We first met Geoplanter owner and Geopot inventor, Dennis Hunter, at Grow Expo 2012 in Manchester. You can see his interview with Hydrowshow.tv at the link provided below. Since then the HYDROMAG team have taken delivery of a number of samples. We’ve taken the time to get familiar with them and, since we’re being honest, wore them as hats whilst doing Bill and Ben voices. They don’t work well as hats, but they do serve their purpose well.
The past couple of years have seen the industry flooded with Fabric Plant Containers (FPCs), tipped as the replacement for their stale old plastic cousins. FPCs are billed as being environmentally friendly, take up less storage space, utilise air pruning and, best of all, due to their longer lifespan they’re much better value for money in the long run. Unlike plastic pots they aren’t prone to cracking or shattering either. With all this in mind you have to wonder what’s stopping people from making the change to FPCs. God knows we could do with less plastic in our lives. So, how do Geopots stand out from their many competitors?
