Food Map Container

What looks like a small bath tub on wheels is a growing space for an edible garden. It features a special contoured base that drains water quickly and evenly to prevent plants from over-soaking, but also has a central reservoir where a small amount of water collects to keep the soil moist longer. Comes in a Short or Tall configuration, and is priced at $150 and $160 respectively.

Manufactured in Los Angeles County.

Geo Planters

I really love these hand-cast planters by Kelly Lamb. It’s quite an interesting mix of materials and textures; they’re cast in concrete for an industrial feel but have a smooth finish to go well in interiors, and of course adding in plants gives it the final touch. Available in small and large sizes, priced at $80 and $125.

Small Geo Planter: 9.5″ diameter, 8lbs
Large Geo Planter: 15″ diameter, 25lbs

JeffreyJamesModern terrariums

Jeffrey, of JeffreyJamesModern, commented upon the cost prohibitive Ladyslipper Terrarium last week in order to draw attention to his own more affordable line. And what do you know, compared to $9,500.00, the price of $350 seems downright dirt cheap. I’d snap of them up right away if I lived in the US and if I could keep plants alive. There’s also a “You Choose, I Create” terrarium option, where you can choose everything “from the size and shape of the terrarium to a myriad of materials, colors and plants inside”.

To see the entire line, visit JeffreyJamesModern.

Plant Nanny Stakes

If you ever run into the who’s-going-to-water-my-plants-while-I’m-gone conundrum, check out these Plant Nanny Stakes. Most plastic bottles will fit (reusable points), ensuring that your plants get just the right amount of water while you’re away. There’s also stakes to fit wine bottles if you have more of those to use/reuse. Or, even better, take a look at the Self-Watering Probes (5 pack for $23.95), which sound strange but would work well for long term holidays since they work with a larger water reservoir.

Put those plastic bottles to use, they should do more than just come from an evil plastic factory, hold water, and get tossed into a landfill. Keep it around, and put it to work. Just connect the Plant Nanny Stake to the bottle, shove the stake deep into the soil of your ever thirsty plant, and watch the water level slowly lessen as the the plant takes only the water it needs to be happy.

$4.95 price quoted is for one stake.

Three 4 packs for $41.95 available through Amazon.

Pascal Charmolu & Born In Sweden’s Watering Can

Hello, hello. Check out this snazzy watering can by Pascal Charmolu. A flexible hose ensures water goes where you want it while a magnet keeps the hose upright/attached when not in use. Clever.

Made of 18-0 stainless steel, this can features a flexible silicone hose with a built-in magnet that allows it to be attached to the canís body when not in use… When watering your plants, simply hold the metal cylinder with one hand and the hose in the other. Move the metal cylinder up or down to cease water flow. Voila!

Size: 12.5″ t

Note: Available for Pre-order. Delivery expected mid to end November.
