Keeping Tower Garden Cool in Summer Heat

Here are some tips on how you can keep your Tower Garden cool in the summer heat.

Keeping Tower Garden cool in summer heat

Raise your Tower Garden off the ground.

By lifting your Tower Garden off the ground you reduce the transfer of heat from the ground, or any other surface, into the reservoir. The Tower Garden Dolly not only raises the reservoir off the ground, but also allows you to easily move it.

Add frozen water bottles to the water reservoir.

Any temperature of 85 degrees or above will put your Tower Garden’s plants into distress. When experiencing high temperatures you can lower water temperature by adding frozen water bottles or a bag of ice to the water reservoir. Frozen water bottles are reusable. They can be put back in the freezer and refroze for use again. Plants do best when the water temperature is keep between 65 and 70 degrees.

Protect your plants from midday heat stress.

Move your Tower Garden into the shade or cover your plants when it is hot. During periods of extreme heat, plants are being stressed when temperatures are above 85 degrees. The plants will literally begin to cook! They need more water as they deal with the loss of water by evaporation through their leaves. If you are not able to move your Tower Garden into the shade than cover it. Use a row cover cloth that you can purchase from a garden supply store or the Tower Garden Weather Protection Blanket.

Aeroponic Gardening 5 Research Backed Benefits

Aeroponic Gardening Tower Garden

Aeroponic Gardening is now available to the average gardener. It is no longer only for commercial use. The introduction of the Tower Garden Growing System has made gardening practical for those with little or no land to garden. Today even if you live in an apartment building with only a balcony on an upper floor you can still garden.

There are many compelling reasons to grow your own food. Quality of the food, fun of gardening, growing organic….the list goes on. So it’s really no surprise that more than 1 in every 3 (approximately 42 million) American households have gardens.

Growing your own food in your backyard isn’t necessarily as simple as sticking a seed into the ground. There are important details to consider, including how much you will be able to grow, sustainability, safety and more – particularly when deciding how to grow your on food.

Sticking a seed in the ground may not always be your best option. But Tower Garden and the aeroponic technology it uses just might be. Here are 5 reasons why, backed by research.

Grow up to 30% more food 3x faster with less space, water and hassle using the Tower Garden Growing System.

1. Tower Garden can increase yields by an average of 30%.

The University of Mississippi compared product yield of crops grown in aeroponic growing systems and in soil. Researchers found the yields of plants grown with aeroponic technology were more than 30% bigger on average. Here’s the breakdown by crop:

  • Basil – 19% increase
  • Chard – 8% increase
  • Red kale – 65% increase
  • Parsley – 21% increase
  • Bell pepper – 53% increase
  • Cherry tomatoes – 35% increase
  • Cucumber – 7% increase
  • Squash – 50% increase

On a side note, the study also measured total phenolics, flavonoids and antioxidants in the produce grown. It turns out aeroponic and soil methods yield produce with comparable nutritional value.

2. Plants grow up to 3x more quickly.

According to NASA, plants grow up to 3x faster in aeroponic growing systems compared to growing in soil. Plus, yields are more consistent, and, with grow lights, year-round growing is possible.

3. Tower Garden uses as much as 98% less water.

Traditional agriculture uses approximately 80% of our water. This is a serious problem, especially for western states, where water is already in short supply. The good news? NASA found that aeroponic technology uses up to 98% less water.

4. A vertical design requires 90% less space.

Another know issue with traditional growing methods is that of space. You need a lot of it. We have less and less space to farm daily. We lose about 3,000 acres of farmland to development daily. But growing vertically requires only 10% of the space traditional farming uses.

5. Pollution and pests are less of a problem.

How much do you know about your backyards history? City soil is often contaminated with heavy metals, asbestos, petrochemicals and other pollutants….a number of which you can’t test for(I don’t know about you, but I don’t really want that stuff seeping into food I ultimately eat). Luckily, Tower Garden is a soil-less growing system. So there’s no cause for concern about contaminated dirt.

Worried about pesticides? Thanks to a close-loop system that recycles water and nutrients, Tower Garden plants experience less stress. So they’re healthy enough to naturally resist most pests. Weeds are not an issue, of course, since they need soil to grow.

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!
