Dec. 3, 2009 – By far, the main reason most people say they don’t garden is because of a lack of time. But now, with the 30 Second Planter™ from Proven Winners, it is both easy and fun to create a beautiful container garden.

The 30-Second Planter was first test-marketed by Proven Winners’ propagator Four Star Greenhouse as Pop, Drop and Grow in 2008. Check out the video below.

George Strimpel, director of marketing for Four Star Greenhouse, explains that “this solution had such strong sell-through the first year, we knew that it was going to be a home-run product for Proven Winners and their customers.

The reason for its success is simple; it provides a solution for consumers who don’t have the time or experience to garden. It’s also a great solution for consumers who want to enjoy an already proven and tested combination without having to search for the various plants separately. No gloves or garden tools are needed – just fill your decorative container with soil, remove the bottom of the 30-Second Planter, drop it in your container – and you’re done.”

The 30-Second Planter is a unique patented product from Proven Winners that allows consumers to easily remove the bottom of a biodegradable fibre container and then place it directly into a decorative container filled with soil – no digging necessary. The fibre container features Proven Winners plants in various combinations and, once the bottom is removed, it is then placed – or easily dropped – on top of the solid surface of the consumer’s final container. The plant’s roots then grow directly into the soil of the finished container – creating a quick, beautiful container garden.
