elho awarded Which? Best Buy

Plant pot innovator elho has been awarded the prestigious Which? Best Buy for its bestselling green basics grow pot, it has revealed.

An essential in every retailer’s ‘grow your own’ offering, the popular product has topped the sustainable pots trial, receiving praise for being easy to use and clean, as well as providing plenty of space for roots to develop. Reviewers also remarked on how durable the pots were, noting that the range is frost resistant and UV stabilised to prevent fading and wear and tear.

Developed in partnership with professional growers, its design provides optimal aeration for roots and allows plants to absorb water when needed, making it the ideal solution for consumers looking to grow their own fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Competitively priced starting from just over £1, it is available in five stylish shades and comes in 12 sizes up to 40cm, including a pack of ten 8cm pots perfect for seedlings.

As with all elho products, the green basics grow pot is made from 100 percent recycled materials using renewable energy, including that generated by elho’s own wind turbine located at its headquarters in Tilburg, Holland.

David Nicholson, UK, NEU & ROW sales manager for elho, commented: “We’re incredibly excited to receive this accolade for our green basics grow pot.

“At elho, we are committed to developing practical plant pots that are also stylish and sustainable, encouraging more people to welcome nature into their lives. It is therefore wonderful to receive recognition from such a trusted and well-respected organisation as Which?, something which reaffirms our ongoing dedication to innovation and quality.

“I’d encourage any retailers interested in stocking the green basics range to get in touch with me to discuss further,” he added.

Which? is widely considered to be the UK’s consumer champion, providing completely independent reviews of a wide range of consumer products. Importantly, the organisation does not accept free products from manufacturers and all of its trials are fairly conducted through a rigorous testing system, providing expert recommendations that allow consumers to make confident choices.
