I love my garden! All my gardening styles and methods are wonderful experiments. Which of these two methods is currently outperforming the other? Vertical Garden System: Home SUBSCRIBE! #growreallife is my hashtag to connect people interested in Growing Real Life. This is a bit of a double meaning. Growing Real means following the patterns of nature. Real Life is developed fully in our gardens and our souls when we pattern ourselves in harmony with nature. Grow with me. MY WEBSITE! FACEBOOK!

    Too many variables between the systems.

    The bed will or should out produce.

    How many years before we have another pile of plastic in the landfill??

    Put the tower on a lazy susan and rotate daily

    That raised bed is dry as a bone you liar

  • mickjen 4 months ago

    Because that bed looks like compacted, dried out soil…

    Did you use the same type of soils? In both tower n raise bed? Water around the same time ?

  • Patrick Meehan 4 months ago

    That's most interesting Blake. Was the soil in the Pots the same as the raised bed?

    It's interesting to see the difference. I have a strawberry tower and haven't noticed a difference between my tower grown strawbs and the ones in my raised beds. I shall observe more closely! TFS.

    The best part about your channel is that you show the ups and downs of things you do. I wondered about the tower gardens and how they worked out. I really thought the raised bed would do better…lol. Thanks for your unintended experiment!

    I like the towers but they are expensive. In all fairness cats can't get into the towers like they can get into a low to the ground raised bed. There's nothing like fresh soil to urinate or defecate in. I appreciate your video and the different methods you share.

    I was intrigued and surprised by your results, even with the slight soil differences. Vertical growing is such a smart way to maximize your growing space. Thanks for sharing your 'experiment' 🙂

    Quite a difference there Blake. Best wishes Bob.

    I would tend to think the plants in the tower had their root systems develop better because of the confined space as compared to the plants in the raised beds. I have had issues like this when I have put a small plant in a big container whereas a similar plant in a smaller container with better root system responded better to being up potted. I would think the plants in the raised beds would eventually do better once established than the ones in the towers due to nutrient factors.

    Wow, I would never had though the results would be that different!
    I can see that you will never be able to grow bigger crops like chilies and tomatoes in those towers, but the looks great for smaller crops like strawberries, cale, herbs you have planted.
    And it looks like the plastic is solid in that tower, unlike some other towers I have seen! Looks like a great product 😀
    Keep up the good work, Blake!

    Good job! Good luck Mr!

    my guess is the tower garden soil is warmer since there is a smaller amount. the raised bed is a large WIDE DEEP amount of soil and therefore takes longer to warm up.

  • Michiadje Elise 4 months ago

    hum!!!; that is a very interesting update; there's indeed a big difference in growth between them

  • Rob Donaldson 4 months ago

    All of these experiments. Lets all start calling you DR. KIRBY, PH… Haha

    you used better soil in the tower … are just pushing the tower garden for personal gain you will never grow anything substantial in the tower garden. …Tower gardens are a dumb gimmick for vegetables they are for flowers so if you are planting flowers get a tower garden vegetables get a raised bed or another proven method. …and last be honest with your viewers and stop pushing garbage products

  • Sherry Woyczik 4 months ago

    Not really a fair comparison if the soil in the bed was not the same.

    I'm in love with that TOWER GARDEN! Really seems to grow plants quite well. Can't wait to see and keep following the TOWERS progress and produce! Thanks for the share!
