What are SMARTPOTZ?
The Welsh social enterprise Ultraponix have created the innovative SMARTPOTZ; a pot which ensures your poinsettia will receive all the water and nutrients required to maximise the plant’s health and longevity. Perfect for those of us who will be busy over the Christmas season. Best of all the pot can be reused for other plants or herbs at a later stage.
Tŷ Hafan and Ultraponix
Tŷ Hafan has joined forces with social enterprise Ultraponix who develop innovative solutions to horticulture which can help even the laziest of gardeners become green fingered. Not only have we been working on income generation ideas, Tŷ Hafan’s hospice garden has been in bloom all summer thanks to Ultraponix technology enabling flowers to withstand the heatwave. Tŷ Hafan families got involved gardening and we even had our own source of sweetcorn!
This success did not go unnoticed and the Ultraponix products are now being explored as a solution to provide small scale and sustainable food production within the Townships of South Africa. It is exciting to see research and development in South Wales potentially having global impacts and Tŷ Hafan is delighted to be a founding charity partner of the project.
