Cool season crops
My Garden Post is Easy Gardening
MGP is off to a good start. Look at this lovely lettuce and the other bug-free salad greens.
I am loving my new My Garden Post (MGP).
Vertical gardening doesn’t get easier than My Garden Post. I planted a salad bowl garden in the top three planters.
The post and planters are mounted on five casters that makes it easy to move in for cool nights and out on the deck in the morning to find best sun exposure. MGP is solid and sturdy, no chance of tipping or spilling.
The planters are positioned at a comfortable height for planting, maintenance and harvesting. The dwarf tomato plants are sturdy and green. I removed the first tomato blooms to encourage plant and root growth.
An assortment of colorful lettuces are thriving in the smaller pots. It will soon be time to thin the lettuce for a first spring salad. Consistent watering and extended release fertilizer will allow more plants and herbs to fit in each pot.
Tending MGP is the easiest of all container gardening. No stretching, bending or reaching, I’m happy for no dirty hands or knees. Planters are positioned for easy access when it’s time to replace the cool season lettuces.
All the plants have better air circulation, which makes them less susceptible to mildew and other fungi. There is far less exposure to soil born insects and diseases with container gardening.
You still have plenty of time to order a My Garden Post. The MGP Drip Irrigation System guarantees no worries about the drought and watering even in August.
The First Thing
in the planter is, Better Than Rocks.
Cut BTR to fit the planter and reuse it every year. For My Garden Post planters it will keep the soil from running out of the drainage holes and create lighter containers.
- Use less soil,
- prevent over watering,
- buy it once and use it for a lifetime.
I have some Better Than Rocks product that I’ve been using every year for 10 years. BTR is eco-friendly, 100% recycled plastic. See their cool site. Order online at Better Than Rocks.
