Bernie's Barrow Stand 19
One day, while enjoying a coffee at a Garden Centre Cafe, I observed staff struggling to move a large potted tree. I visited Nurseries and saw the same struggles which got me thinking. Using the awesome large wheels from Bernie’s Barrow, The Ultimate Extra Large Wheel Barrow, I created a prototype Large Pot and Plant Mover which I showed here in 2019. In 2020, I revised the prototype design, taking on board feedback from interested parties; now formally launching Bernie’s Pot and Plant Mover.
Visit me on Stand 19 to view and try out this new product. Delight your staff and stop the big pot and plant moving struggle.

We will be promoting water bladder storage primarily as an option for storing water for irrigation. We will have samples of the water bladders on site.
Whether you want to fill the bladder using roof water or from other sources these bladders are easy to connect into your current or future irrigation systems.
Manufactured in France, Vortex bladders are used extensively around the world in the horticultural industry to store water, and are tried and proven in all climates and locations around the world.
• Stored in a bladder, water is not subject to the amount of evaporation caused by the sun and wind as it would be in an open pond or tank.
• Water is fully enclosed in a bladder, which keeps it clean and free from foreign matter, and from interference by birds and animals.
• A bladder is a better option than an open pond from a health and safety point of view, and does not need to be fenced.
• Bladders come in a wide range of sizes to suit your requirements
Vortex Bladders are very easy to install. They can be packed up and stored or moved to another location, which is a big plus if they are not needed all year round. With a low profile they blend into their surroundings on your property, and can be easily landscaped in to minimise their visual impact.
No building permits or consents are required when installing the bladders. All they need is a level 100mm sand base.
Vortex Bladders are made of technical textile coated PVC with anti-UV treatment. They are assembled by high frequency welding which gives them great strength and resistance. They come with valves, reinforced corners, overflow fitting, a filling elbow, and an inspection hatch. All of these are pre-assembled in the factory to avoid any risk of leakage.
Our website www.precisede.co.nz has a range of information on water storage.
