Incredibly simple yet stunningly effective, each tomato plant halo (currently available in green only and supplied in packs of 3) is pushed into a planting hole cut in the plastic skin of a grow bag and features a watering moat around the outside of the central planting hole; just top this outer ring up with water, apply liquid feed to the centre hole and the two sets of roots which develop - water and feed searching - will do the rest! Six hollow plastic spikes reach down into the grow bag soil and send the 3 litres of water the moat can hold right where it's required, taking 3-5 hours to empty the reservoir.
No more flooding your growbag and washing out soil; these heaven-sent halos will tidy your grow bag growing operation right up and with colour coded cane tops also available to hold your plant supporting bamboo canes (not supplied) firmly in position, your greenhouse, patio, decking, roof terrace or decking will never have looked so good.

The tomato plant pots arrived as promised, they have been very successful, so far in providing the right medium in which to grow.
Using for outdoor tomatoes and various squash type plants, in grow bags and raised beds. Clever design. Finding that make it easier to establish the small plants and keep slugs away. Watering so much easier.
I have been using the green ones for years, but these no longer seem to be available. These are a little bigger in diameter, and as I use one 6' metal cane for support, the support to hold this in place squashes the new halo and distorts the shape. Otherwise as expected.
Our horticulturist says;"There are plenty of growbag growing ideas and solutions on the market but this is one of the best.
By applying liquid feed to the inner planting ring and water to the outside, you encourage two sets of roots to develop and as water is delivered deep down in the growbag soil, your tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, beans or whichever plants you choose to grow will develop an extensive root system.
For even more impressive plants, double up on your available soil by placing another growbag underneath. Then cut the botttom of the top bag, the top of the bottom one and the roots will grow down into the lower bag - and more soil means bigger roots, bigger plants and bigger yields!"

Top Pick - Best for Grow Bags. These are great for giving extra growing depth to plants such as tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and aubergines. It's simply a matter of putting them in place, adding compost to the inner container and water to the outer reservoir. There are integrated slots for canes if needed. With three in a pack these are very good value for money.
