Self Watering Trays

Self-watering Trays have been developed to enable simple, efficient automatic watering of house plants, bedding plants, seedlings etc - plants look after themselves by just standing them on the trays and they take up water as and when they need it - no more over watering! Self Watering Trays consist of a plastic tray which forms the reservoir for the water. Within this tray is an aluminium platform which is covered with capillary matting. Plants in pots, seed trays, shuttle trays etc are placed on top of the capillary matting and suck up the water they need from the matting. In this way the trays maintain the moistness of the compost your plants require for healthy growth. Self Watering Trays are a convenient way of looking after your plants whilst you are away on holiday. Available in a wide range of sizes, there are long narrow trays that are ideal for fitting on a windowsill - so there will be no more leaky pots. Larger sized Self Watering Trays are ideal for standing on benching within your greenhouse and are large enough to hold full size seed trays. Used all year round Self Watering Trays mean that you don't have to water your plants every day.
