I have just bought this Plant food Maker but was very disappointed with it. It is very fiddly to put together and very hard. You need a lot of strenght to clip the handle and basket together and I could not do it. I got my son over to do it for me which was fine but when I came to fill it up with greenery today I did not have the strength to seperate the basket and handle so unless you are strong and feel you could cope with this then I would advise against buying this product.

    Imagine being able to make 4 litres of high strength plant food every few weeks, just from using your food scraps and grass cuttings! You’ll never need to buy plant food again if you have your own maker. Simple to use, just add garden and green leafed kitchen scraps, water and mix with the built-in aerator.

    With a regular stir the liquid plant food will be ready in around 3 weeks, and you can decant it straight from the keg – if a weaker-strength liquid is needed, just add more water. Your plants will never have felt so good!

    27 x 25 x 50cm H. (10¾" x 10" x 19¾").

    Thank you for placing your review and taking the time to discuss this with us today. We're sorry the Plant Food Maker has been difficult to use. The clips are quite robust to cope with our English weather and agree a degree of strength is needed. We're happy we've been able to resolve this for you.

    "Intrigues the neighbours"
    Julie

    20 July 2012

    This is a good looking niffty little plant food maker. My neighbours have been intrigued by it. I found it relatively easy to put together except the lid for the can. The two lugs didn't want to go into the holes with hand pressure, so I used a wooden mallet and gave it a couple of whacks which did the trick. Personally I would have liked the body to be attached to the base in some way or sitting deeper than it does, as the amount of liquid does not make a lot of weight and with our windy/gales weather it could be toppled. So a very sheltered spot is needed. Other than that it is a great item.

    "Good concept, poor delivery"
    Mrs Kerr

    11 July 2013

    I bought this as I really liked the idea of making my own plant food. The item looks ok, is a good size, but..... as others have said its quite difficult to use. The catch on the lid needs a hard tug to remove it.The inside spindle is impossible to remove where it is supposed to click into the basket. I ended up leaving it in place, which makes filling the basket very awkward. The basket itself which takes the plant material is difficult to fit together and almost impossible to undo. Finally the tap leaks constantly.
