“The best vertical container gardening system I've ever used”
John Kohler - Growing Your Greens Las Vegas, NV
The Garden Tower was engineered to optimize soil-to-compost ratios to allow plant roots direct access to organic fertilizer via the patented vermicompost column.
Mature plant roots naturally find the nutrient rich vermicompost₁ contained in the column through the numerous perforations designed to provide unrestricted access.
Included with your purchase is 24/7 access to our exclusive online Garden Tower Resource Central where you'll find step-by-step quick start videos, assembly instructions, downloadable manual, and other vertical gardening tips.
