Garden trend: grow sustainably with these innovations
Growing sustainably, it actually sounds very logical, because when you have a vegetable garden, you might also work a lot with sustainability. In a vegetable garden, as well as with growing containers and growing plants, you see many recyclable items. Now expanding garden brand Nature® Expanding their growing assortment with practical and sustainable supplies.
I am a novice when it comes to vegetable gardening and until recently Nature® an unknown brand to me. Until I met them at a blog boat event. In addition to information, I also received a goodie bag, including items for sustainable vegetable gardening.
How to grow sustainably
You want to grow sustainably, after all this is better for the environment and your plants. But how can you do this? The tips below can help you:
Set of biodegradable grow pots with coconut fiber tablet
If you want to grow seeds or houseplants, biodegradable pots with tablets of coconut fibre from Nature® a godsend. The tablets in the pots provide the right amount of oxygen and water to encourage healthy root growth. Then you can put the biodegradable pots in the ground altogether.
Ideal because then you don’t have to bother with pricking out and planting in the ground, and you won’t damage the roots.
A set consists of three pots made of recycled wood fiber with tablets made of coconut fiber, suggested retail price€ 4,99.
Mini greenhouse with biodegradable coconut mat
Sustainable growing also means using reusable mini greenhouses. This greenhouse from Nature® fits perfectly on the windowsill and is available in two sizes. Place the biodegradable coir mat on the soil. Because it retains moisture, germination of seeds is promoted.
If you are going to put your plants in separate pots, cut the coconut mat to the right size beforehand.
The mini greenhouse is available in 35 x 23.5 cm and in 49 x 15.5 cm, recommended retail price € 10.95. The matching coir mats of 30 or 45 cm are sold separately, recommended retail price € 3.49.

If you have a small and modest garden or balcony, these new, trendy plant bags are ideal. The Nature® planting bags, available in beige and anthracite, are especially for growing tubers, herbs and potatoes. The handy flap allows potatoes to be harvested at any time and the handles make it easy to move the planting bags around.
