AutoPot keep growing!

Unchecked horticultural adventurism wherever you grow. A garden of your very own, capable of raising flowers, fruit and veg without the need for in-earth outdoor space. A mess-free, power-free means of feeding and irrigating that liberates you to cultivate what you want, when you want. AutoPot Watering Systems aim to bring growers all this and more, regardless of their past experience.

4Pot, easy2grow, Tray2Grow – these three products from our 2023 range reflect our aspirations for watering systems perfectly. All are simple, sustainable, and affordable enough for beginners to master, but also provide sufficient scope for growers to develop their horticultural techniques, allowing them to experiment endlessly with interesting new varieties.


The 4Pot System combines ease of use with the capacity to grow exquisite, fruitful, and even prizewinning plants. It comes complete with four 15 litre pot-and-tray modules, a 47-litre reservoir and all the fittings required to create a layout to suit your space. 


Trusted by our closest friends, esteemed hobby growers, and national champions alike, the easy2grow kit is great for short bushy varieties and tall vine crops. As it combines two pots in a single module tray, easy2grow is a fantastically space-efficient option. Ideal for those with limited room in which to grow.


Automatic watering at its versatile best, Tray2Grow supports a multitude of cultivation methods. From grow bags to seed trays, planters to pots and micro herbs, Tray2Grow can be configured to suit every conceivable growth stage and every plant type.


All AutoPot Watering Systems are fully-automated, power-free, and gravity-fed -requiring no electricity or running water. This is thanks to the AQUAvalve5, our patented water control device, which is present in every one of our systems. Once the systems are connected to a reservoir it is the AQUAvalve5 that controls the inward flow of water and nutrient solution in response to plant consumption.


Such ‘Plant Controlled Irrigation’ allows growers to relax, enjoy their plants, and spend their time honing their horticultural skills, safe in the knowledge that watering is always taken care of.


As the systems require no utilities practically any space becomes viable for growing and you can leave them running unattended in confidence for extended periods, whether in the greenhouse, in the garden, on a patio, or on a balcony.
