Why the UrBin Grower?

The UrBin Grower is a compact self watering organic growing system perfect for the urban family. It can be used anywhere, anytime – a patio, balcony, fire escape, backyard, greenhouse, or even inside during the cold months. Its innovative design allows for portability, yet also encourages a bountiful harvest.

By utilizing the Square Foot Gardening Method, the UrBin Grower allows you to grow endless vegetables in a manageable container. The UrBin Grower's unique sub‐irrigation watering design waters plants the way nature intended - from the bottom up. Watering into the UrBin Grower’s visible reservoir allows you to monitor the water much more effectively than in other self‐watering containers, in which you must water through a tube into a hidden reservoir. The soil system wicks moisture up to the roots, drawing nutrients with it. The soil system also air prunes plants to keep the root growth constant and prevent root circling. With the constant exposure to oxygen you no longer need to worry about over‐watering either. The fresh air prunes the tip of the roots which causes them to branch off, creating an even healthier root system.

With the UrBin Grower, you can grow almost anything, anywhere: tomatoes, peppers, beans, corn, lettuce, herbs, squash, cabbage, onions, strawberries, ornamental plants and much more.
The UrBin Grower is a complete kit, including the container, soil separator, and watering tray.

How the UrBin Grower™ works

The UrBin Grower is uniquely designed to use capillary action to draw water up through soil and to take the guesswork out of watering. Plants take the water they need out of the visible reservoir. This way, you can see exactly how much or how little water your particular crops desire. This is a healthy, sustainable way to water your plants. As the water is drawn upwards through the soil into the root systems, it delivers essential nutrients to your plants rather than those nutrients being washed away when you water from above.

Simply place your UrBin Grower container on the watering tray and then place the soil separator in the container. The soil separator ensures that your soil is not saturated and you will never experience root rot.

"All of the vegetables I've tried have grown better in self watering containers than in traditional containers. Many actually grew better than in the earth garden." Edward C. Smith, Author of 'The Vegetable Gardener's Container Bible'
