Three raised planters of custom heights in use growing vegetables

What is 'Ergrownomics'?

Ergrownomics was born out of need to do better: to let everybody enjoy the benefits of home-growing – wherever they lived, with whatever space they had.

As seen at RHS Chelsea, 2021 | 5* Award-Winning

Growing your own can help spell an end to plastic pollution, food waste, and food shortages - and here at Ergrownomics, we genuinely believe that people want to make a difference. As a father and son team with backgrounds in soil science, we’ve designed our planters to do exactly that – letting you enact real change, whatever experience you have, wherever you happen to be. Home-growing isn’t intimidating – it’s amazing – and we’re on a mission to fast-track vegetable growing out of the past, introducing our own innovative functionality to modernise raised beds, and make vegetable gardening as clean, labour-saving and productive as possible – in even the smallest of spaces.

Ergrownomics planters are designed to fit anywhere, be it patios, balconies or greenhouses – so wherever you live – an Ergrownomics planter can help you make a change. By growing your own, you’re taking back ownership of what you eat – reducing packaging, lowering your carbon footprint, and going chemical free. Start your journey with us today, and enjoy eating freshly-picked, nutrient-rich and healthy produce from your very own vegetable plot!

What makes us special?

We’ve revolutionised Container Growing | Soil-scientist designed, class-leading functionality & sustainably hand-built in the United Kingdom.

Most raised planters are produced using (quick to decay) treated wood or injected-moulded plastic (brittle & usually from China). We’re different, and wanted to produce something that’s truly built to last. To that end, we manufacture everything in the UK, using rotationally moulded (food-safe) MDPE containers, brass, aluminium & galvanised steel components. It’s because of this that we’re able to offer a class-leading 10-year warranty, and a 50-year design life. What’s more, our ‘black planter’ is now made from re-grind plastic waste, every part of our product is recyclable, our packaging is compostable, and our delivery is carbon-neutral!

To keep the system as efficient as possible – we also include drip-irrigation, clean filter-drainage and a patented plant training system with our entire range; that’s on top of our unlimited Owners’ Area support, providing you with all the guidance you’ll need to succeed…After all. whoever said home-growing needed to be difficult or dirty work?
