Use capillary matting in the greenhouse (our greenhouse staging is ideal) to water plants economically and (almost) automatically, as this versatile material absorbs and holds water which can be drawn up by soil in pot plants positioned on the matting.
This process is known as capillary watering and keeping the capillary matting moist will allow your plants to fend for themselves in the height of summer. The capillary matting is available in 61cm (24") width and is supplied by the metre.
To Order:- Simply decide on the number of metres required and add this to the quantity box. The total price will then be calculated and you can then add to basket.
The capillary matting is easy to cut with scissors or a knife, is sold in metre lengths and can be used with the dark or light side uppermost. The white surface will reflect light and heat in the summer months to help ripen fruit and the darker surface - which varies between dark green, grey and black - attracts and retains heat during cooler periods.

I was looking for matting to put into trays that I could stand pots and seed trays on whilst away on holiday, the matting supplied worked very well all plants survived.
