Those of you who know us, know that plastic is not really our thing. We generally prefer natural materials in our garden and therefore in our shop. However, once in a while, things come along which gives us permission to break this rule. The Vitopod items are just such a thing.
Beautifully designed and carefully manufactured in the UK, they could seriously revolutionise your gardening and growing life. Buy one online today and you could be eating your own herbs and vegetables in a few weeks!

Use the lowest height (no side layers) to propagate seeds or cuttings. When it comes to hardening off and protecting taller plants the Vitopod propagator can be moved outside and more height added with extra side layers.
The small square Vitapod heated propagator is good for small spaces, whilst the large rectangular Vitopod heated propagator alternative is twice the size for a bigger crop. Each size has two versions; a single side layer or a double side layer (each side layer adds an extra 15cm of height). Further extra layers can then be purchased as required.
These heated versions have a temperature range of 5c to 30c which is enough to get the most timid of seeds going. The heating elements run the length and width of the unit thus preventing hot and cold spots.
A practical wooden potting table in a rustic grey painted finish with large zinc inner trough.
This gorgeous potting bench is designed so you can fill the inner trough with compost, then pot up your seedlings on the sliding tray on the top of the table. When you have finished potting up, the surplus compost can be easily tipped back into the trough.
The potting table is made from a softwood, so will be need to be kept under cover in your greenhouse / conservatory / outhouse.
Minimal self-assembly required.
Available from mid March.
As it retains warmth and humidity allowing for quicker growth it is a great way to extend the sowing season for salads and leaves.
It will fit comfortably over a raised bed as shown here, giving protection to outdoor tomatoes, brassicas and tender plants such as courgettes.
Alternatively it can be used as a shelter for tender patio plants, pots or trays.
The frame is easy to assemble, made from powder coated steel with ground pegs to secure it. The protection cover is heavy duty giving protection both against weather and pests. There are 4 side zips for easy access and has insect proof ventilation panels at either side.
Don’t let your tender or exotic plants get caught out in the winter by harsh frosts or drying winds.
Smaller plants in pots are easier to protect, putting them in greenhouses or conservatories, but it is the larger and often very expensive plants such as bay trees which are left to suffer.
These extra large fleece jackets are an easy way to protect delicate plants such as bay trees, palms and cordalynes. The fleece allows both air and moisture to filter through maintaining healthy growth.
The fleece is in soft green, UV stabilised polypropylene fleece, and has a drawstring at the base for easy use.
