Do I need to have a sunny balcony in order to grow fresh produce?
Yes – veggies and herbs love the sun. A South-facing balcony is best, and leafy greens and most herbs will grow on an East- or West-facing baclony too
What kind of plants can I put in an EarthBox?
You can put almost any kind of plant in there, however you should keep to plants that grow to about the same height to avoid having one crowd/shade out the others. Tomatoes and herbs are the most popular, but leafy greens, cucumbers, and peas are also common too
How many plants can fit in one EarthBox?
It depends on what kind of plants you want to grow. We can fit a maximum of 2 tomato plants per EarthBox, while herbs we can fit a maximum of 6 different kinds. More info on plant spacing and quantities coming soon.
What is the staking system?
The staking system is an add-on that is highly recommended for tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, and other climbing plants. It gives the plants support while they grow and attaches directly to the EarthBox unit. It is available as an add-on purchase for $55 + HST.
How big are the EarthBoxes?
Each EarthBox measures 29″ L x 13.5″ W x 11″ H
Can I purchase the EarthBoxes individually?
Yes, you can do so from our online store here: http://store.youngurbanfarmers.com/collections/all/products/earthbox-organic-garden-kit
