When you plant an EarthTower, you get years of productive gardening pleasure with a minimum of effort. This vertical garden has been designed to do far more than conventional “planter-type” units.
The simple truth is that many of us, who have tried to raise plants in containers, have experienced marginal (or worse) success. We try hard! We water and fertilize; we prune; we fiddle and fuss. Nothing much grows well, and we really don’t understand why.
So why is EarthTower different?
What exactly does this vertical gardening system provide you and your plants?
1. MAXIMUM PLANTS; MINIMUM SPACE
Vertical Gardening allows you to plant and enjoy a maximum number of plants in a minimum area of floor space. The EarthTower provides 46 feet of garden row in only a 2x2 foot space.
2. SIMPLE ASSEMBLY
To assemble EarthTower: Snap in the wheels; secure 4 screws at the bottom and 4 screws at the top; and then slide in the slats. Before you know it, you’re ready to start gardening!
3. WHEELED BASE TO MOVE & ROTATE
EarthTower is equipped with snap-in ballbearing caster wheels to easily move and rotate your garden in all directions. Take full advantage of available sun! Move your garden inside in case of severe weather! Insure equal lighting on indoor gardens!
The EarthTower is made of strong, rot-resistant, weather-resistant cypress wood with an attractive non-toxic stain.
Unlike the plastic vertical gardens on the market, EarthTower is like a stunning garden temple adding beauty even before your plants begin to bloom.
5. EASY TO WATER & FEED
EarthTower’s food-safe watering and feeding reservoir provides an even supply of water and nutrients to the plants FROM THE INSIDE of the tower. This eliminates wetting of leaves, reducing the conditions which encourage the development of fungus diseases.
Going on vacation? Fill the reservoir twice a day for two or three days just before you leave. This should hold your plants for a week or two. No need to hire a plant sitter!
6. DRAINAGE – NOT DAMAGE
Improper drainage is probably THE MAJOR problem in container gardening. When soil becomes waterlogged, air is excluded from the roots and they begin to rot. The EarthTower’s base is specially designed to funnel excess water out through the drainage hole. It is almost impossible to overwater!
7. ROOTS & PLANTS THRIVE
EarthTower’s loosely packed planting medium lets your plant roots roam and grow without excessive resistance or pressure from surrounding soil.
EarthTower uses a soil-less growing medium so it doesn’t require any ugly electrical cords to operate a noisy pump.
The EarthTower stands 4 feet tall and is easy to move and rotate. People in wheelchairs or people who have difficulty bending or leaning down find gardening in The EarthTower an enjoyable, accessible experience ... and much easier on the body!
10. GROW DIRECTLY FROM SEEDS
You can grow from seeds or starter plants. SEEDS are much less expensive and can be sown directly into the EarthTower. Watch your healthy, organic plants sprout and grow!
