  1. Looks like they adapted from those mexican strawberry pots

  2. The only thing I’m still wondering about is the compost in this. Is it
    going to be emptied out from the bottom? If so, will you have to pick out
    the worms and put them back into the center tube? And if you’re not
    composting food scraps, what’s the point of having the worms? Will the
    compost from the center even do anything for the plants? I’m just
    confused! 

  3. I love this idea. I just am hesitant about the weight of it if I had to
    move to another place.

    I though that Miracle Grow was all natural, or at least obtained it’s
    nutrients that way, but I see now they also sell a “Organic” one. Guess I
    will have to go non organic for the three months that it runs itself on.
    I’m going to make a 1 foot trench in my raised bed to have a mulch garden,
    and the worms will have access to each side then. I’m going to collect red
    worms outside of the raised bed to get started by putting a shovel into the
    ground and vibrating it. The worms come to you while vibrates. I don’t
    get the mind set of the people torchering them electrocuting them, putting
    soap on them to get them to come out, Why so vicious?

  5. I could care less about sustainability.
    we aint running out of peak moss anytime soon

  6. ha ha it’s funny how you would plant dandelions in your state, but in my
    state, we pay hundreds of dollars to kill them all.

    can you eat dandelion flowers and stems? they have like a milky goo inside,
    and i’m leery of it. 

  7. What did it cost to build out that soil, about $1500 bucks?

    That being said, I hadn’t considered integrating a compost bin into a grow
    bucket. Cool idea.

    *cough* weed *cough*

  9. Mixing the soil looks too difficult, why can’t it be as easy as they say on
    their video. Now I do not think I cna do this. I was excited before but
    not using food scrape, all the different soil, etc
    What happened to the 2nd generation garden tower they showed 2 yrs ago but
    no one is selling them…a much better model that turns and even looks
    nicer?? Oh ya the prices were much lower?

  10. ahah this guys cool

  11. this really nice I’m excited about building one of these.

  12. Is this item guaranteed? How long should it last? Here in southerner
    California any thing plastic deteriorates quickly in the sun.

    You know the way you increase the number of worms is to break them in half
    (they are male and female in one) they become another worm very quickly.
    Worm growers do this…Personally I just can’t do it (in laws once raised
    worms, I just like the good old fashion wait and let nature take it’s
    course.

  14. I live in Illionois and not sure what temp it needs to be before i add my
    worms to the compost tube. Right now it is about 50 but next week it will
    go to 38/40 any idea?

    I’m going to have to sell my house to buy all this just to make dirt. I
    would suppose this is fine for the serious grower like you, but I am a
    small garden grower who just wants “real organic, and vine ripe fresh
    food. What is a basic that I would need, cause their is no way I can
    afford or need that many bags of additives. I bought rewal good planting
    mix and add Miracle grow, today I bought the premixed Miracle grow soil…
    what is your take on that?

  16. have you tried aquaponics yet

  17. I love this! Great for a small space!

  18. Just build your own! Get a 55 gallon Blue drum ( from Emergency
    Essentualasor other store or Craigs;ist), if you have a saw or other tools
    and some P Vc pipe and tubing easy! Just got be handy!! just like 1 of
    those strawberry pots on steroids!!

  19. 

  20. In your opinion, do you think this would be good for growing strawberries?
    Thanks
    Robert

  21. Wow, that’s awesome. I am going to get a few of these tower. Thanks John.

  22. Totally dig your growing container and your vid is very fun and informing!!
    Grow on gardening friend!!

  23. OK I bought one of these and will do my own soil mix – got my worms just
    waiting for the weather to warm up – thanks for all you do

    Great video!! What about all the chemicals in the water? Would it make a
    difference to use non tap water?

  25. Wasn’t the point of the worms to turn food scraps into compost. If you are
    going to use finish compost why the need for the worms?
