"We're excited about a new line of PREMIUM SELF-WATERING PLANTERS by the German company Lechuza (from $24.95 through www.lechuza.ca). They have a sub-irrigation system built in, so you can leave your house for a month and come back to healthy plants and flowers. You can use them indoors or out. And they're super-light, so they work well on balconies for condo-dwellers, too."
