In The News: Marilyn Denis Shows How a Small Space Can’t Stop You from Gardening

Don’t let a small space stop you from gardening! Marilyn Denis shows you how Minigarden is perfect for those awkward empty spaces – even if you have a brown thumb. Everyone loves a little greenery in their lives (especially after a long, hard winter), but not everyone has the space or time to maintain a beautiful garden, and even fewer people have a green thumb. If that sounds familiar, never fear! You can still inject some greenery into your life. One of Canada’s prominent media personalities, Marilyn Denis, recently shared how Minigarden can transform your tight space into a green masterpiece without tons of effort. Her guest, Canadian Living’s home and garden expert Brett Walther, shows how you can fill in that awkward empty corner in your home with luscious greenery (along with some added air-cleaning benefits!) using Minigarden Corner, or even how brown thumbs can grow fresh herbs year-round in Minigarden Basic.

Victory Gardens Reimagined – Vertically!

You don’t need a ton of space to grow your own fresh vegetables! Our recent feature in 5ive For Women shows you why Minigarden is the perfect gardening solution for your small space. During the war years, Americans were encouraged to plant vegetable gardens to ease the demand for food by the military. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, these victory gardens accounted for as much as 40% of all vegetables produced during the war years! Thanks to advances in plant breeding, we can now grow a lot of what victory gardeners grew in their yards in containers. With today’s emphasis on eating local, Minigarden and our friends at 5ive For Women and Chippewa Valley Growers think it’s time to re-imagine the victory garden – vertically! You can’t get any more local than your own backyard, and luckily you don’t even need one of those any more. With Minigarden, you can defeat your small yard, balcony, or terrace by stacking your garden vertically. Plus – no weeding! Vertical gardening is the new victory garden. It’s perfect for apartment or condo-dwellers, or for anyone who simply wants a smaller, easier-to-maintain garden!
