Gallery: The Patch is a Self-Watering Planter for Herbs and Greens


A new generation of gardeners are interested in growing their own food, and The Patch, a new self-watering planter, helps guide newbies through the process. The planter, which is designed for urban gardeners, solves the most common challenge for novice gardeners: over-watering. The Patch Planter is an easy, self-watering and flat-packable planter that addresses this issue by providing the plant with the perfect amount of water at all times — yielding more nutritious and delicious food. The planter is currently in the beta stage, but Let’s Patch is raising funds through Kickstarter to take its manufacturing process to the next level.

    More plastic for such a simple task as growing a salad indoors? And as simple as it would make it adding a humidifier, thermometer, internal computer and hygrometer these methods would simply create more e-waste, more plastic waste and simply be counter productive. And so would “the patch” that would add more plastic to the landfill.
