Doing the Work of Bees While They Sleep the Winter Away

While herbs may be easy to grow inside during the cold months of winters, I enjoy the challenge of growing a few of my favorite vegetables. Challenge might not be the right word because growing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and other vegetables that blossom is not difficult. These plants just have needs in addition to those of herbs. Vegetables that blossom [...]

My Garden Post on the Road

Hi Oliver, Mike and I first learned of My Garden Post when doing a search for vertical garden systems and thought it would be ideal for our RV travels. When we arrived in Arizona for the winter, we placed an order for a MGP soon after we settled into our park. It arrived a few days later and we’re very happy [...]

My Garden Post Gets in the Holiday Spirit

I’m constantly thinking of ways to use My Garden Post throughout the year. A poinsettia display has been on my mind for several months so I thought I’d give it a try. I found a good buy on the plants and it took only 5 quarts of potting soil and 15 minutes to create this stunning arrangement. It will [...]

Then it’s a matter [...]

Innovative Vertical Garden: Solving a Problem

Marc and I came up with the idea for MGP when we noticed many urban gardeners were crowded off their balconies and decks by an ever enlarging collection of plants in assorted containers. We knew up front that any new product has to solve one or more problems and customers need to find value in the solution. By going vertical, [...]

Your Plants Have to Eat: Fertilizing Your Garden

I read the results of a national gardening survey recently and wasn’t surprised to learn that more than half of American gardeners don’t fertilize their plants. That’s a shame and a waste of time and plants. I can assure you those who do fertilize get far better results than those who don’t. For purposes of our discussion today, I assume [...]

Selecting The Best Seed

Near the end of my post last week, I shared that I have a childlike fascination with germinating seeds. This might be a good time to confess that I enjoy watching plants grow even more than eating the vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit that I produce. I admit; it’s easier to buy the transplants, but you’ll not experience [...]
