The Garden Patch™ Grow Box™ GIVEAWAY!

Posted · 143 Comments

Good Morning Garden Soldiers!  This giveaway is just for you!!!  I’m starting my one year blogiversary bash with a gardening giveaway suitable for anyone.  Whether you live in a rural acreage or have a tiny apartment in the busiest urban city the Garden Patch™ Grow Box™ will allow you to Grow Your Own Food!

I was super excited when I saw this product as I’m also a container gardener.  Besides plots of land scattered throughout the city I also container garden on my front and back patios.  I’ve grown annuals, carrots, beets, tomatoes, and peppers in containers.  For me the most difficult part of growing in containers has been finding a cost efficient, durable container that lasts.

Here’s a bit of what they have to say.

Easily pick 60 lbs of tomatoes from just one Grow Box. Replace an entire in-ground garden with just 6! The Garden Patch is so simple and efficient, it takes care of itself.

Sets Up in Less Than 5 Minutes

Works anywhere, every time – even for first-time gardeners.

Grows the biggest, juiciest, best tasting tomatoes you’ve ever had.

Automatic feeding and watering without guessing

Comes complete with FREE fertilizer.

No Weeding or back aches – Finally you’ll enjoy your garden instead of toiling in it.

Grows peppers and flowers like a pro.

No guessing or hassles of box gardens and hydroponics. Pays for itself in less than one season.

100% Natural growing.

Guaranteed to be the easiest and most productive garden or your money back.

A mighty little garden for a very little price!

More productive than in-ground gardens and twice the fun.

You can see why I got so excited!!  Typically, I write a review when I get a product and test it out.  Well, this is going to be a special case.  I get to review and blog about this product throughout the entire season.  The Garden Patch is sending me 2 boxes in terra cotta to review. I am planning on growing tomatoes in one and peppers in the other.  I’m hoping that by the end of the season my tomato plants will do as well as the one above :)  I’m curious and will blog about how it holds up to disease.  I’m optimistic since it’s in a container, you water from below and there is a clear barrier between the plant and soil.  All key elements.

Check out some of these other pictures.

This last man is growing sweet corn on a rooftop of his apartment. This very well may be a revolutionary easy way to provide nourishing food for your family!  If you live in a tiny apartment, check out your rooftop and if there is space, ask your apartment owner if you can grow some veggies up there.  For more fun pictures of the Grow Box in action, click here.

What I am really excited about is that The Garden Patch has agreed to send one lucky ready there very own Grow Box which retails at $29.95!  The lucky winner will also have the option to choose their Grow Box in Terra Cotta or Green.

    12. Candi says:

      Love that idea! Come over and link this up so others can see how to grow a small garden.

    13. Hope says:

      This would be awesome! I always seem to get some type of blight on my tomatoes. So I would like to try tomatoes in the box.

    14. Tien says:

      Since Florida got hit with the cold spell, the tomato prices are going to be high this year. I plan to grow as much tomatoes as possible. What a nice giveaway! -Tien

    15. Kristen says:

      I have some seedlings coming up for Pink Ponderosa tomatoes, which can get up to 2 lbs! I would try those or some of my sweet peppers. :-)

      This is a gift that lasts a lifetime!

    16. Hope says:

      already follow you on facebook! I am a BIG fan :)

    17. Foy Update - Garden Cook Write Repeat says:

      I think cherry tomatos are the obvious answer for me. Because you can water from below all the soil born fungus and bacteria not to mention V. Wilt would be kept at bay.

      I'd put this baby out on the porch in front of my office so everyone at the arboretum could see it grow. If I don't win, maybe I'll have to order one for myself.

    18. Andrea says:

      Love organic, but I am not very good at growing my own food. Thankfully, we can get organic food locally, here.
      Hugs, andrea

    19. Paula says:

      1st entry: What would I grow? Heirloom tomatoes. I have tried to grow tomatoes and each year I have lots of green, but not a single flower to turn into a tomato. :( I would love for once to grow TOMATOES not just leaves.

    20. Paula says:

      2nd entry – I am already a fan of yours on Facebook.

    23. Paula says:

      Guess I should post a 5th entry separately

    24. Paula says:

      and a 6th entry seperaely

    25. Nupur says:

      I would love to grow herbs in the box- nothing like fresh herbs to take home cooked meals to the next level.


    26. Kelli says:

      With the changes I'm making to my garden a container would give me even more options! I think I would like to test it the first season with something I'm totally familiar with like tomatoes or peppers.

    27. Ann @ Appalachian Appetites says:

    34. Angela says:

      I would love to grow Tomatoes in my apartment.

    35. Blair says:

      They work really well for tomatoes and I like to use them for salad greens and radishes and peas in the spring time because they warm up faster and are easy to put some plastic over to create a "greenhouse."

      Hello! I am very excited about this giveaway because I've always, always wanted to start a garden and since I have a lot of health problems and not much money or space (live in an apartment), this would be PERFECT! :) I would love to grow broccoli, carrots, asparagus, and honestly whatever else I could! :)

      Thank you!

    80. Katie @ Kitchen Stewardship says:

      I could NOT decide! Maybe lettuce so it's close to the house and away from hungry bunnies…or as many salsa ing. as I could fit!

      By the way, what a beautiful series on gardening. Please link it into the "get the pesticides out" topic for the Spring Cleaning carnival at KS – that week is the second in May, hosted by Heavenly Homemakers, who also has fab organic gardening info.

      If I won, I would tomatoes, for sure. Here in upstate NY, we had a terrible tomato blight last year and tomatoes were sky-high in price at the farmer's markets. I won't buy those anemic pink things in plastic from the supermarket…feh!

      Well, I want one because I am lazy and prefer to garden from my small deck or front porch area rather than go around and down out into the yard to water, fertilize, pick,etc! I like the convenience aspect of it. Maybe tomatoes or peppers.
