Better aeration and drainage makes Air-Pot containers ideal for growing a wide range of subtropical and temperate crops, either under glass or outside.

The Medium and Large sized Air-Pot containers are perfect for tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, chillies, aubergines, melons and anything else you would like to grow.

To assist in the hand watering, the containers are made with three uncut cones at the top of the wall, to form a deep water reservoir.

The unique design of the Air-Pot container transforms the quality of plants right from germination

Propagation Trays

To get the best from your plants it is essential that they develop good roots right from germination.

The increased aeration of the compost in the Air-Pot propagation tray means more even germination right across the tray and air pruning leads to the development of healthy fibrous roots, with no deformities.

The tray has two uncut cones at the top of the wall to form the water reservoir.

Trees and Shrubs

Air-Pot containers were originally developed for nursery growing of trees and are successfully used by professional growers and leading horticultural institutions all over the world.

A range of these original containers is also available for the amateur gardener. To ensure that there is absolutely no possibility of root circling this range only has one uncut cone at the top to make a shallow water reservoir.

Compost-Air

To make good compost you need healthy bacteria, which thrive in a well aerated environment . Our innovative plastic composter is designed to encourage air flow all round the walls as well as up from the base of the compost heap. It looks good, is simple to assemble and lasts for years. Like all Air-Pot containers it is made from 100% recycled plastic.

Almost any plant will grow better in an Air-Pot container. We make a comprehensive range of different containers to cater for every need.

The revolutionary design of the Air-Pot container actively enhances the growth and health of plants. This short video explains how it works.

Revolutionary Design

The ground-breaking design of the Air-Pot container has been continually refined over twenty years and is now in its sixth generation.

Every detail has been enhanced to guarantee healthy root development and maximise aeration. Additional oxygen in the growing medium leads to healthy bacteria and better nutrient release. At the same time the shape of the wall eliminates root circling and encourages the development of a mass of healthy fibrous roots. The additional roots mean better take up of nutrients and water leading to faster growth and healthier plants.

Toughly constructed from recycled plastic Air-Pot containers can last up to ten years or more.

Fantastic Roots

For plants to thrive they need healthy roots, but standard pots deform roots and this seriously compromises the health of the plant.

Air-Pot containers do the opposite, actively enhancing the plant by making it develop a mass of healthy fibrous roots. This maximises the ability to absorb nutrients and water leading to faster growth.

For Growers who know

For many years the Air-Pot container has been the choice of expert growers around the world who use it in all areas of horticulture from food production to growing the largest trees.

Only trees grown in Air-Pot containers were used for the landscaping of London’s Olympic Park and the system is relied on by the world’s leading horticultural institutions for their vital programs of research and conservation. At the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew over three thousand species of plant are now grown in Air-Pot containers.
