Introductions / Hello from Canada
« Last post by DjEclipse on January 16, 2020, 03:43:12 pm »
Hello all,

I figured I would introduce myself as a completely newbie grower trying the Earth Box ProBiotic Wellness Garden for the first time.  Since it is winter here I will be trying an indoor grow. 

I am the opposite of a green thumb but very excited about growing in the ProBiotic Wellness Garden as it is fully Organic and the watering systems seems great!  I am starting from seed and if all goes well will be transplanting in a few weeks.  :)

The people at EarthBox have been very helpful and friendly taking the time to answer all my newbie questions   :).

Questions and Answers / Brown Tomato Stems
« Last post by pmkdo on January 10, 2020, 10:52:10 am »
I grow 2 boxes of Better Boy tomatoes very year, 2 plants per box,  and usually they do very well. The snack fixes BER. This year one of plants is growing poorly and the stems are turning brown. The other plant is the box is growing fine.

I do not see evidence of insects, altho I am not an experienced gardener and I could be missing subtle changes. I grow my plants in my pool cage, so insects are not usually a problem

Picture is attached

I appreciate any help

Tips and Tricks / How to Combine Different Crops in the EarthBox
« Last post by joni barr on January 07, 2020, 12:20:54 pm »
Companion planting may seem simple at first, but you can’t just place any two species in the EarthBox gardening system. You need to know what will work together and what won’t work. If you have planted the wrong combination you could end up with problems in your garden.

EarthBox has a great article “How to Combine Different Crops in the EarthBox”: https://blog.earthbox.com/combining-crops-in-the-earthbox

There are general guidelines for combining crops in the EarthBox:

•   Never overcrowd the system. This is a common mistake folks starting out with the EarthBox for the first time.

•   Combine plants that have similar size and needs.

•   Try different varieties to see what you like best.

There is a section on Combination Successes – this portion of the article goes into detail about what combinations are successful.

Not every plant combination works in EarthBoxes. There is a list of what to avoid planting together.

There are some great combination themes as well. If you like a certain region’s style of cooking, try mixing up some of your favorite plants in one or two combination boxes.

Hello everyone and happy new years eve!

I am an intermittent earthboxer who is determined to do better in 2020! I have 11 earthboxes, in the city of chicago, on top of my balcony. This makes supporting top heavy plants or vining plants challenging. This is my current plan for 2020, please critique and offer suggestions.

Tips and Tricks / How To Attract Bees to Your Garden
« Last post by joni barr on December 19, 2019, 10:10:06 am »
Most gardeners are aware of the decline of the honey bee population in the US.  A bee friendly area could be created in a vegetable garden with growing native plants and other flowers that attract the pollinators. We could help our bees and other pollinators with this area.  Imagine all the beautiful flowers growing around the garden with our busy little friends doing their job!

EarthBox has a wonderful blog article, “How to Attract Bees to Your Garden”. https://blog.earthbox.com/how-to-attract-bees-to-your-garden

Reading this article will help to learn about the most common bees and how to create your own bee friendly area. There is some great information regarding bee friendly flowers with a link to Xerces Society (for invertebrate conservation) https://xerces.org/. This site has a pollinator plant list broken down into separate regions featuring regional native plants that are highly attractive to pollinators and are well suited for a small garden. Many of these plants attract nectar seeking butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds and some of these plants are host plants for butterfly and moth caterpillars.

Good question. You can put the 1 tsp of "snack" prills (calcium nitrate) directly into the reservoir tube. It will dissolve all by itself.

I am using the EB irrigation system this year and want to add the snack. Do I have to turn the system off for a few days until the box is down a gallon of water or can I just dissolve it in a small amount of water and put it down the tube. Thanks
