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.

More about the Plants...

  • Soil: A light, well-drained soil that is rich in humus, moisture retentive, and contains lots of nitrogen and potassium will make these plants very happy. This plant is quite sensitive to pH (both extremes may cause deficiency), so adjust if necessary. Spinach is quite tolerant of saline soils.. *
  • Water:  Keep the soil evenly moist (not wet) otherwise it may bolt. Try to avoid splashing mud on the leaves as it can make them gritty.*
  • Food:  Spinach needs a moderate amount of nitrogen and potassium and a fairly small amount of phosphorous.The main requirement for Arugula is nitrogen, but they also need moderate amounts of potassium and phosphorus. *
  • Harvesting:  Depending on the size and quantities you want. Begin to harvest as soon as leaves are of sufficient quantity and size.*
  • Did You Know?: Spinach is rich in iron, but the iron is very water soluble and easily leached out by boiling. It also contains vitamins C and A (beta carotene), folate, luteine and various useful phytochemicals.
