Important Information about Planting in an EarthBox
To prepare for the assembly of your EarthBox Gardening System, determine what type and how many plants you plan on growing. In addition to your EarthBox contents and plants, you will need about four gallons of water, a pair of scissors, and peat-based potting mix. Next, choose a location for your EarthBox. Select a sunny spot with a minimum of eight hours of daily sun for warm season crops such as tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. Select partial shade for cool season crops such as lettuce or spinach. Refer to our Growing Guides page if you aren't sure what your crop needs. We recommend setting up your EarthBox close to where it will stay for the season.
Using the Plant & Fertilizer Placement Chart in your instruction manual, pay attention to the recommended plant types and maximum number of plants for your specific EarthBox Garden. We recommend planting seedlings that are at least 5-7” high. If you would like to plant seeds directly into the EarthBox, you can easily grow plant varieties like cucumbers, squash, corn and beans. Remember to not overcrowd your EarthBox® Container Garden. For best results, do not mix different types of plants in one EarthBox system. That said, you are able to combine some crops if desired.
