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.
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.Read more ›

These work extremely well. However, every tomato which grew on my back porch had blossom end rot resistant to all recommended therapies. I never got one tomato! Read morePublished 3 months ago by Samuel D. Thomas
