Plants that don’t need watering? Yes please!

When you think about growing plants or vegetables maybe you have specific obstacles that keep you from gardening.  We hear it often.  Things like “I live in a condo and I don’t have a backyard,” or “I have a brown thumb and forget to water my plants so they just die.”

We feel your strife! That’s why when we discovered self-watering containers we had to learn more.  Turns out you can grow indoors, with as little space as your windowsill.  Turns out you can enjoy organic vegetables that require watering as little as every couple of months.

We are so excited about being able to bring gardening to condo owners as well as homeowners, brown thumbs as well as green thumbs that we decided to join forces with a local organization that supports green living, LiveGreen Toronto, to make self-watering containers available to everyone looking to enjoy fresh, local and organic produce (or maybe just some lovely flowering plants) regardless of their abode.

Why you might want a self-watering container instead of a more traditional garden:

  • How it works. In a nutshell, each self-watering containers feature a sub-irrigation system that holds a reservoir of water, and a water-level-indicator which tells you when water levels are low
  • What colours or sizes do the containers come in?  A very wide selection of choices ranging from windowsill and table top designs to larger patio and deck designs are available.  To see a full range of options please visit AHOF’s Green General Store.
  • What can I grow in my container? Virtually any plant that grows in soil can be grown in these self-watering containers.  You can choose to add soil and seeds/seedlings to any planter.  A full selection of what 100% certified organic veggies available can be found here.
  • Can I use my container inside or outside? Yes! These models feature a plug that easily and quickly converts containers from indoor to outdoor use.
  • How often do I need to water? Depending on the size of your container, watering may be required as little as every few months

We hope you’ll be as excited about this breakthrough as we are!

Happy Growing
