Kristi’s Top 6 Tips for Planting a Garden Tower® 2 System

  1. Put your tallest plants on top of the Garden Tower® 2 system including carrots and beets in the top or second row.
  2. When planting in pockets, pull a little dirt back, place plant in the pocket, and push the dirt back over it.
  3. Plant things you know you and your family will want to eat, then branch off into “interesting” things.
  4. Space saver cucumbers are good for the bottom row.
  5. Sugar peas and do well at the top of the tower and come up quickly.
  6. Be aware of how large plants will get so they don’t shade each other out.
