Setting Up Your Garden

If you misplace your assembly instructions, simply watch this video and follow along!

Where to Put Your Tower Garden HOME

Since Tower Garden HOME comes with built-in LED grow lights, direct sunlight isn’t required to keep your plants alive. With this in mind, there are many possibilities when it comes to where you can place your unit. The built-in wheels also make it easy to move your Tower Garden HOME from one location to the next.


While many homeowners prefer their garden located in close proximity to their kitchen, it’s not uncommon to see units placed in living rooms, offices, and classrooms. When determining where you should assemble your Tower Garden HOME, consider the following:

  • Room to Grow: When looking for the perfect spot for your vertical garden, you’ll need to make sure you have at least 3 square feet to work with. This gives the plants enough room to grow uninterrupted.
  • Access to Power Source: Given that Tower Garden HOME relies on LED grow lights to stimulate plant growth, the garden must be placed near a power outlet. If you’re preferred destination is far from a power source, an extension cord may be required.
  • Air Circulation - Air circulation is important to the success of your indoor garden, and placing your garden in the same room as a ceiling fan can help facilitate this. Keeping the air moving will help prevent problems such as leaf fungi and garden pests.
  • Consistent Temperature - Plants grown in a Tower Garden HOME require consistent temperatures throughout the day. Finding a spot that remains between 65-75° F is ideal for your garden.
