At this point DO NOT add any water into the SmartReservoir.

Step 4

Place the access cover on the SmartReservoir and secure the Feeder Tray to the SmartReservoir.

Feeder tray

Insert the FeederMat through the hole in the Feeder Tray and sit the pot in position. Ensure the FeederMat is touching the bottom of the reservoir.

Repeat this with all pots.

1) Our Gardening Angels recommend using a standard multi-purpose compost, not a water-retaining/moisture-control or heavily fertilised one.

2) Fill the pots with compost while taking care to keep the FeederMat upright.

3) Firm the compost down around the FeederMat ensuring there is good contact between the FeederMat and the compost.

4) Make a hole in the compost large enough for your plant. Add your plant. Firm the compost down gently around the plant to settle the compost.

5) Water well using a watering can with a rose until the compost is moist but not saturated.


IMPORTANT: Do not add water to the SmartReservoir at this point.

Filling your pots


You will receive our award winning plant feed, Nutrigrow, with your Quadgrow, to use in your reservoir. It's specially formulated to provide your plants with essentials nutrients for healthier growth and bigger harvests! 


1) Add water to your Nutrigrow plant food bottles as indicated on the bottles.


2) Once the top of the compost is dry to the touch (a few days to a week) fill your SmartReservoir with water and nutrients using the dosage rates below.


3) DO NOT mix the nutrients together. It is important to add water to the watering can and then add the ‘A’ nutrients to the water followed by the ‘B’ nutrients.

Compost & feeding information

1) Use a standard multi-purpose compost, not a water-retaining/moisture-control or heavily fertilised one. Most compost contains nutrients.

2) Check your compost for how many weeks feed it contains, add nutrients from 1 week before the compost is due to run out of feed.

3) If your compost does not contain nutrients, start adding the nutrients from week one.

4) Dosage rates Add 6ml of nutrient ‘A’ and 6ml of nutrient ‘B’ to every 1 litre of water.

5) Top-up the SmartReservoir as necessary.

6) For best results keep the Quadgrows 30 Litre SmartReservoir fully topped-up when you're not on holiday.
