Anyone had any experience of these?




I have 2 x 2m vegepods on stands. Been growing successfully in them for 5 years now. They work well for me for green crops & tomatoes. I live in Taranaki with frosts, so can loose crops like tomatoes quite often in the open.

I can grow brassica without being plagued by the dreaded brassica moth and lettuces thrive in the microclimate without snails. Also regularly plant root crops like beetroot & carrot.

organic, grown metres from your kitchen and minutes from picked. Priceless. Costs a bit to set up compost wise etc but as bananaboat says micro and macro organisms, fungus etc builds an amazing growth garden. Feed soil organically and you will get these. Artificial Petrolium products like man made ferts the old school used ignorantly causes terrible damage to your soil and you can only grow crops by adding more just what the chemical fert companies want. I’ve got about 2 years to get my new garden into the organic sweet zone. It takes time

My gardens are just the old style dug in the ground things. Yeah I do use a few commercial ferts and compost but over the years they have got less and less. Here's an update on my garden
