Urban Gardening

From busy metropolises like Paris, Tokyo and New York sprouts the idea of kitchen gardens cultivated in tiny backyards, on rooftops and even within private flats. Big cities’ residents want to enjoy the food they have grown themselves.


This spring, Holmegaard meets all design-loving plant enthusiasts with the self-watering plant glass Gaia. Its innovative, user-centered design was created by US glassware designer Aric Snee. Gaia Plant glass gives you a helping hand to ensure your fresh herbs will get the exact amount of water they need.

Tips & Tricks - Gaia

  • Moisturizing the knot will make spreading the soil easier.
  • Make sure that the knot is vastly spreaded in the upper bowl. 
  • Just after planting you might water top layer of the soil but only once.
  • Make it tight so the can soil cling to the inner walls.
  • Make sure that reservoir has a lot of water, especially just after planting. Don’t worry plant will consume only as much water as it needs to.
  • Knot can be easily rinsed and washed. It won’t rot as it’s made of artificial fibers.
