Jumpstart a Home Garden with Click and Grow

View all 7 Photos

Click and Grow is a young company based in Estonia. Their initial line of gardening products was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2013, and they have received many good reviews since. Today, their Smartpots, Smart Herb Garden, refills, and germination lamp are available on the market.

The Smartpot and Smart Herb Garden are the two planter designs. Though their “smart” branding suggests otherwise, they do not connect with other devices. Nonetheless, they do come packed with some helpful technology.

Firstly, each seed is nurtured with water, light, and nutrient-enriched soil for a germination rate of close to 100%. The seeds come pre-planted in Smart Soil, a nano material growth medium with an airy “chamber structure” for enhanced root aeration. The substance is light, clean to touch, and pre-fertilized so that there is no need to add nutrients. Housed in a sleek white box with a built-in LED lamp, the soil is mess-free, allowing users to place the design anywhere.

With Click and Grow, the home gardening doesn’t even have to water the soil directly. Instead, one simply fills and refills the H20 chamber as indicated by the growing system. The water is then wicked into the Electronic Precision Irrigation (EPI) for Smartpots or the Capillary Precision Irrigation (CPI) system for Smart Herb Gardens. Though their methods vary, the EPI and CPI both control moisture in the soil, releasing water in mediated amounts at specific times.
Great for beginners and busy nature lovers, Click and Grow’s Smart collection is made for people who don’t don’t have time to mess up and can invest a chunk of money in their home garden. The kits can be used to cultivate flowers, herbs, and fruits such as painted nettle, basil, and strawberry, all with very little user effort. The starter bundles are priced from approximately $80-105, and the refills cost around $7-20. All of the items are available online from Click an Grow.
