Orto Urban Gardens

Orto Urban Gardens are self watering planter boxes that make it easy to grow your own food in small spaces. The design includes a built in water reservoir that feeds your plants exactly the right amount of water from below, with an overflow outlet that makes it impossible to over water. The plants draw water up from the reservoir by a process gardener's call "wicking"which is essentially taking advantage of waters natural tendency to migrate from wet to dry zones.

Because the plants are fed from below, there is less water loss through evaporation, less disease caused by wet leaves, and you don't have to worry if you go away for a few weeks as the reservoir will keep your plants at an optimum moisture level.
You don't need to be an experienced gardner to grow your own plants. We can help get you started and soon be enjoying your own home grown herbs and veggies...they always taste better when you grow it yourself.
Some of the plants which we have been growing are:
Asparagus, Beans, Bok Choy, Broccoli
