I'm new at gardening - seed packet for lettuce says space 8" apart - this bed won't hold many plants at that rate. Do you ignore spacing requirements??

Answer: 
It depends on how big you want the lettuce to grow. If you don't mind smaller heads of lettuce, you can space them closer, 4-6 inches.

Answer: 
Good Morning Jagr! Thank you for your interest in our City Pickers line. I cannot recommend going to radically away from the planting directions. However, I think that you can put them a bit closer so as to fit in a few more plants. We do sell a Big City Picker Kit that provides a 48" x 20" planting surface, if you are looking for some more room. Once again, thank you for your interest in this product Read More

Answer: 
For some veg (like tomatoes), you want to be strict with spacing, but with lettuce you don't need to be quite so concerned. You can plant them closer together, then thin them as they get bigger and eat the tender leaves of the plants you've thinned.

Answer: 
Follow package instructions. You will be amazed how big your lettuce will grow. A side note: you will want to tie twine around the cover because the rubber band provided will break after a few days.

August 15, 2016
Answer: 
Thank you for the question regarding the use of our product. The type of soil/mix is called potting mix. The reason for its use is that once it is moistened it will "wick" the water from the bottom of the planter up towards the seeds/seedlings/plants. Once again, thanks for your interest and enjoy the rest of the summer season.

Little Pickers 24-1/2 in. x 20-1/8 in. Patio Garden Kit with Watering System and Casters, Kid-Themed is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 446.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot Believe the Growth! I don't normally rave about a product but I am really impressed with City Pickers. I've been an avid gardener for years; the past two, trying out the straw bale method. I liked that, but I think City Pickers has it beat! I've experienced phenomonal growth of the tomato and pepper plants in just 4-5 weeks and I will have fruit much earlier than ever before. After reading reviews about the high failure rate of the rubber band included for securing the black plastic "cover", I didn't bother with it, choosing instead to use small clips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are going to give us a great garden this year. We are very pleased with this purchase. We are Seniors and last year we did not have a garden because it had become to hard for us. We did some research and found these on several different sites but at a much higher price than Home Depot. We purchased 3 of them. We had another large planter and after seeing these made some changes and now we have four large beds. Our son built them a platform to sit in at waist level. No more bending over to weed. It is great. (pictures attached) We bought our plants and four large bag of potting soil and things are coming along. Shipping was fast, they came in 5 days. Yes we would recommend these for anyone but especially for Seniors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I purchased these to have my garden after setting up my first set of raised beds incorrectly. These are the perfect solution for people with small spaces, or abnormally shaped areas to hold a garden, without sacrificing loads of extra work time. Simply fill the water reservoir on a daily basis and all grows beautifully. The only issue I had was of the rubber bands breaking after exposure to the sunlight. So an opportunity to purchase replacement rubber bands would be awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reasonable alternative to an Earthbox Great price, especially for the decent quality. Other reviewers complained it was flimsy; perhaps the product has been upgraded since then. I found it every bit as sturdy as a brand-name Earthbox I have, but offers twice the area for half the price. The wheels work well, and press in semi-permanently. The only complaint I have is that the plastic sheet used to cover the exposed dirt is a little small, and hard to attach with the included jumbo rubber band (which I think will quickly deteriorate in the sun). I ended up using binder clips instead, and I just used a white garbage bag, to reduce the amount of heat it will pick up in summer. I was able to use an Earthbox AWS (automatic watering system) with this with just a little modification. I used the AWS filler tube, and cut about 3/4 of an inch off it, which cut the flow of water just before it reached the overflow. In the picture, I'd only trimmed 1/2" off, and it was just barely overflowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I love them. I bought 3. I put a little rod iron stand in the back that helps support, and attached a grow light. Used indoor and out. A little notice about thr drain holes on the side would have been nice, plus I wish the wheels snapped in. Overall a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Setup for a Patio Garden I bought two of these garden beds to grow tomatoes and cucumbers on my patio. Assembly was simple and filling with potting mix was easy enough. It comes with very specific instructions for buying potting mix, garden lime, and fertilizer. I had to search very carefully to find the recommended potting mix - only one of about a dozen types I looked at had the correct ingredients (primary constituent sphagnum peat and/or coir). I followed the very detailed instructions to add the potting mix, garden lime, and fertilizer to the grow boxes, covered them with the included plastic mulch cover, and planted my crop. It is important to use enough potting mix to form a 2" mound above the sides of the box as directed. This will keep rain water from pooling on the plastic mulch cover. In my opinion the casters are only marginally able to handle the weight of the completed garden bed. I broke one rolling against a joint in my patio pavers. I added four segments of 18" long segments of border fencing to form a 12" to 18" high fence box to support my plants as they grow. So far my plants are doing great. Just water DAILY.

The picture of tomatoes planted with lettuce does not fit with the instructions given - they cannot be planted together according to the enclosed planting instructions. The rubber bands provided to hold the undersized black plastic sheet in place didn't even last 1 week! The instructions on placement of the fill tube are non-specific as to which corner of the box to use (not the grid) resulting in my incorrectly placing the fill tube on one of the boxes, and inadequate filling of the reservoir. I like the casters on the box - it makes it easy to rotate the box as the plants grow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wheels aren't sturdy with weight I bought this a couple summers ago and the wheel broke off the first time I tried moving it over my patio. I would say put it where you want it, fill it and don't move it which defeats the purpose of the wheels. Nice place for garden herbs.
