Setting Up Your Harvi
We want you to get the most out of your Harvi, so let’s go through the steps you’ll need to get started!
Put It Together
Turn your Harvi Garden upside down. Make sure the large reservoir cap is firmly pressed into the large hole in the center of the outside base of the garden.
Place the capillary mat into the base of your Harvi Garden. Make sure it’s laying flat before you add soil.
Filling the Harvi Garden evenly with soil leaving a distance of approximately 1.5” between the growing media and the top of the bed.
Consider what plants you like to eat, what kind of light and temperature they thrive in and the season your location gets the best sun.
Add water using any of the six open holes on the top rim of your Harvi Garden. Water can also be added over the soil. Do not water the four corner holes on the top rim of the garden.
We recommend growing from seedlings as they’re much easier than seeds. Of course, if you have a green thumb, Harvi Gardens love seeds too.
Growing Zone and Season
Make the most of your location and the time of year.
Make sure your garden gets the right amount of sunlight for the plants you’re growing.
What You Like to Eat
This one is the most important!
Give ‘Em Some Space
Just like us, plants need room to grow — some more than others. In general, we recommend at least a half inch between them but some plants need more. Make sure you check the instructions on your seedlings to find out how much room they need.
