Smart gardening with Lechuza
GTN Xtra Promotion


Stressful gardening is now a thing of the past thanks to self-watering planter manufacturer, Lechuza.


Suitable for both beginners and professionals, these clever planters take the guesswork out of watering. Simply fill your Lechuza planter with the included PON, cover with soil and place your plant inside the planter. Then, fill it up with either more soil, PON, or a bit of both. Next, water your plant as normal for a few weeks, allowing the roots to establish. Then, let Lechuza take care of the rest.


The clever sub-irrigation system ensures that your flowers and herbs get as much water as they need, when they need it. All that’s left to do is fill the reservoir through the handy water supply shaft and your plants are taken care of for up to 12 weeks. The included Lechuza-PON also helps perfectly control water supply, improving plant growth by 30%. For a quick check-up, the planters include a visual indicator to show how much water is left, so you know when it’s time for a re-fill.

If you’re wondering about cleaning or moving your plant pots, Lechuza couldn’t have made it any easier with the lightweight material. All planters contain a flexible and clever liner which lifts easily and some are interchangeable. Some even come with integrated rollers for completely hassle-free movement.


Lechuza planters are not only clever but shatterproof, UV-resistant and fashion-conscious. With a wide variety of colours, styles and sizes on offer, Lechuza has the perfect planter for every home, every garden and every planting idea.


If you’re struggling for outdoor space, look no further than the BALCONISSIMA Color. These stylish planters can be attached to balconies and railings using the included brackets, so even the smallest of spaces can look beautiful with Lechuza – that’s urban gardening made easy! For more space-saving ideas, the CASCADA Color is expertly designed so that planters can sit singularly or be conveniently stacked into a tower of up to 3 planters, ideal for an impromptu restyle. The NIDO Cottage is also a great choice without having to compromise on ground space. These hanging baskets are quick to plant and easy to mount and the stainless steel hanger holds your flowers securely. They can also double as a table planter on flat surfaces. All outdoor-friendly Lechuza planters include a drain plug to help release any excess water, so your plants are safe from water logging even during heavy rain.



For those looking to redesign their home or garden, the new YULA Collection boasts modern living. The combination of a table planter, plant bag and watering can harmonises well and adds greenery and sophistication to any space. They’re also the perfect addition to any kitchen, offering an elegant way to plant herbs and vegetables.



Whether on the balcony, in the garden, kitchen, lounge, small or large space, Lechuza have the perfect planter for the home, office or as the ideal gift.
