Best Vegetables for growing in an Elevated Garden Bed

The Eco Garden is revolutionary in its approach to growing vegetables with a water reservoir and an Air Gap, which increases the oxygen in the roots of plants. Multiple studies have been done to measure the impact of increasing oxygen absorption in the roots of bearing plants and the impact that has on total fruit production. In the studies, tomatoes and peppers both had an increase in production, some by almost 60%! And the vitamin A and lycopene in the tomatoes increased. Brand new study results from Concordia University in St. Paul confirm these findings and more. You can’t go wrong growing peppers and tomatoes.

Lettuce, arugula, and other greens grow quickly in an Eco Garden. Our beginner gardener, Jessica, started a variety of salad greens indoors this year and is happy to find she already has large heads of lettuce in just a few weeks. Radishes also grow quickly in an elevated garden bed.

The Eco Garden is excellent at regulating both temperature and moisture, making it an ideal garden to succession plant. This way, you’ll get crops like lettuce and carrots all season long. This ideal environment also allows root crops to thrive, even though they usually don’t grow well in raised garden beds. Check out the fabulous growth garden blogger Frau Zinnie is having with her beets and carrots already this year.
