Indoor Garden

Who says you need a yard to have a garden? Organic plant growing kits from Urban Agriculture are designed for small spaces, so you can grow beautiful flowers and herbs on a balcony or windowsill. Founder Chad Corzine wanted to grow his own organic produce, but having a tiny LA apartment made it difficult. He found that growing kits were low quality—the peat disks just didn’t have the nutrients the seeds needed. So he decided to make something better. Urban Agriculture gives you the right soil, seeds, and container to grow like a pro. The organic potting soil (instead of peat) has all the nutrients needed, and the special hybrid seeds are designed to grow in tight spaces. And the containers are as beautiful as they are sustainable—made from recycled tea sacks from India, each earthy container is unique. They’re shaped deep to keep soil aerated and well-drained while letting strong roots take hold. Grow your own flowers and herbs, even without a yard. With an Urban Agriculture growing kit, all you need is a little space and a lot of sun.

    I see the pots made from tea bags sitting on shelves and even in the kitchen. If they are allowing water to drain through them, then (1) aren't they damp/wet, and (2) don't they need to be set in some other container or water will potentially get all over wherever they are sitting?

  • Chad
    Chad – Special Guest
    4/29/2016 10:50 AM

    @Scott Hi Scott! Our bags are made from recycled tea bags, but they are lined with a recycled plastic so they do not get damp/wet on the side. In the instructions for each kit we recommend you place your grow kit on a saucer in case you over water and there is leakage.

  • Chad
    Chad – Special Guest
    4/29/2016 10:52 AM

    @Dawn Hi Dawn, this will depend on the amount of light and sun your plant receives. In Sunny southern CA it can be as short as a month, but if you plant is only getting a few hours of sun a day it can take upwards of two + months.
