* Raised Bed
* Covered by net
* May function as a greenhouse
The innovative combination of these three components makes growing vegetables easy and enjoyable. Your plants will benefit from each of the three components.
In a raised bed, you can achieve four times higher yield than a traditional vegetable garden. This is mainly due to three things.
1. Soil Structure: In a raised bed, the soil is more porous because no one is walking on it. This makes it easier for the roots of the plants to seek downwards instead of outwards. Consequently, you can place the plants closer together and harvest more.
2. Temperature: The bed is heated faster by the sun because the soil is above normal ground level and is heated from above as well as the sides. The temperature of the soil is essential for sprouting and growth. Even a few degrees extra will extend the growing season significantly.
3. Light: As the bed is raised above normal found level, the plants receive more light. This is particularly important during the short days of early spring and late autumn. Extra light makes it possible to place the plants closer together than in a normal garden layout and the yield per square foot will increase.
One of the most important advantages of the Grow Camp is that there is no need to use pesticides. The net cover effectively keeps out carrot flies, white garden butterflies and snails. It will also protect from deer, cats, mice or other pests.
The plastic foil cover protects against the cold and against light night frost, and the tent will act as a greenhouse. This extends the season considerable. Already at the end of April or beginning of May, you will be able to harvest potatoes and prepare the first bowl of home-grown salad.
