The Vertigro wall panel is set to be introduced at Glee, and is aimed at consumers and retailers alike.
The product is a galvanised wire basket, containing a plastic lining tray with built-in irrigation, topped with a Corex plastic lid featuring 16 holes for 40ml plug plants. The panels can be used as a modular system, to form high-impact plant displays at retail outlets.
Wolf Wall Systems director Ian Wolfenden is developing the product on behalf of KinderGarden at Ball Colegrave. The firms are negotiating with B&Q and Thompson & Morgan over supplies of Vertigro.
