A series of Glowpear planters were installed at renowned Sydney restaurant Lotus Barangaroo, providing a place for organic herbs and spices to be grown under the guise of decorative greenery. What are the benefits of this product?
Lotus Dining is the brainchild of Sydney culinary innovator Michael Jiang. Michael dreamed of owning restaurants that conjured childhood food memories, born from his Chinese heritage. A marriage of cooking excellence and creativity led to the creation of Lotus Dumpling Bar, one of the best Chinese restaurants in Sydney.
From humble beginnings, Lotus Dining has grown to six restaurants and is one of the most revered hospitality groups in Sydney, mixing innovation with creativity and exemplary dining experiences.
Three Glowpear Café Planters were specified for a ‘mixology kitchen garden’ at Lotus Barangaroo. The planters grow organic chilli, shiso, lemongrass and Vietnamese mint to provide garnishes for exotic cocktails and dishes.
Café Planters offer flexibility for Lotus, acting as a greenspace and hedging for guests by day while being securely rolled in at night from the Barangaroo waterfront promenade.
The Glowpear Café Planter includes the following features:
Integrated self-watering system | Just top up the reservoir and your plants will take the water they need as they need it. Simple.
Water level indicator | So you can see if you need to water at a glance.
Sturdy, considered construction | The Café Planter’s frame is sustainable Accoya pine, which is both hard-wearing and good looking. The remainder is made of injection-moulded HDPE, which is UV and corrosion resistant, BPA-free, food-safe and recyclable.
Mobile and secure | It’s easy to wheel around and securely stays in position. Move it to take advantage of the sun, or wheel indoors at night – whatever you and your plants prefer.
Raised design | This means you can pick, prune and water your garden without having to bend over.
