What is an Urban Cultivator

The Urban Cultivator is an all-in-one automated indoor kitchen garden that allows you to grow fresh microgreens and herbs 365 days a year in your home or business. 

This unique lifestyle appliance is designed to create the optimal growing conditions. No green thumbs required! Your cultivator will take control of all variables that affect the growth of your plants; watering, light, oxygen, temperature, humidity, nutrients and PH level of water all taken care of.

Cultivating just requires some TLC to keep your microgreens on track and oodles of enthusiasm and creativity to bring them to life in your kitchen.

Now it’s easier than ever to prepare and enjoy healthy, delicious meals with greens grown in your own space.

No pesticides are required when you’re growing with an Urban
Cultivator. You’re in complete control of what you grow. And our seeds are 100%
organic too. Food you can trust.

Zero Mile Diet

Did you know the average distance food travels from farm to plates is 1.500miles –
think about the resources just to bring us one meal! And let’s leave the food waste conversation for another day. That’s why the zero mile diet works with an Urban Cultivator. It allows you to grow delicious, healthy food all year round that is kinder to our planet from the comfort of your kitchen space.

100 Trees planted with every Urban Cultivator
Yep, you read that right! 100 trees planted for every Urban Cultivator order placed – thank you to our friends at Ecologi.

Sometimes it’s hard to throw your hat in the ring with a company that you don’t know anything about.


That’s why we’ve created The Intelligent Appliances Way. It’s a step by step guide to exactly what you”ll get from us at every stage of the journey.


We’re here to bring a bit of sunshine into your life – we’ve got you via phone, email or live chat with any questions, feedback you may have about the Urban Cultivator or simply to say hello!

Who buys these machines?

Individuals, couples, families, health enthusiasts, cooking professionals, wannabe chefs and foodies – anyone who wants the freshest, most nutrient-rich microgreens grown right in their own kitchen.


How long does it take to grow the plants?

It depends. Some plants such as radish and pea shoots take about a week. Others may take up to four weeks. You don’t need to wait the full growth duration before you harvest. Once harvested your microgreens are best used within 3 days to ensure the maximum nutritional value. They can be frozen.

Check out our harvesting guide for full details on how to get the best from your microgreens


What kind of soil do I need?

You can grow in traditional soil, however after trial and testing we have found the most successful growing occurs using Coco soil blocks or with our soil-less grow mat, depending on the type of plant. Please avoid using peat soil where possible as this releases a million tonnes of CO2 every year.

Check out our grow guide for full details on what growing material works best with each plant variety


What if I know nothing about gardening?

No problem. This intelligent appliance does it all for you! Just plant your seeds, start the program and your Urban Cultivator will do the rest. We want you to get the most out of your investment, so we’ll be on hand every step of the way and here to talk in whatever way suits you best.


How big is this appliance?

The Urban Cultivator is 604mm in width – just like the size of a standard appliance, i.e. a dishwasher.


There is also the Urban Cultivator XL which is the size of a commercial fridge (1658mm) – perfect for larger kitchens and use in commercial spaces like restaurants.


Why do we love the Urban Cultivator? / What makes the Urban Cultivator an Intelligent Appliance?

The Urban Cultivator provides everyone with a new and easy way to grow their own microgreens and herbs to support a healthy and organic diet all year round. By making fresh and nutritious food choices you can be assured that your plants grown in the Urban Cultivator are organic and free from any nasties. By investing in an Urban Cultivator, you’re helping to correct the flawed mass-produced food system, taking your home-grown produce from field to plate and actively reducing your carbon footprint with a zero-mile food diet.


What warranty comes with an Urban Cultivator?

All Intelligent Appliances, including the Urban Cultivator, are covered by our mind-boggling 5-year warranty


Can I plant more that one seed variety in a tray?

Yes. As long as you plant seed types that require the same growing conditions you can sew two varieties in one tray. See our growing guide for more details.


How do I clean my Urban Cultivator?

Avoid any household or commercial cleaners on your Urban Cultivator. Remember you’re growing food so treat with care.


Can I use the Urban Cultivator outside?

No. Please don’t. This appliance won’t respond well to being placed in extreme temperatures. It’s best placed inside.


What if I need to know more?

We leap out of bed each and every morning to help our customers. We’re here to talk in whatever way suits you best (phone, live chat, video call, email, candle-light dinner)

Need to make more space for an Urban Cultivator?

Your unwanted appliances (and furniture) doesn’t need to go to the great scrapheap in the sky (or down to your local tip).  If you need to make space for an Urban Cultivator the lifesavers at Emmaus can help. Find out more how it works.

" The absolutely freshest greens possible for 80% less? One of the smartest decisions I ever made."

Ned Bell – YEW Restaurant Four Seasons Vancouver

The sustainable revolution for your business

If you’re one of our saviours in restaurants and catering, you probably want to know the fisherman who catches your fish and the name of queen bee in charge of the honey hive, so just imagine blowing people’s mind when you harvest your own greens from the Urban Cultivator in front of their very eyes.

It’s the zero mile diet on their plate. You’ll spend way less, it’s way more fresh, packed with flavour and you choose what you cook with all year round.

We’d love to have you on board for the sustainable restaurant revolution.

Grow your business with Intelligent Leasing

We’ve partnered with Tower Leasing Ltd to give businesses access to equipment that you need in order to grow, without the need for large capital outlays. Rather than paying the full order value to us here at Intelligent Appliances (as you would do by purchasing outright), instead, you make pre-agreed rental payments to use the equipment for an agreed amount of time, generally between two to five years.

And with savings on corporation tax, personalised terms, appliance upgrades as required, and 100% offset against your tax liability what are you waiting for?
