How to Set-Up a Stack and Grow Mobile Herb Planter

Posted on Feb 22 2011 - 3:03am by Mike Lieberman

Since I’m running the contest for the Stack and Grow Mobile Herb Planter I thought I’d show you how to set it up.

The set-up was a bit mess for me and potting soil got all over, but overall it was pretty simple. Here’s how you set it up:

  • Check all of the planting trays. One of them has a closed center. If you want to grow smaller plants, then put that tray at the top. If you want to grow a small tree or shrub, put that tray towards the bottom.
  • Place the cart down on a solid surface.
  • Put the wheels into the holes. You’ll have to force them in slightly and twist them.
  • Place the first planting tray on the cart. Align the holes and press it into place.
  • Fill the trays with potting soil and the ring that’s within each tray.
  • If you are transplanting, then insert your transplants. If you are starting from seed, continue to add more trays.
  • Add the next planting tray so that the planting pocket is between the two below it. Fill with potting soil and repeat.
  • After you have your planting trays added and filled with you soil, you can begin to sow your seeds.

The seeds that I decided to plant from bottom to top are:

  • Marigolds
  • Calendula
  • Parsley
  • Cilantro
  • Leaf lettuce in the top middle

The flowers are supposed to grow larger, which is why that I put them on the bottom. I also hope that these flowers are shallow rooted enough.
