Mr Fothergill’s Speedplanter for busy gardeners

Can’t be bothered with the hassle of hanging baskets or containers? Now there’s a solution to save gardeners time and energy from Mr Fothergill’s.

The Speedplanter is a quick and easy solution to create attractive displays in just three weeks.

Mr Fothergill’s Emilia Merola said: “The Speedplanter is a totally new concept and is perfect for gardeners who are short on time or don’t have the growing space but still want to achieve beautiful and co-ordinated patio containers and hanging baskets which will last through the summer.”

Each unit measures just under 30cm in diameter and approximately 8cm in height and will arrive ready for immediate placing into a hanging basket or container.

Available as themed collections, each planter comes with slow-release fertiliser included and is set with seven plants, which will root through the bottom of the planter, and then grow together and last well into early autumn.

Getting the best out of Speedplanter

The company is recommending its customers follow these points to get the best results;

  • Drop the Speedplanter into a hanging basket or patio container.
  • Top up with a little more potting compost where needed.
  • In just a few weeks, enjoy a floral display.

There are six colour-themed Speedplanter Collections, three for hanging baskets and three for containers.

All cost £16.95 each and will be delivered from late May.
