The Ultimate Gardening System
Down Home Garden Center & General Store is proud to be Mebane’s only authorized dealer of the greatest growing tool ever…… introducing the EarthBox!!!
The original EarthBox® gardening system—a great value! You name it, you can grow it! Poor soil conditions and small backyards are no match for this patented container gardening system, developed by commercial farmers. Proven in the lab and on the farm, this maintenance-free growing system controls soil conditions, eliminates guesswork, and more than doubles the yield of a conventional garden—with less fertilizer, less water, and virtually no effort. Just add water and sunlight for an easy garden that requires no digging, no weeding, and no guesswork! Grow tomatoes and other robust vegetables and aromatic herbs in any small space—a balcony, patio, or even rooftops! This revolutionary SIP (Sub-Irrigated Planter) is ideal for urban garden settings since its compact size allows you to grow healthy, fresh (even organic!) food where it never grew before! Unlike other raised bed gardens and planters, the EarthBox® is self-watering, sustainable, easily moveable and portable, and can even be used to grow indoors. No green thumb required! Stop by the store to see one in action :)
