Shortlisted for the RHS Chelsea Sustainable Garden Product of the Year 2021, PlantBox is an affordable, easy-to-construct vertical plant wall using stackable troughs that can be free-standing or wall-mounted. With just over 8 troughs per square metre, it gives space for three to six plants per trough, around 33 plants/m2, depending on size. Each trough has a reservoir capacity of 1.8 litres, with an easy-to-read indicator showing water levels. Moisture is wicked into the soil using felt strips, which makes watering a simple matter and ensures that plants can draw water as they need it for sustained growth. Plants can be fed with slow-release fertiliser in the soil, or with feed added to the water. Made from 100% recycled materials, the troughs can be stacked in any configuration, up to 8 metres high. Every third trough in a stack should be attached to an upright, such as boundary wall, fence upright or balcony railing. Available in packs of three, five or ten troughs, PlantBox can also be used indoors, with an appropriate drip-tray.
