Varden™ has been in the vertical living wall market for the last 4 years with excellent results. Several customers began using it for vertical organic gardening with impressive results, so we decided to shift our focus to local food last year and developed this version just for entry level home gardening.
Our packaging is fun and informative. Everything needed to is in the box with most of the components pre-assembled and an instructional mounting template printed in the box. Find the right spot and get vertical gardening in about an hour.
Our soil filled Vardensok sits right on top of a great drip irrigation system that waters right at the root zone for optimal plant health and zero water waste. Its all included in the kit and pre-assembled too.
Leafy greens and herbs work well so focus on salad accents and cooking flavors. Plants with less root depth needs and top-growth less than 2 feet tall are the best choices. Get creative and see what you can make work. Then send us pics and info to add to our knowledge base.
Varden™ and its hardware has been designed to be added onto. Both side-to-side and up and down, the wire and trays will butt up to make a seamless, larger Varden™ so you can start small and grow into it.
We and always learning from others so give anything a try and share results with us. We do have additional tray designs in planning and once they are ready we will announce them here and they should be great for deeper rooted species. Stay tuned!
Darn right it can! We are finalizing accessories to let you garden vertically indoors year-round. Our trim kit includes and water basin and pump, side panels, top panel and a light.
You can order filled socks and pouches from us or you can get great garden soil at your local garden center or farm supply dealer. You may want to check for a quality compost producer that is a member of the US Composting Council for the most environmentally beneficial gardening soil/compost.
If you are already a gardener, you may want to start your plants from seed or direct seed into the Vardensoks. No matter what, the most reliable way to get a great vertical garden is to purchase the best garden plants you can find at your local garden center. Buy small live plugs no more that 2-3″ in diameter to make it easy for insertion into the Vardensok.
