Gardening can be a rewarding experience. Whether you are an experienced horticulturalist or not, once your plants mature and reward you with a blaze of colour, there is nothing more satisfying.
If you prefer to grow your own vegetables and fruit, that can be just as exciting when you literally start to reap the rewards of your own fresh produce.
Planters are a fabulous way of extending your garden, or if you only have a small outside space, of creating a containerised garden. If you enjoy gardening but struggle with mobility or dexterity, then a containerised garden may be an option, particularly if you can obtain lightweight planters.
iQbana manufacture a range of planters that can be used indoors or outdoors, from Expanded Polypropene (EPP), a closed-cell bead foam. Highly versatile, the material offers a range of benefits.
First and foremost, EPP has a high strength to weight ratio, so these planters are exceptionally lightweight - weighing in at a mere 270g for the 25cm pot up to only 1.65kg for the 48cm pot – but fantastically strong and durable. Accordingly, these planters are perfect for roof terraces or patios.
EPP has outstanding energy absorption and is also shockproof, able to withstand multiple impacts. Frost resistant to -40°C and conversely, heat resistant to 40°C, EPP offers great thermal properties so will protect root systems whilst the plant won’t suffocate due to the breathable material.
The planters are non-toxic and food approved making them ideal for growing fruit and vegetables and safe if you have young children.
The planters are suitable for use indoors, or out and due to the smooth qualities of the material, they will not scratch floors and are also easy to clean.
Last, but by no means least, when protecting our planet is an important issue, these planters are 100% recyclable, so these are environmentally friendly!
What more could you ask? With a wealth of benefits, these iQbana square planters are not only practical, they come in a range of sizes, in a neutral grey or black – the perfect backdrop for a colourful floral display.
