Plastecowood was approached by a leading UK manufacturer. Disappointed by the longevity of timber products and fed up with paying the price for renewing vegetable growing boxes, their client was seeking large volumes of growing boxes in recycled plastic. The brief was simple: long-life, robust, easy to clean, stackable open top boxes at an affordable price. In constant contact with damp soil and being watered regularly, it was also important that the product was resistant to infestation, hygienic,
moss and algae free.
Plastecowood designed and built a prototype, received approval and then produced over 1500 on time every time. To budget and deadline.
Bad news for Plastecowood sales team: no more orders! Product is still in place and going strong!

Vegetable growing boxes are handy pieces of equipment for every avid gardener. These boxes help you create a constrained and controlled environment for the growth of the healthiest vegetables. At Plastecowood we have created an entire range of environment-friendly gardening tools as part of our Smartawood™ line-up of products.
Here are a few frequently asked questions about our vegetable growing boxes that will help you make the right purchase decision.
How Do Vegetable Growing Boxes Help Me in Gardening?
If gardening is your passion, you already know that providing the right amount of water, sunlight and soil are critical for the growth of healthy plants. It is usually very difficult to control the composition of the soil in an open garden space. However, you can easily do so in a controlled environment. These boxes can help create the desired confined space for the growth of vegetables. You can easily mix the soil with the right quantity of fertilizers and stack it in the boxes with seeds.
What is So Special About Smartawood™ Products?
We have designed the entire range of Smartawood™ products on recycled plastic products. We collect a majority of our raw materials from households which tend to throw out plastic bottles and bags into the recycle bin. After the collection process, we clean the plastics to uplift the standards of hygiene. The cleaned plastics are then processed by large machines into growing boxes.
Can I Wash these Potato Growing Boxes?
You can easily clean the growing boxes using pressurized jet water. In fact, you can also clean them using detergents. The best part about using Plastecowood’s growing boxes is that they do not leach harmful chemicals into the soil. This way, you can provide a healthy environment for all your plants to grow.
Do I Need to Install the Potato Growing Boxes in a Garden?
No. You can easily use these growing boxes to create an indoor greenery. You can either choose to dig some earth and place the boxes in your garden or fill the boxes with healthy soil for planting purposes.
What Happens if the Boxes Rust and Decay?
Since the Smartawood™ products are made of non-biodegradable plastic materials; they will stay intact for years to come without any signs of decay or rust.
Check out the high-quality growing boxes from Plastecowood to provide a hygienic and controlled environment of growth for your plants. The boxes are great for indoor as well as outdoor gardening purposes.
