Balcony Farming with Flexible Organic Growing System
In the realm of patio or balcony farming for enjoying home grown organic vegetables, another new kid on the block, The UrBin Grower, is pretty nifty for those living in limited spaces. The compact all-in-one system works by facilitating growth through a mixture of the Square Foot Gardening method, all natural soil amendments, and a square self-watering reservoir, maintaining even hydration to prevent under or over watering.
This is what you do: Mix in the amendments with your soil, plant your vegetables, and wait until the roots are long enough to dip into the water reservoir. After that you don’t have to think much about watering again. Its small footprint makes the UrBin Grower a perfect addition for the corner of your balcony, your small patio or terrace.
It’s ideal for those working outside of the home, as the plants will remain hydrated while you are out.
By using the company’s Worm Factory 360 companion product, you can fit a square foot garden complete with compost pile on your balcony.
The containers are made of recycled plastics and hold 5 gallons of soil and 1 gallon of water. Each kit comes complete with:
· Two growing containers
· Two soil separators
· Two square saucers
· Brick of coir mulch
· Brick of coir chips
· Four gallon bag of dry coir and minerals
· Two gallon bag of pumice
· Four seed trays
· 16 page instruction manual
· Step-by-step DVD
The two-pack kit is $79.99, available online.
