BotaniCubes are most popular for growing…


BotaniCubes are grow cubes that have been specifically designed for the propagation of young salad plants, such as tomato, cucumber, aubergine or pepper. The growing media is natural, completely biodegradable and surrounded by a flexible netting so that the young roots can easily penetrate into the grow bag below. Botanicoir grow cubes minimise transplant shock and promote more rapid and dense rooting, while presenting no disposal problems. BotaniCubes are available in a range of sizes to suit individual needs.
