Advice from the Owner

No grass!

We did break up old sod and amend the ground with enriched soil before planting Garden In A Box plants / sunflower seeds. We tended to water at night - which seemed to keep everything happy and healthy during their first hot summer months. Everything is thriving and we’re excited to see how things shape up next spring!
