Turn your kitchen scraps into fertiliser with the Garden Tower, the ultimate way to grow your fruit and vegetables using earthworm-composting. The tower has a soil capacity of 170 litres, 360 degree rotation for easy planting, and provides the perfect growing environment to plant 50 herbs or vegetables in every square metre.
Key features include:
Easy access vermi-compost tube, which allows fast, clean loading of kitchen scraps
Large opening pockets for easy planting of seeds or starter plants
7.5 litre drawer at the bottom of the tower which collects compost and nutrients, this can be used as a natural fertiliser
Wide stance legs to ensure stability even in severe wind conditions
Gravity pulls water down through the tower to water all of the plants. Being a self-contained system, the tower is ideal for all gardeners, young and old. It's also great for balconies and smaller gardens as it just needs to be kept on a flat surface that gets between 6-8 hours of sunlight per day.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF: The tower has an inbuilt composting system made up of a tube that runs down the middle of the tower, this is where the worms and kitchen scraps are added. This produces a rich compost made from worm castings, as well as excess fluid that can then be put back into the tower, creating a nutrient dense growing environment. Worm castings mimic the natural growing environment in the best way possible as they create significantly higher levels of available nutrients than ordinary surrounding soil, including: 10 times more potassium, 7 times more phosphorus, 5 times more nitrogen, 3 times more magnesium and 150% more calcium
The castings also include millions of unique soil microbes that are only available from this source. The tower is great for growing leafy crops, and works especially well with tomatoes and strawberries. However it is advised to be selective with the kitchen scraps you add to the tower, avoiding potato peel as it produces high levels of ethanol that can be damaging to plant growth. Being both frost and UV proof (able to stand in full sun for 7 years), the Garden Tower is ideal for British weather, and is a fantastic utilitarian device for growing organic foods.
