For some people, growing vegetables may seem as an impossible task due to them living in a city apartment and simply not having enough space to grow plants. The only available space for some people living in urban areas might be the balcony, rooftop or an alleyway. Properties with unfavorable soil conditions like sand, stone and clay make growing vegetables even harder.
However, luckily for you, there are modern solutions to all of these problems – garden planter pots. These pots make growing vegetables and any other plants possible in any area, regardless of the lack of available space you have. You just have to figure out where you want the planter placed, how much space you have available, and according to those factors, you can decide on the shape and size of the planter you are going to purchase.
Modern garden planter pots have a self-watering feature. This makes them so convenient it’s insane! The pots use reservoirs that can last from 7 to 10 days without having to refill their water tank, and on top of that they don’t overwater and underwater the plants. Besides that, the valuable nutrients are kept in the soil. Honestly, this makes growing vegetables easier than growing them on a farm. The value out of the pots is great.
The self-watering pots are also quite versatile, you can connect a couple of them, depending on how much space you have to create your perfect little garden, inside your house or on a balcony. You have to keep in mind though, that besides water, vegetables need sunlight to thrive. So, unless you are planting some flowers that don’t require much sunlight, it’s a good idea to place the pots near a window at least, if you want them indoors.
The size of the plants you want to plant will have an impact on the decision about the planter’s size. You want big plants in large enough planters so the roots don’t cramp, which will cause your plants to eventually die. Create the perfect little garden for yourself and grow some heirloom seeds into vegetables that you can use yourself, so you don’t have to go to the market and wonder whether some vegetable is GMO or not and how will it impact your health.
To conclude, self-watering planter pots benefit you in many ways, including: saving time from watering them on daily basis, saving money by growing your own vegetables, extreme versatility, convenient use and installing.
