Do you struggle keeping on top of your plant watering schedule? Worried about who will water your precious plants whilst getting away for that much needed long weekend or fortnight holiday? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. That’s why the clever folks at Greenhouse Sensation designed and created the Duogrow Self-Watering Planter.
The Duogrow Planter works as a wick-based system whereby FeederMats will pull water up from the generous 25 litre SmartReservoir as and when the plants require it, keeping the soil perfectly watered for 2-weeks at a time without over-watering. This means that your plants will grow stronger and become more healthier as the risk of erratic watering – the cause of your root rot, split fruit and blossom end rot problems are eradicated!
Just picture the scene… you return from an amazing holiday with your friends or family and return to luscious bumper crops of tomatoes, beans, aubergine, chillies, peas or any other tall-cropping plants of your choice. How rewarding is that?
Thanks to the Duogrow, not only can you optimise your watering schedule on autopilot but you can grow harvests twice the size of that produced by your standard growbags or pots. This in turn means more freshy and healthy produce you can use for delicious meals and to share with your friends and family – becoming self-sufficient which is a hugely satisfying feeling.
The Duogrow is incredibly durable and will last for many years which can later be recycled. This means that you can be proud that you are helping the planet by growing in a sustainable way without any harm done. Furthermore, as the planter re-uses water from its reservoir you are helping reduce water waste.
The Duogrow is incredibly simple to set up and operate. You simply place the FeederMats in the pots, add multi-purpose compost to our 30cm wide pots which fills 12 litres of compost in each, pot on your plant of choice, and fill the 25 litre SmartReservoir (25 litres) that sits below the pots. Any grower with any ability – young or old, new or experienced can set this up fuss free. We have tones of videos and guides on our website to help if you do become unsure with this.
Whether you have a garden, greenhouse, allotment or even just a patio, you are able to grow impressive plants with a Duogrow. Our planter was awarded 'Best Buy' - Best for Small Spaces by Which? Magazine and has been a hugely popular product amongst beginner growers and experienced growers!
The Duogrow is made in our Greenhouse Sensation facility in Lancashire, England by horticultural experts that know everything there is to know about cultivating strong healthy crops and comes with a 2 year guarantee – our promise that you are buying a quality product that will last years to come!
Please note: The Duogrow Planter will now be supplied with black pots instead of green Ask us a question
The Duogrow self-watering planter produces healthier plants and bigger harvests than traditional pots and grow bags by providing your plants with constant access to water without ever over-watering.
What happens when we overwater?
Overwatering prevents roots from accessing oxygen and is the number one cause of plant demise.
When soil is over-watered the pores in the soil become blocked and the roots can't access the air in the soil. Roots need access to oxygen in order to absorb water and nutrients, so lack of oxygen means that the roots can't take up water or nutrients. A plant weakened by overwatering is susceptible to disease, particularly fungal attacks. If the over-watering is repeated the roots suffocate and die.
What happens when we under-water?
Underwatered plants don’t have enough water to make glucose for photosynthesis, for developing cells and for two other often forgotten critical functions.
1: Transporting nutrients and glucose
Water is needed to carry nutrients from soil and glucose from leaves to the other parts of the plant. This is why the calcium deficiency blossom end rot is often caused by erratic watering even if there is sufficient calcium in the soil but not enough water to transport it to the tomatoes.
2: Accessing carbon dioxide
Plants access the carbon dioxide they need for photosynthesis by opening the pores on their leaves and stems. When the pores open they also release water. If the plant is short of water it won't open the pores as frequently and therefore it won't photosynthesise as much, which will lead to lack of glucose and therefore stunted growth. Sunny, hot weather increases the rate of water loss through the pores, so plants need more water in these conditions.
