Our superior-quality English capillary matting draws up water like a sponge, then slowly transfers it to your plants from the bottom up. Healthy root growth is encouraged without danger of over-watering. Simply put one end in water and place the rest under your pots. Fits beautifully in our Jumbo Boot Tray
Place your Grow Bag on this self-watering tray, fill the reservoir and the capillary mat will provide a steady supply of water to plants as they need it. Also reduces how often you need to water. Reservoir holds 1/2 gallon. Fits one Tomato Grow Bag or Pepper Grow Bag.
Specially sized and shaped to fit our Pop-Out Pots, these replacement capillary strips extend up the sides of the pots to efficiently wick water from the reservoir to plant roots.
Grow vegetables and flowers right outside your door! This ultra-durable, galvanized steel elevated planter box dresses up your porch, patio, deck or balcony. A faux wood finish on the aluminum trim gives it a modern edge. The patented self-watering system uses capillary tubes to deliver water from the reservoir to the soil to keep roots consistently moist. And the generous reservoir means you water less often.
The classic coir basket gets colorful with this cheery hanging planter. Both the steel frame and the liner are infused with color, creating an unexpected backdrop for your plants. Go as bold as you want — add plants and foliage in bright colors, or create a monochrome flower palette.
How do garden centers keep their hanging baskets so lush? We’ve discovered the secret: AquaSav Basket Liners. Developed for the commercial nursery trade, these smarter hanging basket liners require 50% less watering than standard baskets. Sandwiched between layers of natural coir fiber is a water-retaining liner made of 100% recycled post-consumer plastic. It’s a lifesaver for flowers, especially if they're exposed to both sun and wind.
