I have planted basil seeds in the rockwool several times over the last few months.  As soon as I put them in the wet rock wool, the seeds seem to bubble and develop purple bubbles over the seeds and opening in the rock wool.  I don't have this with any other seeds.  I have tried the seeds sent by TG as well as seeds I have purchased from Patriot… (Show more)

I teach fourth grade in Wisconsin. Our school is an agriculture school. We have just purchased four Tower Gardens. I was wondering if anyone has lesson plans for grade 3-5? I am also looking for a gardening journal that is modeled for use with a Tower Garden. Does anyone have one that is willing to share? If not, we should definitely be developing… (Show more)

I purchased multiple towers to go outside, while I keep two inside.  I planted most of my seedlings in the rock wool by the seed company directives on timing.  Unfortunately, it appears my seeds didn't want to follow that timing and accelerated their growth.  Now I have multiple tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings  taking off in the germination… (Show more)

We planted our garden last Friday.  We transplanted starter plants.  The pump is running for 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off.  The lights are on 14 hours a day.  Our lettuce is wilting and dying.  It is rotting at the roots and then falls off.  I have checked the pH level.  I am not sure what else to do.

I have a school looking at the Tower Gardens to use with the STEM curriculum.  Their district has quite strict guidelines concerning food safety.  Is there any documentation regarding this that would be helpful?

I teach at an elementary school in Kansas, and this is our first year to have Tower Gardens at our school. We are learning a lot, but I am really a rookie at all things gardening and am needing some help. Our cucumber plants were looking beautiful, and now they look tragic! They started off as beautiful green leaves and had bright yellow flowers,… (Show more)
