Pot-mate is a simple yet great idea from hobby gardener
Phil Wilson has been a keen gardener all his life and he especially enjoys growing in pots and containers on his patio.
Over recent years he’s been troubled by several aspects of managing heavy pots in the garden and dissatisfied with traditional pot feet for several reasons.
That’s what drove him to design Pot-mate™. It’s a simple idea, but then lots of great ideas are. To begin with, Phil had some 3D printed models made of his design and used them to great success in his own garden.
Then he began to wonder if there might be a wider market for his idea?
Speaking with colleagues and neighbours and then researching more widely, it became clear that Pot-mate™ answers the same problems for all gardeners.
That’s when his journey from hobby gardener to entrepreneur began!
