New Take On Container Gardening
Interest in vertical walls is growing, and EarthBox's MiniGarden is yet another product that fits into that segment.
May 5, 2011
The MiniGarden is a new modular growing container that makes it possible to have a vegetable plot, herb garden, flower garden or decorative living wall virtually anywhere. MiniGarden's unique system of modules creates a self-contained vertical structure.
Designed for anyone who wants to grow edible or ornamental plants, the MiniGarden system can be installed indoors for kitchen use or outside on patios, porches and decks. A MiniGarden can even be used to create a rooftop garden, or the modules can be used on and around fences or used as modern window boxes.
Each MiniGarden kit includes three modules, which each has three planting pockets. So each MiniGarden can hold a total of nine plants. Each module can be stacked and/or connected to additional modules, both horizontally and vertically.
MiniGarden modules can also be connected back to back to create a double-sided "wall" of growing containers. When stacked vertically, a three-module MiniGarden measures 25.2 inches wide, 5.5 inches deep and 22.5 inches tall.
MiniGarden kits are available in three colors - white, green and terracotta. Included in the MiniGarden kit are container lids, a water-collecting tray and clips used to connect the growing modules. The MiniGarden sells for $59.99 from EarthBox.
