The Experts’ Choice
Welcome to the Air-Pot ® website
If you are a commercial grower please go to our Nursery website.
The revolutionary design of the Air-Pot container actively enhances the growth and health of plants. This short video explains how it works.
The ground-breaking design of the Air-Pot container has been continually refined over twenty years and is now in its sixth generation.
Every detail has been enhanced to guarantee healthy root development and maximise aeration. Additional oxygen in the growing medium leads to healthy bacteria and better nutrient release. At the same time the shape of the wall eliminates root circling and encourages the development of a mass of healthy fibrous roots. The additional roots mean better take up of nutrients and water leading to faster growth and healthier plants.
Toughly constructed from recycled plastic Air-Pot containers can last up to ten years or more.
For plants to thrive they need healthy roots, but standard pots deform roots and this seriously compromises the health of the plant.
Air-Pot containers do the opposite, actively enhancing the plant by making it develop a mass of healthy fibrous roots. This maximises the ability to absorb nutrients and water leading to faster growth.
For Growers who know
For many years the Air-Pot container has been the choice of expert growers around the world who use it in all areas of horticulture from food production to growing the largest trees.
Only trees grown in Air-Pot containers were used for the landscaping of London’s Olympic Park and the system is relied on by the world’s leading horticultural institutions for their vital programs of research and conservation. At the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew over three thousand species of plant are now grown in Air-Pot containers.
