I previously mentioned that I put my Earthbox on a stand, so I didn’t have to keep bending over, after I ruptured a lumbar. Well, I also picked up an Earthbox Staking System, as my peppers are getting a bit wobbly. Nowhere on the staking kit does it say that it’s incompatible with the Garden Stand. However, after being baffled on assembly, I searched online and only the stand says that it’s incompatible with the staking kit. (Not vice versa)
Earthbox basically makes one product, with two different accessories. Why would they decide that the accessories would be mutually exclusive? A simple redesign could solve this problem, but it’s set up so that they both need to attach to the same part of the Earthbox lip.
The kit is a good, though overpriced, idea for newbie gardeners, but at this point, it’s become a typical box with a water reservoir and some fertilizer in it. (And to state the obvious, I’ve alternately used bamboo stakes and ties.)
