Edible garden Update:
Here is an update of the Edible garden project posted a few months ago.
If you are not aware of the Green Circle Garden please see the how it works video below
DID YOU KNOW...
This is the first Green Circle Garden Prototype and its been on test since 2012.
For everybody who is not familiar with this post, this is the first Green Circle Garden and has been on test since 2012. We plant it out from seed every year and let the hydroponic grow system do the rest. We have grown all types of flowers, herbs fruits and vegetables over the years. Above, radishes, chives, cherry tomatoes, ginger, basil and chilly's were grown.
2 months later the strawberries, Chilly's and ginger have really taken a stronghold and are producing some golf ball sized strawberries.
Although the weather has been rather chilly over the past month or two there has been noticeble growth and the strawberries have doubled in size.

Tips on growing large plants
The most important of all is plant spacing, it is important to allow space for the seedling to expand in all directions
Green Circle Garden allows you to grow edible plants in a fun, creative way, which can double the yield of the equivalent yard space.
The raised level of the Green Circle Garden gives plants room to spread. Air flow is better, disease is less and its wheelchair accessible.
Vegetables, especially larger vegetables, need room to spread. Often times if you can allow more root space your plants will be better off. The Green Circle Garden can act as a hanging basket maximizing the amount of plant growth too. Melons or Cherry tomatoes can hang and trail and use the 44 Gal water reservoir to grow as big as the sunlight available lets them. Roots of larger plants will find their way into the bottom water reservoir, increasing root space and plant production.
The photo shown is the edible garden of a Vitalia resident in Santander, Spain. The plants she chose were tomatoes, peppers, chilies, strawberries, cabbages, lettuce, chives and Basil.
The Green Circle Garden will help you grow herbs, fruits, and vegetables in a successful way, every time.

Thank you to Lori Harris for sharing her butterfly farm and miniscaping project with us.
"I'm a butterfly farmer in Illinois with educational outreach programs. I purchased three of these planters and planted them with butterfly host and nectar plants. The senior center program benefitted SO MUCH from being able to watch the complete monarch lifecycle in an upclose, hands on way. AWESOME product!"
