Agro-Towers, vertical container gardening

maineman(z5a ME)February 2, 2007

Hi All,

I just came across the Agro-Towers stackable vertical container system. They are rather "pricey" but they look like they could be effective. I'm not into container gardening myself, or I would give these a try despite their high prices and shipping costs.

Those are a bit pricey, but they did get me thinking about how I could maybe fabricate something. Would also be interested in hearing from someone outside of CA - colder climate, that is - to see how the strawberries stand up over the winter months.

I was reading and just posted to another thread about something called "the dark garden", a homemade vertical-type scenario. The creator's user name on this site is georgeiii. Scroll to some of the most recent posts to have it presented a bit clearer, the first few posts are a bit confusing, but georgeiii added numerous pics toward the bottom of the thread and another poster named grvtykllr cleared up the explanation pretty well.

Anyone interested in this kind of rig need to visit the folks at Verti-Gro. They've been here in biz in florida for eons and are very nice folks to do business with. Also way cheaper. 20 planters for $80 vs 6 for $70 of the Agro-Towers. You can buy all the rest of the pieces and parts at your Blue or Orange Box Store hell.

Here is a link that might be useful:
