The Oasesbox is ideal for growing tomatoes. It is also very good for growing chilies, aubergines and cucumbers.
It is also ideal for other vegetables and herbs too, where a high quality is required.
How does it work?
The Oasesbox is a reservoir container with a cone insert in which a plant grows.
When the reservoir is filled with water and nutrients, a plant is able to take up water and nutrients whenever needed.
One of the biggest problems with growing tomatoes, is that when the soil dries out, plants are unable to take up nutrients.
This results in Blossom End Rot and other problems associated with nutrient deficiency and stress.
This is avoided with the Oasesbox because water and nutrients are available 24/7.
There are many benefits in using the Oasesbox self watering planter for growing tomatoes – here are just a few:
- You don’t need to water everyday but your plants still receive all the water and nutrients they require 24/7.
- Because plants are always kept happy with water and feed, they won’t become stressed and fall victim to disease and nutrient deficiencies. That means healthier plants, producing better quality and a greater yield of tomatoes.
- One of the most helpful benefits is that you can go on holiday and know that your plants are still watered and fed.
- Water and nutrients supplied 24/7 means less Blossom End Rot, less fruit cracking and splitting and a more consistant size of tomatoes to name just three benefits.
