THE BEAUTY AND BOUNTY OF TOWER GARDENING
Have you ever heard of a Tower Garden? This is my 5th summer growing beautiful veggies and herbs vertically! It’s a beautiful thing! Literally! If you have ever wanted to know just what a Tower Garden is and how they grow plants I can show you!
A Tower Garden is a wonderful way to enjoy veggies, herbs, and flowers when you don’t have the space for a garden or don’t want the commitment of a traditional garden.
We brought the tower garden to the Tanglewood house, but we have not set it up yet. Thank goodness for the Tower garden because I can enjoy fresh produce right from our patio!
We’ve been enjoying our Tower Garden for 5 years! I thought you might like to see more about this amazing way to garden and how we used it when we first got it.
WHAT IS A TOWER GARDEN
A Tower Garden is a vertical, aeroponic (growing plants in an air and mist environment) garden that grows 30 percent more plants 30 percent faster with 98 percent less water!
It’s perfect for indoor or outdoor use and it fits nicely into smaller spaces.
You can see how a Tower Garden works HERE.
HOW DO PLANTS GROW
The veggies grow in pods without soil and are watered with a nutrient rich tonic as the water in the base goes up through the tower and drips down on to the little roots feeding them and the plant. LOVE the sound of the trickling water!
It was so much fun to see how quickly our plants grew! In less than 3 weeks we were harvesting most of our herbs and veggies!
Look at the yellow zucchini flower that will soon be a ripe zucchini ready for harvesting!
ASSEMBLING A TOWER GARDEN
Bobby and I (and when I say “Bobby and I”… I mean Bobby) put the Tower Garden together in about 20 minutes.
I know, isn’t he so cute? Yes, yes he is!!!! Be still my heart!
I snapped the little pods, that hold the plants, in the tower! Easy-peasy!
WHAT’S GROWIN IN MY GARDEN
The Tower Garden came with everything I needed to get started.
I ordered seeding when I first started planting my Tower Garden but once I got used to how easy the Tower Garden is to plant I ordered seeds and seed pods.
Here are the baby plants…
And here’s the garden is just three weeks later! Amazing! What fun to watch it grow!!!
I can cut the veggies and they will grow back because I’m not taking the roots along with the veggies. Just think, garden leaf lettuce in July and August! This little garden is a wonder!
When it’s gets too cold for the plants to be outdoors I’m bringing the whole thing inside so I can grow herbs, veggies and flowers all winter! Flowers like marigolds and petunias and phlox and even sunflowers all winter long!!! How cool is that?
The lettuce ready to be harvested! I’m thinking about using the dill and parsley in the tower to make a yummy GREEN GODDESS dressing to toss with the lettuce!
I have a bottom pod ready for a CANTALOUPE!!! Can you believe it? Cantaloupe!!!!
I also have a tomato cage accessory to put on the Tower Garden so that all the veggies can be stabilized and hang from it! They won’t last long though, the Tower Garden is right outside my back door so I can grab the veggies and herbs I need and then back into my kitchen to prepare them! Very convenient!
Here are my favorite veggies, flowers and herbs to grow…
- dill (it’s so hard to grow in the garden or pots)
All of this on one tower!
The Tower Garden comes from Juice+. I am an avid Juice+ capsule taker! The capsules and gummies provide whole food nutrition from 30 veggies, fruits, and grains!!! No chemicals just great whole food!
I’ll update you on my vertical gardening adventures as things grow and change!!!!

A big hug and thank you to my daughter-in-law Abby and Gwen Wang for sponsoring this yummy and fun post!!! I love this Tower Garden and am very excited about having one and all the opinions are 100% mine!
That’s amazing Yvonne! I’m going to see if we have anything like this in the UK
I can look into shipping it there. Let me know if you have any questions…would love to help! 🙂
How much is it?
Head over to the Tower Garden site for prices and for payment plans!
You can make monthly payments (no interest is charged) over a 12 month period OR you can pay up front. I’ve done some research about the price of produce at the grocery store and, once I get my tower garden started, I’m going to save a lot of money since I won’t be buying produce anymore at the store. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com
Interesting, I’ll be anxious to see how it does later in the season, so keep us posted.
I gotta say, that’s a pretty darn snazzy contraption! It would make it very handy to place it on the patio for easy access. Thank you for sharing this!
A lot of my friends who live in the city (Atlanta, New York, and DC) are interested in ordering this because they want fresh veggies & fruit (which is expensive in the city) and they don’t have a lot of space in their yard (or even a yard at all). If you have any questions, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Such a creative idea for a garden! Unique way to make gardening simple and painless! Love it!!
Wow – how cool is that! I’m going to the website now to check it out!
This is really great! We have a tiny garden so adding this would be awesome!!
Love that tower garden!….Maybe I can elevate it even more so that the deer can’t reach it!!!…what a beauty!
You could put it up on a few palettes of wood (that’s what I may do since we have a lot of rabbits & squirrels in our backyard)
Love the tower garden have to get one for my grand daughter as she just moved and has a small deck and this will bring perfect for her.
That would be a great idea/gift for your daughter! It’s perfect for patios, balconies, & terraces since it doesn’t take up much room and she’ll have 20 fruits/veggies/flowers within a few feet from her house! Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any questions!
Here’s a great video you can show your daughter- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o5kLBBvj9g&index=2&list=PLmdM9al42F6lb8hSxl05OUffwxLNHiyBC
