Returning home to a bone-dry basil plant or an orchid that has passed out is now a thing of the past. Even though most of us love green plants, flowers and herbs, we are not all equally blessed with green fingers, but help is now at hand.

The secret behind the self-watering system is that all the flowerpots feature a nylon wick in the base of the upper pot which draws water up from a reservoir in the bottom pot. The plants thus get the necessary nutrients by drawing up the amount of water they need themselves. All you need to do is fill the water reservoir as required.
