The Botanica Modular Garden



The Botanica Modular Garden allows you to create your own gardening space on your balcony or any other confined space. The kit includes 3 grey planters and 2 legs. The product is designed for easy tool-free assembly and is perfect for starting your garden. The blocks under the planter help you to adjust the width of your modular structure by simply selecting the appropriate slot. You can collapse and stack the planter and legs for easy storage. By buying additional pieces, you will be able to create your own gardening space: your planter will be ready to be integrated into your chosen design.

  • Versatile, modular raised garden, GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SPACE

  • Collapse and stack the planter and legs for easy storage
  • Planters and legs sold indvidually for a variety of different configurations

Assembly was truly easy, with just a few clics and snaps the entire unit was assembled in merely 2 minutes. Garant suggests that you line the bottom of your modular gardens with gravel to promote proper drainage and adequate root oxygenation. We had river rock on hand, therefore that’s what we chose to use.  Once the gardens were properly lined, we proceeded to fill them with soil.

Incompatible Garden Plants

Plants release varying amounts of compounds which can stunt the growth of other plants by altering the pH level of the soil. While cucumbers thrive when planted near beans, lettuce and radishes, they choke when planted near potatoes. Beans, beets, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers and strawberries make good neighbors, as long as you plant the onions, garlic, leeks and shallots elsewhere. Peppers do well with carrots, eggplant, onions, parsley and tomatoes, but do not plant kohlrabi anywhere near them. Keep lettuce away from cabbage and keep onions away from asparagus, beans and peas. Spinach gets along with everyone.
