Minigarden Vertical Gardening System Debuts in North America

From living walls to farm-fresh produce, Minigarden is a modern urban gardening solution

“We’re on a mission to bring gardening and farming to urban environments and small spaces,” said Susan Austin, Sales Director for Minigarden North America.

Home gardening doesn't require a yard anymore.

Minigarden introduces an easy and effective vertical gardening and farming solution for large or small urban environments. All types of plants, vegetables, and herbs thrive in Minigarden because of its unique drainage and water-conserving design. From decorative indoor installations and kitchen herb walls to outdoor balcony and patio gardens, Minigarden beautifully unlocks the growing potential of your walls and small spaces.

Originally developed on a commercial farm in Portugal, Minigarden is a professional-grade product that is now available to designers, landscapers, and homeowners.

“We’re on a mission to bring gardening and farming to urban environments and small spaces,” said Susan Austin, Sales Director for Minigarden North America. “Its robust professional-grade quality, ease-of-use, and consumer-friendly price point make the Minigarden a product that can deliver on the promise of vertical gardening.”

Unlike some vertical garden systems, Minigarden is not a trickle-down system. Its patented independent irrigation system means that each module is watered individually, and excess water drains into the base and not to the plant below it.

Minigarden modules work like building blocks. Modules can be stacked on the floor or supported on your walls to create a floating greenwall display.

Minigarden modules come in three shapes: a Vertical module, a Corner module and a Basic Tabletop module. The Minigarden Vertical and Corner modules are compatible with each other and can be assembled vertically, horizontally, back-to-back, or as two-, three-, or four-sided configurations. No other vertical gardening system has this feature. The Basic line features standalone, self-watering tabletop planters that nourish plants as they need it.

“Minigarden delivers on the promise of providing beautiful and easy vertical gardening. The professional-grade modules allow for a large amount of planting in a limited amount of space, and will provide many years of gardening joy to people who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. ” explained Austin.

Minigarden comes in five colors, and its clean lines and deep plant sockets allow for an endless variety of plants to be grown together. The modules feature a clean, uniform aesthetic that can be used to create an endless array of looks.

Using a series of tool-free clips, the Vertical and Corner modules join together to create any configuration or design. Minigarden’s easy assembly and stacking design are terrific features for those who want a hassle-free system that can be planted and ready-to-go without having to be hung on a wall -- although it can be wall-mounted, as well.

Many large-scale living wall installations worldwide have used Minigarden. Its patented system is created using high-grade copolymers that make these modules a beautiful, low-maintenance commercial-grade product.

“Minigarden is an Interiorscaper and professional designer’s dream come true. The best thing about Minigarden is how it takes care of both plants and people. Plants thrive and grow in these modules like no other, with minimal care required because of its water-conserving and patented self-draining design,” Austin noted.

Minigarden is created from a BPA-free, certified food-safe plastic and is the perfect urban farm for those living in condos or homes with small or no yards. Because Minigarden uses traditional potting and container mixes and is suitable for use with virtually any plant, Minigarden is a system that everyone from the novice gardener to the most expert interiorscaper can use and appreciate.
