GardenSoxx are an INGENIUS way to grow a garden. You no longer have to worry about the tilling, weed pulling, back breaking work of a garden. No longer will you have to use tools such as a tiller, tractor, shovel and or rake.

This NEW way of gardening can be beneficial to any and everyone who wants to grow their own organic vegetables, fruit and flowers. You will be amazed at just how easy it is. The 1,2,3 method of growing is great.

GardenSoxx are the answer to those who want a garden but who do not have time or place to grow. When you have a traditional garden, you need a fairly big area and it requires some tools. With our GardenSoxx you really only need a pair of scissors and place to put on your deck or anywhere that it can get some sun/shade.

We at Blue Ridge Organics put them right on our deck and all through the summer we had vegetables that we could go right out of our kitchen door and pull our goods right off the vines. When we tell you that it is easy as 1,2,3  we mean it.

Here is how you do the GardenSoxx:

1. Place whereever you want to grow your garden and then take a pair of scissors and cut a hole big enough to either place seeds or a plant bulb. Do not to make the hole too big. (BEFORE you cut the hole for the flowers play around with the placement of them in the GardenSoxx, if they are hanging flowers you may want them closer to the front of the GardenSoxx so they can hang over it).

2. Place your seeds or your plant bulbs in the hole that you have prepared. Ensuring that the plant bulb is totally covered by the compost in the GardenSoxx.

3. Water, water, water!!! You really need to water about every other day, this also depends on where you have placed the GardenSoxx, if it is in direct sunlight/heat you may want to water everyday. You will be able to determine by checking to see the moisture level when you touch the GardenSoxx.

Really that is how simple and easy it is to have a Garden with Blue Ridge Organics GardenSoxx. You will be amazed at how fast and big your flowers, vegetables will get. The Super Compost that is in the GardenSoxx allows them to grow with the correct amount of nutrients and water that they need.

Once your growing season is over all you need to do is to cut the plant at the root right above the GardenSoxx. Then you are able to plant other vebetables, fruit and flowers. The Super Compost takes what is left in the GardenSoxx and breaks it down and reuses the nutrients from that previous plant.

Who would not want to plant a garden (vegetable, fruit,herbs and flowers). This process takes about 30 minutes or less. Then you can go and do all the other things that you enjoy doing in the Spring and Summer.

Our GardenSoxx can also be a great way to teach children how to plant. They will be in awe of how it grows and they can also reap the benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables that they either planted by themselves or helped you with.

Check out our 30 minute videos and see how easy it really is..

Well, I must say this year has left a lot to be desired as far as growing a GIANT PUMPKIN!!


I planted like I do every year with anticipation that this would be the best yet to come. The pumpkins started off really strong. On April 20th I placed them lovingly and gently in the ground; as I do every year I watered, fed, talked to and spent most day and night ensuring that they were headed for something great...

The coming months were at times exciting and disappointing as it seemed like they were growing steadily and quickly. I was so excited to see that all the work prior to April 20th was going to pay off.

The season does not start in the ground, it starts at my home on a windowsill with light and warmth. You see I plant the seedling from my precious seeds that I have grown or acquired over the last few years. I have to prep the seeds so they will sprout and then place them in Blue Ridge Organics SUPER COMPOST to grow to a sturdy size for planting in the ground. Then I place them (when they are big enough) outside to get use to the harsh reality of "nature" and all that comes with being outside. After they have passed the test of "hardiness" and the sun shine is more apparent with no fear of frost; I then place in the ground that I have also lovingly mixed with Super Compost.

So back to the excitment and disappointment of growing my Giant Pumpkin this year. They really took off; the vines responded so well to the soil and they started growing into perfection. I was so pleased but I also knew I needed to be careful about my excitment as many times through out this Giant Pumpkin process I have had many let downs. However, I just knew that after I pollinated them they were headed for great things...

They were doing so well from April on until June.. As everyone knows this Summer was NOT the typical Summer. It was the hottest on record for many areas including my own area. Normally that is not too much of a big deal as the Giant Pumpkins reguire a great deal of heat, which means I had to do a lot of watering. All that was great, we muttled along through the June month still hopeful for the other two plants that seemed to be hanging on.

June 29th proved to be the worst time for my pumpkins. I am sure for those reading this that the date June 29th holds some not so great memories. Nelson County and other Counties were hit with what was soon to be known as a "DERECHO"...

The Derecho caused severe wind damage, trees down, and power outages. The winds in my area got to at least 80 mph; for a pumpkin of stealth size that could only mean one thing-its DEMISE!!! The wind blew so hard that when my wife went down to check on them there were rocks, dirt, tree branches literally stuck into the pumpkins..

So needless to say Cheech & Chong (as I so lovingly call them) did not make it. Oh well, this is part of the GIANT PUMPKIN process. I know you say it seems like a lot of work to take such a chance with Nature, but you would not believe how gratifying it is to literally watch something grow and potentially break a record for its size.

I will do it again next year and look forward to writing about the experience as it unfolds.
