P. Allen Smith's this past April, one of the businesses that was also there was Easy Gardener. They're the makers of Jobe's Organics and other plant products, as well as a nifty canvas Instant Garden. We got to see these products while spending some time in Allen's gardens and we were thrilled to learn that we would be receiving some of them once we returned home.
My Easy Gardener Instant Garden arrived and once The Monsoon Month of May (a.k.a. The Second Wettest Month In History) passed, I got it out and planted it up. I used potting soil to fill it and various vegetable seeds to plant it.
I tried to plant things that I knew would do well in a container - round carrots, beets, purple basil, buttercrunch lettuce, radishes, and spinach. In June's heat, things germinated very quickly. I also added an eggplant plant in one corner.
- 16”W x 36”L x 8”D x 30” H
- It has a tube attached to the bottom for excess water to drain out.
- The container is supported by powder coated metal legs.
- The canvas is resin coated.
- It takes one 2 cubic feet bag of potting soil to fill it.
- It will support 75 pounds or so.

|Solanum melongena 'Purple Blaze' is putting|
on blooms. This variety is from Burpee and is
known for its high yield.
The Easy Gardener Instant Garden would be perfect for balcony or patio gardeners and those who may find bending over to garden a problem. I'm tickled that I can grow my own salads in such a small space and it's attractive seeing all that lush, green growing on our deck.
For more information on the Easy Gardener Instant Garden, you can visit their website, or purchase it on Amazon.
The Easy Gardener Instant Garden was sent to me free of charge. I was not required to blog about this product or any other product that Easy Gardener sent to me. The opinions expressed here are my own.
