This GreenSmart pot is about 6 years old now and has produced loads of pesticide free produce for us on our balcony. It currently has garlic growing but it also had some rock melon (cantaloupe) seeds in the soil which sprouted unintentionally.
The only thing I do to this pot is add water to the reservoir every couple of weeks.
It is incredible how plants adapt to their environment. The melon has found its own support on the ledge of the balcony railing and is growing happily. You can grow anything in GreenSmart Pots!
