
