This weekend, I was looking at the Cargoh (a BC Canadian company) newsletter when I noticed the big banner on Patch (also a BC Canadian company).
How wonderful is this product, seriously! Patch is basically a year-round indoor herb gardening system. Obviously, other eatables can be grown in them (such as lettuce, for example), and obviously, you can also put them outside (everything is washable) on your small city balcony in the summer.
The system ” “self waters” by using a technique called sub irrigation, which allows the water to enter the soil through capillary action”, how practical!
Also eco-friendly, the “Patch herb planter body is made with Tyvek (a HDPE), which has all the properties of paper film and fabric. It’s fully recyclable, washable, and stain resistant. The interior components are made of PP #5. All of these components are fully recyclable.” They ship flat (simple assembly instructions are added to your package), so that is also cost and space efficient as far as shipping goes.
3 styles are offered, as well as a price for a 3-pack to make you save a little compared to a single planter purchase!
Also, customer service is totally top notch. I emailed a question, and within 4 hours, Kent Houston himself (the founder and CEO) replied to me with the info. How wonderfully great is that, right!?
Lightly said, I am in love with Patch already, hence, I will go order 3 right this second. ;)
(And I’ll make sure to update you guys on how it all unfolds in my actual home!)
