I was so excited the day our Greenstalk arrived that I could not wait to unbox it and start planting.
I sort of had an idea of what to put in it and then as I begin to fill it with potting soil I soon realized the possibilities were endless.
There is so much room in this structure, I was truly amazed.
I had done some research on the greenstalk prior to making the purchase.
I will admit that for awhile I had an off brand in my amazon cart for weeks, however there was something holding me back from clicking the purchase button.
As I read through hundreds of reviews for the off brand product, I realized people were having to modify the watering systems to help create a better flow.

Who has time for that, not me! I want a “one and done” type of product that is not a lot of fuss.
If you are like me then the greenstalk is for you. Yes they are pricey, but from what I’ve heard from others who are on YouTube that have them they last for years.
After unboxing I could see the quality of the greenstalk was made with really good materials that it would indeed stand the test of time outdoors through storms and other types of bad weather.
Knowing the greenstalk would remain on our back porch I splurged and purchased the roller base to go with it, which ended up being perfect!
Now for the fun part, planting inside the stock.
Here are the steps to vertically plant a greenstalk:
- Unbox the materials and lay everything out
- Poor potting soil in each tier of the stalk
- Plant seeds or transplant near each edge of the stalk
- Decide which tier of the stalk you want at the bottom and place it on your base if you have one like me that can roll around
- Put one of white watering trays on the base tier
- Layer the same way all the way to the top, you will see a grove is cut at the bottom of each container to set it on top of each other
- The very last tier is your top watering tray which has inch marks labeled on the inside liner, this tier is also a little smaller than your base tier, but the same color as the rest of the stalk
- Now it’s time to water, poor water at the top using a hose or pitcher and watch it trickle through all of the precut holes
I think you will grow to love it as much as we do.
So far we have planted the following in our greenstalk:
Best of luck and happy planting!
