Products to make gardening easier - 2019 gardening trend
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly. But if there’s a canny tool that’d make it easier, that’s definitely a good thing. With constant time-pressures on our hands and the development of technology and materials, the emergence of ever more products to make gardening easier comes as no surprise.
At BBC Gardeners’ World Live you’ll find hundreds of exhibitors of quality gardening kit, including many new products that will help to keep the workload down, so you can spend more time enjoying your garden! Here’s just a selection of the innovative ideas that you’ll find at the Show in June 2019.
HydroVeg (stand G560)
HydroVeg Kit is an innovative way of growing vegetables with no soil, no digging, no watering, no snails and no slugs. The idea for HydroVeg Kits was born, or rather grown, in a back garden in the Midlands, the brainchild of enthusiastic entrepreneur and gardener, Sue Tonks.
Airpot (stand G226)
The revolutionary design of the Air-Pot container actively enhances the growth and health of plants. The pots encourage healthy root development and maximise aeration. At the same time the shape of the wall eliminates root circling and encourages the development of a mass of healthy fibrous roots. The additional roots mean better take up of nutrients and water leading to faster growth and healthier plants. Toughly constructed from recycled plastic, Air-Pot containers should last up to ten years or more.
Patio Black Spot Removal Company (stand G470)
