Grow fresh food and vegies at home or work

Self watering planter boxes with wicking beds and vertical garden systems.


I love it

My Orto planter box with the wicking system gives me the opportunity to grow my own food on a tiny balcony. It looks great planted with tomatoes and lettuces; is well constructed; a terrific concept and I love it

Perfect for my small garden

Very happy with my Rustic Orto planter. Nick was a pleasure to deal with, lots of helpful advice. Looking forward to some homegrown tomatoes and snow peas. Thanks Nick

The self watering aspect has been a dream.

Perfect rustic look planter box. We purchased an Orto planter box a few months back and have been extremely pleased with it. We're located in Sydney so had to coordinate an interstate delivery but Nick was great to work with and made sure the box got here safely. It was easy to finalise assembly and prepare for use based on the instructions provided. Our plantings have been growing well over this time and the self watering aspect has been a dream, including over a 2 week period we were away on holidays. I highly recommend the Orto planter box.

Awesome Customer Service

Thanks Nick for replying so quickly to my new enquiry and advice on how I could fit them in. From ordering to delivery a great experience, couldn't be happier with my planter boxes and very excited to start growing tomatoes and veggies.

Perfect for our balcony

My husband set up one of these with cos lettuces, kale, spinach and broccoli for my birthday in July and we’ve loved it so much we recently bought a second! We’ve loved eating the vegetables we’ve grown on our apartment balcony and it is so easy if we go away for the weekend! We’ve just planted tomatoes, snow peas and herbs in our new box and they are already taking off! Makes our balcony look amazing as well!

I couldn’t recommend this more, so easy to use and Nick was a pleasure to deal with, and very easy to communicate with, responding very quickly to questions.

Thanks Nick!

Great Fun

After taking delivery of my two planters the fun started with placing soil and planting some herbs and veg seedlings - well its been a couple of weeks and I am thrilled to say plants have double in size - what a joy

We've just wrapped up three days of exhibiting at the Sustainable Living Festival in  Melbourne's Federation Square.

It's been a great opportunity to showcase the Orto brand to an environmentally aware audience as well the thousands of people just passing by on the way to the MCG.

Tomato time...use 50% less water by planting your tomatoes in a Orto planter with wicking bed.

Tomato time...use 50% less water by planting your tomatoes in a Orto planter with wicking bed.

Growing tomatoes at home can be really easy even if you don't have a established garden. You can put a Orto self watering planter box any surface and make an instant garden. The wicking bed keeps the soil at optimum moisture level for maximum growth and the overflow outlet means you can't over water and kill your plants. The sooner your get started the sooner your are eating your own fresh home grown tomatoes.
