My Garden Post Vertical Garden System Review and #Giveaway

Site Logo
        Because each Summer I try my hardest to grow as much edible plants as possible in order to help not only provide for my family with food while saving money but because I know what goes into my plants as well as how safe they are.  I hate not having a large yard in the home we are in currently though because it becomes a puzzle each year figuring out where to put all the planters so they look pretty as well as can grow the best.

        The other problem I have is when it comes to the winters here in Michigan, I almost start getting depressed for my plant babies.  I want to bring each of them inside to save them from the drastic and bitter winters, however it just isn't possible.  Our home is too small and it would make for more chaos than its worth.  In either situation indoors or out even a task as simple as watering can be a pain.

        That was until I discovered My Garden Post randomly and luckily!  I was beyond thankful when they agreed to send one over to me for review!  My Garden Post created by Llona Innovations has been a small family owned and operated company since 2004.  When reading their "Abous Us" section, I felt like it was word for word what I had just typed in the paragraphs above.  They felt sad when gardening season ended during their trials and wanted to create something which work just as well indoors.

        My Garden Post is "A Vertical Growing System for Herbs, Vegetables, Flowers, Fruit and Tropical Plants for urban gardeners with limited space."  Included with each growing system is 5 uniquely designed planters and mounting brackets, post and base stand with casters.  There are even drain hole plugs for indoor use and you can choose between two color planters - green or terracotta.

        When I first opened my massive box I was thinking "wow this is going to be a big project".  But then I quickly realized how unbelievably easy it was to set up as everything snaps in place or hooks together.  I was definitely jealous once I realized there was even an optional drip irrigation system you can purchase as an add on to this which would help a great deal with watering.  I will definitely have to look into this.

        I was super surprised to see that once it was all together it stood taller than me (although I am a short 5'3")!  This worked perfectly holding my two citrus plants in the bottom two larger planters and some smaller vegetables and herbs in the top three smaller planters.  I do wish there were 3 of the bigger ones but I understand the reason for the smaller ones.  So far my plants look happier than ever and are super easy to water.  I can't wait to even bring them in during the winter as I am NOT worried about a thing!

Cost/Available to purchase:  $199.99 MGP Vertical Garden System
Recommendation:  Now I do think the cost of this one is pretty high for a planter but geeez with the quality and ease of use you really can't do wrong.  In fact I would love to replace the rest of my planters with these to maximize my space and growing potential!  It's absolutely beautiful!

  1. Thanks for the pictures, because it really gives you a better idea of the quality of the materials and how big the system actually is. I'd love something like this for my little patio area. Thanks for the review and showing how easy this was to set up.

  2. Michigan? I live in Colorado. If I put plants outside I would cover them.

  3. I just started having a green thumb and I have fell in love with planting flowers but the only problem I have is that I do not have a front porch and I only have a cement back yard!! So needless to say, this would definitely work for me. Now all I have to do is win it in the giveaway!! LOL

  4. I only wonder if they offer replacement pots...sometimes in life accidents happen, especially with kid(s)/animal(s) sharing your space ;)

  5. What a great product! I have such a small balcony that I cannot have more than 1-2 pots or I have no room to actually sit outside. With this, I'd actually be able to grow tomatoes or herbs in the city!

  6. I love this! So much you can do with it! My biggest problem would be what to plant! Decisions Decisions!!

  7. If sturdy and made well, the price is not to bad! I think it looks stylish too.

  8. These are such a great idea when you have very limited space. We are moving to a new house where we will have much less space than we used to, but I do want to keep gardening. This would be perfect!

  9. I, too, wanted to bring my plants in for the winter. I tried this once with tomato plants but it did not work out. I bought plant grow lights and put my tomatoes in the basement and I believe it was just to cool for them in the basement and they did not survive. This vertical planter would be great upstairs where there is more light and an even temperature.

