Why should I buy a Tower Garden?

Tower Garden

Kids Love Tower Gardens

  • Schools & science projects around the country are having fun with aeroponic gardening.

Small Space – No Problem

  • With your own Vertical Tower Garden you join the fastest growing agricultural movement – people growing their own vegetables whether you own land or not.
  • Land usage is minimal – a balcony will do!

Extend Your Growing Season

  • University of Arizona coined the term “Controlled Environment Agriculture.” If you give plants spring time conditions at any time of the year – sunshine or grow lights, 17 important minerals, water, and air – then the plant will happily thrive.
  • Reduce time to harvest – from seed to edible food is two to four times faster with an aeroponic Tower Garden.

Practice good growing practices

  • “It prevents water runoff and land degradation that can result from careless watering and gardening practices.” – Seattle Times
  • Join the locovore movement
  • Reduce carbon footprint – as little as 5%  of the water is needed as compared to traditional farming.

Grow Safe Food

  • Aeroponically grown food above ground reduces exposure to roaming rodents and earth bound critters.
  • Save time as there is no need to wash aeroponically grown food.
  • Avoid the use of organic pesticides and fertilizers.
  • Touted as “Beyond organic.”

Our experience is that within one to two years, you can become an expert aeroponic gardener and supply your neighbors with food or start own own CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program.

Starter Plants: Experience success right away with lettuces and there are so many varieties to choose from. In as little as 6 weeks from planting seeds, you could be enjoying the best tasting lettuces you have ever had. Herbs like dill, parsley, mint, oregano and cilantro also grow quite easily. Edible flowers add color to your garden and your salad. Kale is easy to grow throughout the year.  Swiss chard, peas, pumpkins, cucumber and zucchini also grow easily.

For the Intermediate Aeroponic Gardener: Expand your herb garden and grow basil in the Pacific Northwest! Be the first this season to grow ripe tomatoes in your neighborhood. Learn how to get your plants to have sex and grow acorn and other squashes.  Peppers that grow well here: jalapeno, fireball , cayenne, Anaheim,  and bell peppers. Other plants to play with are mustard greens, endive, cauliflower, broccoli, and strawberries.

For the Seasoned Aeroponic Expert: Expand further with garden beans, Brussels sprouts, eggplant, cucumbers,  celery,  butternut squash, rhubarb, spaghetti squash, patty pan squash , watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, bok choy and spinach. Try your hand at hops and brew some beer for the fun of it!

Tower Garden Strawberry Crop

Tower Garden

I planted strawberries in one Tower Garden late this year. Being a full time collage student this growing season made my time for gardening much less than in the past. The Tower Garden helped me to grow my vegetables with much less time and effort, which was a great blessing. I purchased strawberry plants at a local nursery. These where plants started in soil, not the rock wool inserts used in the Tower Garden. I took the plants out of the plastic holder pots and began to very slowly with gentle water spray bottle begin to wash the dirt from the roots of the plants. Be very careful doing this. A plants main roots have many very fine roots coming off of them. These fine roots are what bring the nutrients into the plant. When washing the dirt away, no matter how careful you are, many of these fine roots are lost. When you replant into the rock wool the plant will go into shock for up to two weeks, before it begins to grow. That is the reason why I prefer to use plant starts that I began from seed in the rock wool in my window still or greenhouse; or that I purchased online.

When planting starts as big as these strawberries cut the rock wool in half, put the roots in it, than wrap a rubber band around the rock wool to hold it together. The roots on my strawberry starts where so long that they hung out about 4 inches beyond the rock wool. I had to cut a hole in the Tower Garden Net Basket to pass the roots though. I found that a pair of wire cutting pliers worked well for this.

It took my strawberries about two weeks to recover from the shock of having the dirt removed. I was worried at first that I had damaged them too much and they where not going to recover. I kept watching them and than they started to grow. Once they started to grow they just kept on growing. We have been picking berries off the vines for over a month now as we pick, new berries have been forming!  Just amazing!
