Stacking Planter FAQ's

Grow anything from herbs, lettuce, strawberries & greens to full blown fruiting crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini even tubers such as potatoes, carrots and beet root!   

Here’s some inspiration 🙂 :
Beet Root |  Lettuce | Spinach | Kale | Capsicum | Tomato 

Cucumber Celery | Beans | Herbs | Strawberries | Carrot 

Swiss Chard | Pumpkin |

You get the picture right!   🙂   You can pretty much grow anything.   Just ensure you’re providing enough sun…

Yes certainly.   The stacking planters in the 5 tier sets are exactly the same as the hydroponic kits.   So you can buy a small 5 tier set and see how it works, then once you’re happy scale up to a larger set-up if desired…

Yes.   Food Safe Polypropylene #5. Like what yogurt containers are made of except we use a lot more of it.

This all depends on what you want to grow.   The 33cm width pots have a capacity of 5 litres each which is suitable for lettuces, herbs, spinach, beetroot, flowers and plants with smaller root systems.   The 45cm width pots have a large 15 litres capacity each.  This is ample space to grow all kinds of fruiting vegetables such as tomatoes, capsicum, eggplant and even pumpkin or watermelon if you really want! 

Yes, and many customers do.   Make sure you use good quality well draining potting mix.   Great news is Mr Stacky is modular, so you can start small and build a self sustainable garden over time.   

While the poles are not 100% necessary, Mr Stacky planter sets come with a center pole which adds stability and allows you to move the garden from above as the pole extends above the planter.  Other stacking planters do not provide this.   This also allows you to convert your 5 tier kit into a hydroponic tower kit if you want. 

Simply water the top pot!   Each stacky has drainage holes in the center and outer clovers which disperse water optimally to touch all the root systems on the way down.   This flow through design ensures pooling of water or root rot. 

Yes. Here is a short video
We have raised garden kits for you to purchase or alternatively, just buy some 19mm galvanized metal poling and cut to required size, then put 20mm PVC over this, then either 32mm PVC (for medium planters) or 50mm PVC (for large planters) cut to required length.   The planters sit on the riser PVC and the center pole provides stability as hammered into the ground.

When you see the bottom dripping, this means the above layers are saturated so you want to stop watering before you see drips from the bottom.   As a rule of thumb it’s much better to provide regular small doses of water opposed to less regular longer feeds.  

For example, the DIY systems normally feed 3 times a day for example 9am, 1pm, 5pm at 1 minute intervals.  

As long as you have a support through the middle, you can stack them as high as you want!.     

Some stackable planters on the market use inserts inside each planter designed to hold water in each layer.  This is not good practice!  Pooling water promotes disease such as root rot.   Mr Stacky planters are FREE FLOWING.   Free flowing water is essential for transfer of nutrient and oxygen to the root zone and we do not recommend inserts. 

Yes.  See these DIY Towers or the 3 Tower Smart Farms for a simple guide.   Anyone can do this.

Herbs have got to be the most rewarding crops to grow in containers.   Firstly, herbs are really easy to grow!   Of course theres heaps of tips and tricks to keep your herb garden lovely and lush.  Simply put, potted herbs need to even moisture.   It’s so important to ensure that you water your herbs regularly, but not too much.   Luckily Mr Stacky vertical gardens are designed in such a way that the water is evenly distributed and no pooling exists which would lead your herbs to root rot.   When growing herbs in containers it’s also recommended to use a good liquid seaweed (or worm tea).   Better yet, grow them hydroponically.  With Mr. Stacky you can choose either option! Just imagine having all of the following herbs neatly organised growing in any small area on your balcony or backyard.   Herbs such as Chives, basil, parsley, coriander, sage, thyme, rosemary, lemon thyme, mint etc etc!

    I can’t believe how easy it was to make a compact herb garden! It’s a 4-tier, south-facing beauty with parsley, Italian parsley, cilantro, sweet basil, Thai basil, and dill. My husband and I are learning to cook healthy and now our herbs are right at our fingertips! Thank you, Mr. Stacky!

    I bought one, and I went back a week later and purchased another. I absolutely love these! I am currently growing strawberries, radishes, carrots, as well as 4 different types of peppers. They are all growing way better than I expected. Only flaw in this item is the giant hole in the center. But I just put dowels in the center to help fill the hole, and to also provide extra support since that side of the house gets major wind. My mother has already bought one of these due to my recommendation. They are absolutely worth it.

    Good product. I think most planters are overpriced. On this one it seems well made and great size for strawberries. I got the large planters. Even though I think it would be at a better price point to go with the 5 tier. I have bought 3 and they are working out well.

    Terra Cotta is ORANGE, I saw others mention it on Amazon but thought it wouldn't be that bad but hello traffic cone orange strawberry planter. I planted the top half with bareroot pineberries and the bottom half with bareroot strawberries. Go with the stone or black colour

    great solution to wet roots
    I bought this to plant strawberries and absolutely love it. If you put the right mix in the containers this really helps to keep the strawberry roots from getting too wet and you can put it up on a plant stand like I did to keep it away from opossum and raccoons. It is also easy to move, so if there is too much rain moving it onto the porch is very easy.

    Compact arrangement for a variety of plants
    this is a little on the pricey side especially with shipping, but it is perfect on my small front porch. It needs a very sturdy hanger because it is quite heavy when filled with wet potting soil. It accommodates a variety of plants in one compact arrangement. I liked it so much I ordered it as a house warming gift.

    I read the reviews before I bought this planter and had mixed feelings about it until I opened the box and put it together. It is literally a snap to put together - the pots fit right on top of each other and seat into place easily. I filled each level with potting mixture and put them together before I planted my strawberries. I live in Phoenix and may need to move the planter out of the heat/sun if necessary and it is small enough to be able to easily do this - yet it holds a lot of plants. I was able to plant a dozen strawberry plants and I am confident it won't be overcrowded later with additional growth. I can't think of another type of planter that costs less than $30 and will hold a dozen plants, can you?

    Too small. I try to use it for my strawberries but the plants are too tight. I keep it because I might use it for my herbs instead.

    Love the design, but wish I had chosen a different color.
    The planter is great and does exactly what I wanted it for. I am only giving 4 stars because orange color is not terracotta as I had thought, it is VERY orange! I am just hoping that the leaves will cover most of it as the plants grow.

    Herb garden
    I planted strawberries in two and herbs in the rest.the strawberries never produced . It may be that the planters are to small to spread, but the herbs did fine. So if your interested in a herb garden. It's great.

    Great small-space gardening option. The transaction went fast and my planter arrived in about a week, faster than I expected. It took about 5 minutes to assemble and now I have a great mini-garden for my apartment! It's easy to use as well.
