Self watering wall planter
Cleveland, United Kingdom
Some years ago I bought a couple of half round wall planters. The top part of the planter holds the compost, which sits on a rigid piece of plastic with a piece of capillary matting on it. A tounge of this matting goes down into the bottom quarter of the planter which is a water reservoir keeping the compost moist. This is a great idea which cuts down on watering.
I would like one or two more of these but when I asked in my local garden centre they looked at me blank . . . . they had never seen or heard of them!
My question is - does anyone know where I can buy more of these planters?
