    Hi, I'm a small business owner and plant pot manufacturer I'm here to see if you guys (& gals of course) like my product and have any suggestions how to improve my product.

    Over the next few weeks I will be posting various content from ongoing trials with my plant pots I hope you enjoy.

    I'm not interested in the hard sell if you dislike my plant pot please tell me why you really won't hurt my feelings (much).

    Thanks
    Vertically Challenged

      Thanks I should mention I will be posting the majority of content (If not all) in container gardening as it's a plant pot.

      My trials include both hydroponic and traditional compost growing.

      My plant pot is predominately aimed at edibles.

        Hi Sheal, a little taster for you, 2 planters hung as a hanging basket bottom one is a money maker I believe and the top some form of tumbler. Standard bog standard compost with Tomorite.

          A nice idea VC but unfortunately they would be no good to me in my location, tomatoes only survive in my greenhouse, sorry! Any baskets I have outside for plants are metal and screwed to my house walls.

            Thanks for the compliment

            These are aimed at people with limited growing space to maximise your yield and variety. Anyone with a big back garden will be better off with raised beds or large standard plant pots. I designed these several years ago when I lived in a flat with a balcony.

            I also prototyped a flower version but I'm unsure if I will offer this or not.

                  No need to apologise - any misunderstanding was quickly resolved, and besides, that is what we are here for :)

                  Do you have a website currently?

                  Hydroponics is really rather easy it looks a lot more scary than it really is I will do a quick guide to go with the grow.

                  I was scared of hydro the first time I did it but like most things in life once you've done it a few times you wonder what you were worried about.
