FAQs for European Customers

1. What are the prices of the Tower Garden® and the LED light kit in Europe?

Regrettably, payment via installments is not available yet in Europe.

full upon placing the order.

3. How long does it take for Tower Garden ltd. to ship an order and where will my tower be shipped

5. How long will my initial supply of nutrients last?

Depending on climate, your initial supply of nutrients will last between 4 to 6 months. Warmer climates use more
water/nutrients due to the evaporation factor.

6. How much does it cost to reorder nutrients?

7. What are the nutrients made from?

We use a Tower Garden® proprietary nutrient ionic mineral solution by the name of ‘Tower Tonic®’.
Tower Tonic® is the most unique all natural mineral-based nutrient solution ever formulated. In fact, contrary to
conventional hydroponic farming where a different nutrient mixture is needed for each crop, Tower Tonic® can be
used for all vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers which can be grown on Tower Garden® towers.

Mineral Blend A:
• Total Nitrogen (N) – 2.0%
• Calcium (Ca) – 1.0%
• Chelated Iron (Fe) – 0.05%
Derived from: Calcium Nitrate, Iron Sodium EDTA
Mineral Blend B:
• Available Phosphate (P2O5) – 1.0%
• Soluble Potash (K2O) – 3.0%
• Magnesium (Mg) – 0.5%
• Sulfur (S) – 3.0%
• Boron (B) – 0.01%
• Copper (Cu) – 0.001%
• Manganese (Mn) – 0.01%
• Molybdenum (Mo) – 0.0005%
• Zinc (Zn) – 0.005%
Derived from: Potassium Nitrate, Potassium Sulfate, Magnesium Sulfate, Boric Acid, Copper Sulfate, Manganese
Sulfate, Sodium Molybdate, Zinc Sulfate, Phosphoric Acid.

8. What is the tower made from?

Tower Garden is made from the safest high-end UV-stabilized, BPA-free, food-grade plastic. The high-quality resins
used by Tower Garden are compliant with both U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines for food contact and
European guidelines for Restriction of Hazardous Substances.
Our resin material is also completely opaque — it keeps out light, inhibiting algae growth. This keeps your plants
happier and gives your Tower Garden a longer life.
9. What are the differences between the American and the European models?

The main difference resides in the reservoir at the bottom of the tower.
The American model sold in the US and Canada has a 20-gallon (75 L) reservoir which is round and green.
The European model features a 16-gallon (60 L) reservoir which is white and has a decagonal shape.
The reservoir of the European model is equipped with built-in wheels. The American model needs a special
accessory to be wheeled around.
Additionally, there is a gauge on the reservoir of the European model allowing to check the water level without
having to open the container. Such feature does not exist on the US model.
The components of the tower itself (referring to the white part of the tower where crops are planted) are exactly the
same for the towers sold in the USA/Canada and in Europe.
Tower Garden®’s nutrients are the same for the USA, Canada and Europe.
The pump models may vary depending on countries because of the different voltages involved.
In other words, except on the reservoir at the base, the European and the American towers are the same and will
produce equal results/crop yields.

10. What is the difference between the home-use tower model and the tall commercial towers used in
a Tower Farms?
A Tower Garden for the residential market can accommodate 20 plants (28 plants with an extension) while the
commercial tower is modular in size and can be used to grow up to 52 plants.
Since the commercial Tower Garden is taller, its pump is slightly more powerful than the one used for the residential
model. Furthermore, commercial models feature an auto fill valve, and a drain valve.
There is a minimum order of 10 towers for commercial towers. There is no minimum for the residential model.
In spite of their differences in size, the component used for the tower itself (referring to the white planting pots) are
the same for the commercial towers and the residential towers. Also, the same nutrients are used for commercial
and residential. In other terms, whether using a total commercial tower or the smaller home-use model, you can
obtain the same results in terms of quality and crop yield.
11. How many plants can I grow on the residential model?
You can grow up to 20 plants. In the US and Canada, Tower Garden sells an extension kit allowing to grow up to 28
plants. Such extension kit is not available in Europe.

12. Is the microgreens attachment available in Europe?

The microgreeens attachment will not be available in Europe in 2018. Tower Garden has not made an
announcement as of yet indicating whether or not it will be sold in Europe and when should they decide to do so.

13. What is the electric consumption of a tower?

Tower Garden® Towers are equipped with a low wattage submersible pump (45 watts only). The pump is
programmed to be on for five minutes and off for 15 minutes on a continuous cycle with the help of a timer. The
operational cost will vary depending on the rates of the power company within each geographical market. On
average, it will cost about 1 euro per month/per tower.

14. What is the electric consumption of the LED light kit?

Powering lights for recommended 14 hours per day costs about €0.30 a day
