Our self-watering system for planters will save you time, water and money!

So how do they do it? Every planter in our range benefits from our unique ‘Aquafeed’ self-watering system which keeps plants healthy and nourished for longer whilst only requiring a top up once or twice a week. Our quality planters come in a range of colours, shapes and sizes suited to a variety of situations. So, whether you want to lift the spirit in a town or city centre, inject some colour into your forecourt or enter the ever more popular Britain in Bloom competition, Amberol has the right solution for you.

What are the benefits of Amberol’s self-watering planters?:

  • Ease of use - don’t leak, less watering, low maintenance… Because evaporation is kept to a minimum our planters need only be topped up once or twice a week, saving you time, water and money.
  • Longer lasting flower displays - a series of high capacity capillary-action wicks contained within our self-watering planters “suck” water up from a sub-soil water reservoir onto a dispersal matting. From here water spreads evenly to the compost, keeping it optimally moist at all times. As a result, plants stay healthy and look stunning for longer. Why? Because plant roots grow towards the water source, absorbing only the water and nutrient they need.
  • Our planters are customisable - available in 18 standard colours with options for adding your own branding and sponsorship, our planters can be personalised to your needs.

Our unique ‘Aquafeed’ system

Our unique ‘Aquafeed’ system

‘Aquafeed’ is a unique self-watering system pioneered and developed by Amberol to keep your plants alive and healthy for longer. This efficient system keeps your plants permanently and evenly watered, releasing the vital nutrients into the soil. The large built-in water storage chamber, protected from the heat of the sun, ensures that plants stay healthy. The beauty of the system is that you need not water every day, not even in the height of summer - saving you precious staff time and money!

What does the Environment Bill mean for the war on litter?

One of our key aims at Amberol is to ‘Help make a visible difference’ to the places where our products are located. In the case of self-watering planters, this may mean creating more attractive public spaces to encourage visitors, enhance the local economy or simply make it a nicer place to live. In the case of litter bins, this might include reducing litter to ensure a cleaner, tidier environment, as well as achieving ecological targets such as improving recycling rates.