  10. i love this! i wanted to buy some pots to plant some vegetables and herbs but this is so much better!i would love to grow my own stuff

  11. This is such a cool idea- we live in the suburbs I always need more places to plant. We recently dig up my herb garden by the house so we could have a outdoor hose in the back. This would make me happy again- more herbs

  12. I just love this and have to get me one. I love growing fresh herbs and this would be great. I might even buy a second one just for my strawberries.

  13. I would love to grow my own tomatoes and herbs, but I have the worst black thumb ever! Anything that would give me a head start is a good thing!!

  14. I love any kind of plants. I'm plant poor. Gardening soothes my soul.

  15. I recently sold my car and have been thinking of putting a garden in my parking space! This would be a great system to use. It doesn't look too complicated to set up, requiring crazy tools or bags upon bags of dirt. It would save me loads of money at the grocery store - especially the crazy cost of herbs (and anything organic)! Bring on the basil and cilantro! ...And spinach and arugula and kale - oh the possibilities!

    And wheels? Honestly, I think all furniture should be on wheels!

  16. I'm already envisioning all my plants in mishmash pots looking awesome in this.

  17. I love this! It would be so great to have one of these garden systems.I could have fresh herbs and veggies all winter.I have the perfect spot for it in my kitchen.

  18. LOVE this.. what a great space saver and a unique design.. this would be amazing to have on our back deck...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have seen these at other peoples house or gardens these pictures makes me think I could order one and actually put it together,,,thanks for taking the time to show this

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love gardening my back yard is not suitable for an in ground garden so I grow vegetables and herbs in containers. this system would solve a host of problems for me and let me add to my current container garden!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I really love the way you did the pictures, it lets me know what to expect. I would use mine for herbs a little and not worry about all the hassle now that you showed me how easy it is.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is such an attractive way to grow in a confined space! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great idea. You can plant different kinds of plants at once. And it's indoor/outdoor. Can't beat that. But the price is too much.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This looks like it would be really good for herbs. I like how pretty it looks.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a great design! I am so glad to see that it is designed with holes to drain the soil because many of the planters that I think look nice do not have that critical feature!

  26. Love this same way with me I live in minnesota!!

  27. Living in Ohio, I can relate to the awful winter months that you describe. I love growing all types of plants year round, but having space available indoors is not easy. I totally love this idea of a vertical garden! This would give me the opportunity to have more plants in a small area! Thank you for this review and for your photos posted :)

  29. The garden post sounds like the answer to my prayers. I love to garden and plant one every year. Unfortunately, no matter what I have tried either too much rain, my neighbor's tree limbs falling on it or critters have ruined my garden. This maybe just what I need to give me my garden "fix" but I can put in on my patio/deck and it would be away from the dangers. Thanks!

  30. I would so love to have something like this..............would be so easy for me to tend to a few things instead of a big garden.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It looks like the perfect fit for growing plants inside during the colder seasons. I do agree that the price is a bit high, but I'm sure its worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good to see someone is a part of the solution. (growing food)

    ReplyDelete
  33. i live in an apt and have no back yard. would love to own this so i can grow my own herbs. this is a great idea!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My kids love Strawberry's. This would be a great thing to try out.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love this idea! We have all sorts of wildlife tromping through our yard so a traditional garden in the ground would just be a salad bar for the deer and rabbits. This would let us grow on our deck, where less animals can reach it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. this is my 1st yr planting produce and these pots/post garden would be great in my small area to grow lots more.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have so many things I would plant in these. A strawberry patch would be one of them and an Herb garden. Cherry tomatoes would also be good.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is wonderful for those of us who have limited space. Vertical gardening is probably more efficient.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am thinking of all the plants that would work so well in this planter and strawberries would be awesome! Finally I could have something practical for my balcony.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This would look so good out on my porch, and I could plant all my favorite flowers in it. I live in Florida, so in the summer I'd move it inside - because it's so hot outside and I have a hard time growing things in this heat. Constantly watering them does no good, at least for me. This would be a great win for my family.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've started rosemary and basil to put in my pots when I win them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. This growing system looks very nice. Thanks for the interesting and informative review!
