More about the Planter...

  • The 10 "cells" in this planter are set at a 45 degree angle, allowing the plants to grow up and out. As the plants grow they hide the planter so all that is visible is the beautiful living art of the plants.
  • The easiest way to provide water for this planter is by using an Irrigation Tray (available above). It is a container that slips on the top of the planter, with four tiny holes in the bottom designed to slowly irrigate each cell, ensuring that all the plants absorb the water appropriately. Automatic Irrigation Systems are a great option for the busy gardener or for anyone who is using multiple GroVert trays. These systems can be indoors or out and are run by either battery or electrically powered timers. 
  • If you would like to keep this planter indoors, a Collection Tray (available above) is also strongly advised because it will catch any water that drains from the bottom of the planter, keeping your walls and floors dry. 
  • For Planting and Installation Instructions, visit the GroVert How-To page. 

More about the Plants...

  • Bee Balm, a member of the mint family, is native to the eastern United States and Canada. Both the brightly colored flowers and the leaves, with their complex flavors of citrus and spice, are used for tea.  
  • Catnip is a two- to three-foot-tall mint-family member. When used as a tea, it has a delicious lemony-mint flavor. Cats go crazy for the dried leaves. Caution: Pregnant women should avoid drinking catnip tea.
  • Lemon Verbena provides a strong lemon flavor to whatever drink or dish it is used in. The leaves are long, slightly sticky and deciduous. This woody shrub prefers full sun and a light, well-drained soil. It's hardy only in zones 10 and 11. It should be brought indoors in the winter if you live in cooler zones. Note: Check all plants for insects before moving them inside from the outdoors. 
  • Stevia has been grown for centuries for the sweet flavored quality of the leaves. Recently it has become popular as a sugar substitute. You can enjoy these sweet leaves in several different ways. The easiest way is to simply put a fresh leaf in your tea. You can also make a powder by drying the leaves and finely crushing them. To do this, put several leaves on a piece of paper outdoors in direct sunlight and in an area with good air circulation. Leave for at least 12 hours, then crush the dried leaves with a mortar and pestle or a coffee grinder. Use it conservatively. Stevia powder is 30 times sweeter than sugar.
  • Sweet Lavender is the best variety of lavender for culinary purposes. It is a pleasant, pure yet mild flavor when compared to other more bitter varieties. Both the leaves and the flowers can be used, however, the flowers make the best tea. Combine 3 tbsp of fresh flowers or 1.5 tbsp of dried flowers with 2 cups of boiling water and a stevia leaf or two (if desired). Steep for 4 to 5 minutes. Then strain and serve.
  • Mint comes in many varieties which make wonderful teas. Chocolate mint has an earthy, subtle yet distinctively chocolate flavor. Lemon mint is crisp and refreshing. And pineapple mint has an unusually savory effect. All mint plants enjoy partial sun, and all tend to be aggressive growers. Growing mint in these vertical garden structures is the perfect way to keep them in check.
  • Yerba Buena is a low-growing perennial with pleasant menthol flavored leaves. It is hardy to 10 degrees F.
