With the use of Amberol’s special Self-watering System our watering crews now manage with just two visits per week to water planters during the summer. This would compare to daily visits when we had traditional baskets.Read our case studies
Last month we blogged about planting in hanging baskets and containers to keep the beauty and colour of floral displays going into the autumn and beyond to cheer up the colder and darker days ahead. So, imagine how pleased we were when Pontefract in Bloom tweeted us to tell us they’d acted on one of our tips and had filled Amberol self-watering containers, including prominent town centre tiered planters with gorgeous autumnal pansies and violas.
The children of Arboretum Primary in Derby were excited to receive a visit from East Midlands Today in late October as they unveiled the latest addition to their outdoor learning area – a greenhouse constructed out of used fizzy drinks bottles.
Not all the autumn leaves have fallen from the trees yet, which means there’s still time to plant bulbs for a welcome display of colour when spring arrives. Most bulbs are suitable for planting in containers and a bit of planning now will pay big dividends when it comes to cheering up your surroundings when the first signs of spring appear next year.
Be inventive – plants will grow in almost anything. Sinks, baths, even wellington boots can make quirky containers - although they may not provide ideal growing conditions.
