Shop Online and Save Time for Gardening
Gardening is a time-consuming hobby. Don’t waste this precious commodity by driving around looking for supplies. Instead, head online to Gardener’s Supply Company, where you’ll find everything you need to make your dream garden a reality, including exclusives that you can’t find anywhere else.
The Vermont-based company has been around since the early 1980s. In 1994, the brand made its very first online sale, and in 2009 the business became 100 percent employee owned.
Here are some of our favorite Gardener’s Supply products that will elevate your garden to the next level.
1. Tough Tomato Cages
Without support, tomato plants will eventually sprawl onto the ground, leaving the tomatoes to spoil prematurely and causing the plant to pick up a host of fungal and bacterial diseases. Keep the plants off the ground by investing in some top-notch tomato cages from Gardener’s. The Titan Tall Tomato Cages aren’t the rickety hardware store cages you’re used to. These are sturdy and adjustable, and they feature steel-core supports for added durability. And they’re not just for propping up tomatoes! You can use them for other tall plants too.
2. No-Fuss Irrigation Supplies
Setting up an irrigation system can be complicated, especially if you’re not the DIY type. The Garden Row Snip-n-Drip Soaker System makes installing irrigation easy-—and inexpensive. Setup takes less than an hour and requires no special know-how. Gardener’s also has a Snip-n-Drip Raised Bed Connector Kit for those who want to irrigate raised beds.
3. Clever Hose Storage
Dragging around a heavy hose can be a pain, and fighting it back onto a hose holder can be even more annoying. The Classic Copper Hose Pot makes the chore of watering easier by eliminating the need to wrap a hose around a traditional holder. This copper pot provides an elegant solution for keeping your hose neatly coiled and accessible. It even has holes at the bottom to drain excess water.
4. Crop Protection Worth Clucking About
Keep plants safe from pesky critters with the help of these chicken wire protectors. The large wire covers measure 22 by 45 inches and can protect multiple plants at once. Pop them over an in-ground garden or raised bed to deter deer, rabbits, and other furry pests from stealing your tasty edibles.
5. Winter-Ready Cold Frame
There are very few quality cold frames on the market. Those that are available are often flimsy and not capable of withstanding harsh winter conditions. The Gardener’s Cedar Cold Frame boasts a rot-resistant base and a durable polycarbonate top. It’s built to fit over a 2-by-8-foot garden bed, although it can be placed on the ground. This sturdy frame will help you get the most out of the gardening season by letting you start early and keep going well into the fall and winter.
6. Indoor Seed-Starting Shelf
Get a head start on the season (or improve your succession planting abilities) with this LED SunLite 3-Tier Indoor Garden. The shelving unit features full-spectrum LED lighting and a solid frame made from powder-coated, rustproof aluminum. Each shelf has a watertight tray that can hold multiple flats. You can also use the unit to grow plants like lettuce and microgreens exclusively indoors.
7. Convenient Self-Watering Planter
Never worry about accidentally missing a watering session again, thanks to this Self-Watering Elevated Planter from Gardener’s Supply Co. The attractive, 2-by-8-foot cedar box features an elevated design and durable aluminum legs that make it possible to garden without bending down and straining your back. Four self-watering reservoirs hidden at the bottom of the box ensure that your plants are always well hydrated.
8. Handy Harvester
Sure, you can use the bottom of your shirt like a hammock to hold your harvested goodies. But when you have an abundance of fruits and veggies ready for picking, you’ll want a tool like the Large Mod Hod at your disposal. You can buy these baskets separately or stack several of them for cool-looking storage. The gentle polypropylene mesh protects delicate produce from bruising and makes it easy to hose off veggies before you bring them inside.
9. Vertex Wall Trellis
Most trellises available at big-box hardware stores are BO-RING. But that’s not the case with this aesthetically pleasing trellis that sports an unusual hexagonal pattern. Its width is adjustable, from about 39 to 45 inches, and wall spacers hold the trellis 1-¾ inches away from the wall for better airflow. This distinctive design adds up to 67 inches of vertical growing space to your garden, and the rustproof aluminum frame means you don’t have to worry about storing the trellis away for the winter.
10. Sturdy Supply Cart
Lug supplies around the garden with ease by heaving them onto the handy Gardener’s Supply Cart, available in your choice of brown, green, or red. It’s stronger than the standard wheelbarrow and can hold up to 400 pounds of stuff. The end slides open for convenient loading and unloading, and even when the cart is fully packed, the large pneumatic wheels make pushing or pulling easy.
