No Garden? No problem! - Conatinaer Planting

This video is all about container planting! Container planting is really useful if you have limited space and no garden to speak of. It’s super versatile and you can use almost anything to grow in. Plants want to grow so if you just give them what they need they’ll flourish. Honestly, as long as you have the right size container you can grow anything in them. To get you started we're gonna show you how to plant herbs for your windowsill, your own bounty of salad leaves and how to grow spuds in a bag.

Not got a garden? Only have a tiny space? Then these videos are for you!
This one is all about vertical growing! This video is all about Vertical Growing and it’s great if you have limited space. In this video we show you a few ways to make the most of your small space AND upcycle some things you’ll find around the house. Vertical growing is basically about using all that vertical space that you usually don’t think about. It reduces your food miles and helps you upcycle everyday household items. Time to look at that space differently!

Water Of The Future

This World Water Day, our Europe-wide campaign #waterofthefuture goes online 🎉
Everything we do has a water footprint.
💧 It takes 12,000 litres to produce a new cell phone.
💧 It takes 2,700 litres to make a single cotton t-shirt.
💧 In 2050, half of the world's population will be affected by water scarcity.
🐪 Camels are lucky: They can go up to three weeks without water. Us humans won't survive more than three days. We are not camels. Use water responsibly!
