5. Speaking of hanging pots, if customers want to reduce the mess from those pesky pot spillages then Vuba Easihold Spray is a must buy – the spray locks gravel into place, creating a permeable layer to water through while eliminating gravel and soil spillages in pots and can be used indoors or outside.
