With drought concerns nationwide, particularly in the Midwest, now more than ever demand for self-wateringplanters is increasing. DMC recognizes that the Earth Planter line offers the best extended care self-wateringplanter available. The patent-pending design is the result of ten years in research developing the technologyto create its unique wick system that provides consistent delivery of water to the plant’s roots. While other so-called “self-watering” planters on the market require 8-12 weeks of traditional daily watering to establish rootgrowth and reach the water reservoir, the Earth Planter begins providing “self-watering” immediately by bringingthe water to the roots. Now consumers can go days, weeks, even months without watering their plants. Eachplanter’s reservoir holds plenty of water for extended periods. They also include an overflow to release extrawater during periods of rain, thus preventing overwatering.
Bo-Mer Plastics recognizes the strength DMC has in the marketplace with their quality products. “It is a greatextension for DMC to enter the growing segment of self-watering planters”, says Tom Herbert, president of Bo-Mer Plastics. Mr. Herbert also stated that “DMC has a great brand and distribution model in place, particularly inthe growing e-commerce segment of their business where they have the facility and operation to provide directfulfillment nationwide through its online retailers”.
DMC also plans to work with Bo-Mer to develop self-watering inserts for their existing products as well, thusproviding the consumer with a wide range of planters that feature this amazing technology.
