It seems impossible, growing a garden inside? And we’re not talking about in a greenhouse or a sunroom, but pretty much any sunny corner of your home could lead to a garden in your home! We’ve created My Garden Post vertical garden system to help gardeners of all ages, experience-levels and locales to grow their garden in any location, inside or out.
So what are the benefits of growing an indoor garden? Isn’t the point of gardening to get outside, dig in the dirt, get your knees dirty and grow something from the earthy? Well, yes and we fully support traditional gardening. However, consider the following:
Those are just a few reasons why investing in My Garden Post vertical garden makes the most sense. Not only, is it easy to use – it only takes up 4 square feet! So whether you’re limited on space inside or outside, you have no excuse not to grow when it takes up such little space! In addition to that, the 5 easy planters make it easy to garden and harvest your vegetables and herbs. Hung at varying heights, you don’t ever have to get on your knees to plant your seeds or bulbs. Ideal for senior gardeners who still want to grow their favorites, but can’t spend too long on their knees or bend down.
Container gardening is great for people who don’t have a lawn or yard to grow a garden. However, the more you love the garden, the more containers you tend to have. One way to improve that is to go vertical! And you can go vertical all year round, with My Garden Post. You can use 5 containers on My Garden Post and grow an assortment of vegetables and herbs while only still occupying 4 square feet.
Gardens also take up a lot of time. From taking care of the soil, preparing the garden, actually planting your seeds and then cultivating your vegetables, herbs or fruit – it’s a large time commitment to be a successful gardener. Not to mention, the time you have to take to water your garden. That’s why we offer a drip irrigation system, so you can just set the timer and forget it – perfect for people with busy lifestyles and can’t carve out enough time every day to water their plants.
There are no excuses to not garden inside! And even if you prefer an outdoor garden, that’s fine – just roll your My Garden Post vertical garden outdoors when the weather permits. So, what are you waiting for? Start your indoor garden, today!
Herbs are the most popular plant group for indoor winter gardening for practical reasons. They’re easy to grow inside, but gardeners seldom grow anything just because it’s easy. Cooks enjoy a source of fresh seasonings grown just a few steps from the kitchen. I think that’s likely the motivation. Growing healthy vigorous herbs is easy, only if you provide them [...]
Last week I posted some helpful information on growing cucumbers indoors and two ways you can help nature with the process of pollination, remember? For those who don’t, refer to last week’s post. Unlike the cucumber, tomatoes and peppers have a perfect flower.This simply means the male and female structures are found in the same blossom. Some pollination and fruit production will take [...]
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 [...]
Dear Jane in Florida, Thanks for your recent call and comments. I’m glad I was able to help you out with your questions and the problem you experienced with the post coupler. After giving it some thought, it seemed a good idea to share some of what we talked about with my followers. Your experiences and questions are not entirely [...]
Greetings from Eleuthera, Oliver My husband and I have been following your blog the last few weeks and we decided My Garden Post is perfect for our needs, so we ordered one prior to leaving for the Bahamas for the winter. It was an experience getting it here and we ran into a variety of problems. No problems with your product, getting [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
The questions I get most often from owners of My Garden Posts pertain to choosing the best vegetables to grow. I always counter with, what vegetables do you like to eat?” Before you shop for seeds and transplants, you should have a list in mind of the vegetables you most often like to toss into salad. Then it’s a matter [...]
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, [...]
