You spend all day Sunday trekking the outer-reaches of Hyde Park and the hidden worlds of the Natural History Museum, then get home, fancy a salad because it’s healthy and realise because you live in a city you don’t have a garden and the shop’s shut.
Sound familiar? If so, we might have the solution in an ingenious contraption called the Sky Planter from a Urban Allotments. An offer for this dropped into our inbox this morning which is how we found out about it – details shortly.
Essentially it’s a plastic pot either suspended from the ceiling or fixed to a wall and allows you to grow lettuce and other similar green veg upside down inside your house or apartment. You simply water every 2 weeks, pick the leaves and hey presto, your own garden in the kitchen.
Special offer for Urban Allotments (only applicable on Mon 29th March!)
This is a demo screenshot from the main web site to show how it works, although we assume the Sky Planter won’t send you into a time-warp like the person in the picture:
