Our MARA planter system is elegant, robust and adaptable to different spaces, indoors and outdoors. Made of lightweight alloy they can be powder-coated to any colour or finish in the Dulux Powder-Coating Colour Range.
Once we have installed the MARA and your chosen garden all you have to do is water and feed it. It has a tube that goes to a porous reservoir at its bottom with 80mm of pumice on either side, which takes about 10 litres of water. Within 2-3 weeks your new plants' roots will be pulling up the water they need to grow. This is called a wicking system. Even at the height of summer you should only need to refill your reservoir every three weeks or so, when the growing mix starts to feel dry.
While your plants are small and still developing their root systems you will need to water them around the base once or twice daily, ideally in the morning and at night for 2-3 weeks. Once your garden is established you can safely go away for up to three weeks knowing it will continue to thrive.
If you have bought and are using a Bokashi system you can add the nutrient solution (Bokashi tea) that this gives you at a rate of 1:100 to the water you pour into your reservoir. Otherwise we highly recommend using Kings Plant Barn Ocean Grow and seaweed booster.
