Uni-Grow, the ultimate planting system using a "grow bag". This product has been designed, not only to get the best out of the bag but enable you to use in areas where you wouldn't expect to. The Uni-Grow system will earn its place in any home garden, it will also complement planting in allotments and be really useful in the greenhouse.
Better Plant Growth. Because the grow bag is held vertically there is greater depth for root growth, and by keeping the bag off the ground there is more air around the bag to prevent it overheating in the sun. Also with the increased depth there is less chance of over watering causing problems.

Note, this is a new and exciting product that we have just developed. We will be developing this as a gardening system and are looking forward to feedback from our customers about how it works for them, any like and dislikes and anything they would like to see changed or added to make it a better product.

Versatile. The Uni-Grow bag holder keeps the bag vertical to help root growth and keeps the bag off the ground. The bag keeps cooler in this orientation but for the user, it means less mess and the whole unit is now transportable. You can effectively keep the bags closer together and take up less floor space but as the planting grows you can move them about. You could start off in the green house and then take them outside when they are ready or if you need to you can bring things in when you need to (better to lift them, don't drag them or you could break the feet). Side Growth. With the bag vertical not only do you have the opportunity to grow up from the top of the bag you could grow sideways out to the bag. By doing this you could have upright planting from the top, including climbers, and then have trailing plants or what would normally be ground cover, growing from the sides. The Uni-Grow could be your vegetable garden or a fantastic but compact display of colourful flowers (or a bit of both)
Cane Supports. The Uni-Grow system has features to take standard canes up to 11mm in diameter. This enables you develop a cane support system or framework on top of the Uni-Grow to support climbers, to put a cage of netting over say, fruit to protect it from birds or to enclose the whole thing in polythene to create a miniature green house. The opportunities are only limited by your imagination.
Stackable. This is where the Uni-Grow system comes into its own, The basic Uni-Grow product will stack vertically by using the Cane Support features. By fitting short canes into the top cane supports of one Uni-Grow, another Uni-Grow can be mounted on top of this. Alternatively, if you put two Uni-Grow systems side by side you can fit another Uni-Grow on top, between the two of them in a pyramid. We have yet to test the long term strength of our system but potential the stacks could grow and link together to form areas of cascading foliage to suit your garden but then you can move them around if you want to.
Clearly the Uni-Grow system is perfect for patios but specifically for small areas. If you have a small garden or patio where you want to try a mixture of planting, borders and even pots can take up a lot of space. The Uni-Grow gives you the versatility of pots but allows you to grow vertically to take up the minimum of space. For the first time there is a planting system that can provide an almost unlimited choice of planting for a small balcony. Imagine you live on the 12th floor of a block of flats with a tiny balcony... you can set up a stack of Uni-Grow's to grow Climbers like tomatoes and beans and then in the lower sections you can grow herbs, vegetables, strawberries, flowers and so on. If the aspect of the balcony causes problems with sun or lack of it or wind etc, then with the right choice of polythene or netting, you can protect you planting to give it the best chance. A flat with a Kitchen Garden - whatever next.

Cane End Fittings. We sell the cane end fittings separately if you need extras for the Uni-Grow or they can be used elsewhere in the garden where you are joining or linking canes and stakes that are about 10mm - 11mm in diameter. These cane fittings "thread" onto the canes easily. They are made from black impact modified Nylon so are suitable for external use all year round. The cane fittings are great for "A" frames or "box" frames for netting or polythene and they feature holes for ties or cord to hold the structure down. Have a look at our assembly instructions to see how they are assembled - cane_fitting_instructions_08-04-11.pdf Cane Fittings pack of 10 only£8.00+ P&P
When Stacking Uni-Grow, you will need to link each one together using short dowels or stakes. We supply a simple kit containing 4 short extruded UPVC pins that fit into the top cane support holes of the end plates in the Uni-Grow and link into corresponding holes in the bottom of the end plates. When attaching one Uni-Grow onto another you would put these pins into the bottom Uni-Grow first and then lower the second Uni-Grow on top. It is advisable to have an extra pair of hands to help with this as it is sometimes difficult to see where the pins are going when you lower the top one into position. Alternatively it is possible to fit the top Uni-Grow without the grow bag and without the top two planks. This way it is easy to handle and you can see what you are doing. You can then drop the grow bag into the "V" of the lower planks and then slide the top two plank into place. A pack of four pins will do a stack of two or a stack of three Uni-Grows.
