These Earthboxes are a great and easy way to garden.
S. Rigby
I've since planted them and the tomatos and cucumbers I planted are growing like wild.
Joanne M. Lafreniere
When plants are using more water, it can take a lot of time to fill the reservoir.

The Earth Box is an innovative approach to container gardening. The reservoir system ensures that the plants get exactly the water they need. All you have to do is keep the reservoir from drying out, which requires you to fill it every other day or so. You can't over-water - you just fill the reservoir until water comes out the overflow hole. Plants use different amounts of water at different times of their growth, so when I fill the Earth Box every other day, I sometimes topped it off quickly and sometimes needed to fill nearly the entire reservoir. When plants are using more water, it can take a lot of time to fill the reservoir. I set up a rain barrel with a 1.5" flexible tubing and a spigot, which fills the Earth Boxes very quickly. It took forever using a watering can. The fertilizer strip system works wonderfully too, providing adequate nutrients without risk of burning the plants (you don't use slow release fertilizer in the Earth Box).

You can use the Earth Box to grow transplants, or to plant from seeds. One word of caution - make sure the cover doesn't cover your plants, especially your emerging seedlings, or the sun will burn the plants. I cut out a square instead of an X for each plant (if the plants are too small to rise above the cover), which increases the chance of weed seed getting into the potting mix but decreases the chance of sunburn.

My plants were a little slow to take off, but they out-grew and out-produced my garden plants. The Earth Box is easy to set up and easy to maintain. However, they are heavy once filled. I use a hand truck to move them in for the winter. They are made of durable plastic, but they can be punctured - one of mine got caught on a protruding nail head and now has a hole in the bottom. Also be aware that the Earth Box requires ongoing purchases - at least of the covers which will need to be changed every year. However, you can use your own potting soil and fertilizer.

Color Name: Green
I have one (actually five) and the EarthBox is a great invention if the cost of your vegetables does not matter to you. However, if cost is a factor, then these will be the most expensive tomatoes or peppers or cukes or melons or squash that you will eat this year. In addition to the initial cost of the EarthBox, you will also spend approximately $20 for potting soil (more for organic potting soil) and something additional for the plants. In a single box, it is recommended that you plant only two tomato plants, or four cucumber plants, or four melon plants, or six squash plants, or eight pepper plants, etc. (You can get more information at the manufacturer's web site located here: [...]) At approximately $80 to $90 for the initial set up, the vegetables you grow this year, though very nice, will also be very expensive. Next year, you will need to purchase a replanting kit, which includes fertilizer, dolomite and two replacement covers, at a cost of about $12. The original potting soil can be reused for five years. As long as you regularly add water to the box and place it in a sunny location, your vegetables should grow. I've had success with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash and corn. I was amazed that I could grow 16 corn stalks in a box and that the ears of corn were excellent. I have not had great success with melons, but will try again this year. Of course, it goes without saying that the quality of the seeds or vegetable plants you select is very important. If you select inferior tomato seeds or plants, then the tomatoes you grow will look great, but won't taste great. The same is true for corn. So be careful about buying mass-produced seeds or plants from the mega hardware stores, which will also not be organic, if that is important to you.Read more ›

Color Name: Terra Cotta
I can kill a plant by driving past the nursery. Even mint shrivels when I cast my one good eye upon it. Until I discovered the Earthbox, the only thing growing on my patio was some kind of nasty looking grayish bump that I am praying does not house wasps. It's small, dark gray, about the size of a hand and in the corner of the overhang. If you know what this is and if it is home to a dangerous insect, please speak up. Now. But to return to the Earthbox.

It's not foolproof, you have to put it together and it's not, shall we say, structurally elegant. And after you've put it together, the wheels will fall right off if you lift the box. Getting them back on once you've planted the box requires lots of yelling and a stiff drink. However, when it comes to growing plants, Boy Howdy, it's a winner. I planted tomatoes, scotch bonnet peppers and a small anaheim-stye chile in one box. The other I filled with lavendar, rosemary, basil (also lemon basil and pineapple basil), dill, chives. garlic and oregano. And almost everything thrived. The dill got squooshy and just disappeared one day. I think the Oregano ate it. It has that kind of look, the Oregano does.

The Earthbox is self-watering and self-feeding, a trick children and houseguests might learn. The boxes are compact and take up very little room. After minimal labor and minimal attention (mostly snipping back the herbs and staking the tomato plants) I harvested tomatoes and peppers all summer long, and the peppers are still going strong. Can I tell you how Mother Earthy it makes you feel to serve a Caprese salad with your own basil and tomatoes! Now I want my own buffalo so I can make the mozarella too! Best of all are the herbs. The lavendar and rosemary scent the air and make sitting on the patio like being in a spa.
