I have not purchased seedlings from all of these providers. I have purchased from two of them. So I can’t offer any personal commentary on most of the following list. Their are several positive reviews on the Tower Garden Facebook page.

These are certified Future Growing Tower Garden Farms, which means they grow seedlings specifically for Tower Gardens. (i.e. they’re already growing in rockwool cubes, so you don’t have to wash dirt off the roots before transplanting).

Tower Tip: If you choose to purchase seedlings from a local nursery instead, select only those with perfectly formed leaves and no evidence of bug presence. Damage leaves typically means plants have been sprayed for pests.

Providers that ship seedlings and offer on-site pick up:

Living Towers, Eustis, Florida

Montecito Urban Farms, Santa Barbara, Califorina

ATL Urban Farms, Cumming, Georgia

Nature Crisp, Soperton, Georgia

True Garden, Mesa, Arizonia

Providers that offer on-site pickup only:

Santa Barbara Urban Farms, Santa Barbara, California

Chapala Gardens, Santa Barbara, California

So Cal Urban Farms, San Diego, California

Iron Towers, Middletown, Connecticut

Sunrise Hydroponics Amish Farm. Available Saturday mornings at: South Bend Farmers Market, 1105 Northside Blvd, South Bend, IN 46615.

Researchers Confirm Superior Yield of Tower Garden

Researchers at the University of Mississippi have confirmed what experienced Tower Gardeners everywhere already know: Tower Garden by Juice Plus+ yields more produce, more quickly than traditional soil-based gardening.

Tower Garden by Juice Plus+ grows more, faster.

Researchers have confirmed that the Tower Garden by Juice Plus+ grows more, faster than conventional gardens.

The researchers grew eight different vegetables and herbs – tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, squash, chard, green basil, parsley, and red kale – side-by-side, in Tower Gardens and in the soil. They planted both sets of crops on the same day, and also later harvested samples of healthy, mature crops on the same day for analysis. The total yield of each crop was calculated and compared between the field-grown plants and Tower Garden-grown plants.

The Tower Garden yielded substantially more produce in every single case, generating 30% more produce on average than the soil-based crops over the same time period. The yield improvement varied from 7% more in the case of cucumber to a 65% greater yield with red kale, as shown below:

Red kale                                              65% greater yield

Bell pepper                                         53% greater yield

Squash                                                 50% greater yield

Cherry tomatoes                            35% greater yield

Parsley                                                21% greater yield

Basil                                                    19% greater yield

Chard                                                    8% greater yield

Cucumber                                             7% greater yield

These yields just confirm what all experienced Tower Gardener’s  already know: That the Tower Garden grows more fresh fruit and vegetables, faster, than traditional gardening. Study also confirmed that in many cases you can harvest and consume your fresh produce more times during each growing season, which allows Tower Garden to pay for itself even more quickly!
