Moon Walks

No sense howling at the Moon, he’s already on his way. Sadly we bid farewell to Dan Mooney this month as he moves off into the orbit, and employ, of Moonshine. The loss of our Northern Powerhouse is only somewhat mitigated by the aptness of his new employers name and some new arrivals of our own. But before moving on, …

Our tray systems are now available to the public! For those of you who haven’t just stampeded to our online store here’s what all the fuss is about.

Marvels of Malvern

Class will out, so they say, and so it proved at this years Malvern Autumn Show. If any of the CANNA Giant Vegetable entries at the Three Counties Show Ground embodied their grower’s titanic effort, skill and character then doubtless those veg would be the kin of Dale Toten. A high five of victories went the way of Ston Easton Hall’s superlative …

AutoPot in Denmark

If you like Denmark, or even if you don’t, Den-mark my words you might like this. With an opening gambit such as that you’d be disappointed if we took you anywhere but the aforementioned pastry peninsula. And who are we to lead you down the Lego brick road under false pretences. For the avoidance of doubt AutoPot visited Denmark this …

Micro Herb Growing with AutoPot Watering Systems

Gareth Cameron of the National Veg Society (NVS) recently got in touch with us regarding our Micro Herb Trials. In what can only be described as an inspired move he invited us to pen an article on our trials for the NVS’ “Simply Vegetables” Magazine. We thought it would be frankly criminal if we failed to share the devastatingly good article …

A Pioneering Spirit – AutoPot’s Dan Gulliver in the Western US

Las Vegas. Bright lights, big city. Very big city to our pint-sized pal Dan Gulliver, whose favour I shall now regain by respectfully including his title: AutoPot Business Development and Marketing Director. Yawn. Purpose of visit? Other than not getting lost / falling down plug holes, Dan was on an eagerly anticipated mission to call upon existing and potential customers …

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post afterwards to see if YOU appear in our photos throughout the newsletter.   The long, contemplative ritual of putting the AutoPot Summer Social to bed now draws to its tremulous conclusion – like the climax …

Seed To Lab

As we always say at AutoPot: no AutoPot Spain, no AutoPot gain! Our Spanish growers are involved in some of the most ambitious projects and face some of the toughest conditions in Europe. Proving the systems as a highly productive, efficient option in Spain is a huge deal for AutoPot and we’re happy to deploy our best staff to demonstrate …

Medwyn Williams – The Return!

The arduous drive from AutoPot HQ in Hampshire to Anglesey is mind-numbing at best. The M6, “soon to be a Smart Road”, should be renamed “a Smartless road”! BUT heading to see Medwyn’s of Anglesey (MoA) is the light at the end of the tunnel. Driving along the North Welsh coast this week, several hours before the sun was threatening to …
