For those new to growing their own food, the elho tomato and potato pots provide a practical and convenient way to begin the home-grown journey, whether they are growing in a large garden or on a patio or balcony.

The added water reservoir also ensures that the growing fruit remains healthy and thriving – creating an efficient system that makes caring for tomato plants easy.
The green basics potato pot offers a similar style to the tomato pot, but it also provides gardeners with an easy way to keep track of how root vegetables are growing thanks to its clever design featuring a basic pot fitted within the outer pot. Once the seed potatoes have been planted and they have started to grow, simply lift up the inner pot to see the vegetables develop! The pots lightweight design also means it is easy to lift, making it perfect for children to get involved and learn more about the origins of food throughout the growing journey!
For city dwellers and those with smaller exterior spaces, the elho green basics veggie wall offers an all-in-one growing solution, allowing a flurry of plants to be grown at once. With the addition of a 125cm trellis, the veggie wall optimises vertical growth, offering support and height to taller, climbing plants such as beans and peas.
The pot is also equipped with a 10-litre water reservoir, so plants can continue to flourish even in the depths of summer. Its thin, rectangular design also makes it an ideal pot to have adorned in smaller outdoor spaces, such as balconies or terraces due to its space-effective design.
For an all-round home-growing adventure, the elho green basics growing tables are perfect for growing a variety of fruits and vegetables – providing a portable growing garden of organic goodness. The design of the table is also at an ideal height for both adults and children to take part in harvesting their own fruits and vegetables.
Gardeners can be sure that their plants get just the right amount of water in the grow table as the hollow legs have small holes at the bottom which allows excess water to be drained.

They are available in living black, leaf green and lime green – to allow green-fingered enthusiasts to inject style and distinctive colour to their plots.
