3D printing has enabled designer Evan Gant to take the manufacturing process into his own hands for the creation of some useful garden accessories.

1) 3D-Printed Aqueduct Planters

You don't need a plot of land to grow plants. A lot of plants can be adapted to growing in a pot. Gant's 3D printed mini planter system allows for the creation of unique configurations. "Water is shared through the system, flowing from the top planters into the bottom, saturating the soil of each plant along the way. These planters are perfect for air plants, succulents, or any small plant that requires little soil." Made up of 10 planters, 3 double-channel planters and 7 single-channel planters, it can be assembled in all sorts of configurations.

You can now get them on Shapeways for €69.77, individual planters are also available for €8.37 (Single Channel) and €9.30 (Double Channel).

2) 3D-Printed Sprout

3D printed sprout allows for the repurposing of plastic milk jugs into useful watering cans. You can fill the bottle from the top, and the ball in the middle blocks the water as you pour so that it becomes a watering can. It is available now on Shapeways for €17.83.
