Exclusive | Compact, Super-Bright Light Garden for Seedstarting Success in a Small Space

  • Perfect for starting your own garden plants from seed
  • Grow herbs, orchids and other plants indoors year-round
  • Bright, energy-efficient lights easily adjust to the proper height for optimal growth
  • VIDEO: Tour our Vermont factory

Grow your own garden plants from seed in a compact space with our Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden. The garden's footprint is just 25-1/2" L x 14" W, so it takes up just over 2 square feet of floor space. It's easy to store, too — just roll it into a closet. Your seedlings will thrive in the glow of the bright, energy-efficient T-5 lights — much brighter than "shop lights" for more robust plants — and the fixtures easily adjust up and down to accommodate plant growth. Includes three watertight plant trays.

  • Assembly required
  • Powder-coated aluminum frame, fluorescent bulbs
  • 25-1/2" L x 14" W x 68-5/8" H
  • Three light fixtures; each fixture holds 2 super-efficient T-5 fluorescent bulbs, included
  • Electronic ballast eliminates annoying buzzing
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

    Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

    It holds a good amount of plants or seedlings. It is fairly attractive and can be moved out of sight when not needed.
    It was quite pricey but I didn't find anything comparable elsewhere.

    Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

    I use this mostly for African violets but it could be used for nearly any type plant. The small footprint is ideal for small spaces, yet it holds a lot on its three shelves. I bought a timer that allows the perfect amount of lighting per type plant. The only thing I didn't like about the stand is that the light fixtures each have 6 ft cords that hang down on the same side that one has to manage with tape or twisties--not so lovely but it works great. I'd buy it again.

        My sister and i put it together. Only problem was the long pieces should be marked top. Once we crossed that hurdle everything fit nicely. We dropped the chain into a straw and threaded it over the pulley and that went quickly. It rolls nicely so easy to position. My seedlings are now happy and doing well and I love the tray. Only problem I now have is the one bulb won't stay on so I have to play with it more to find it's happy position.

          I set up the shelves in my basement and have been enjoying greens all winter. Seedlings pop up quickly. I even stretched a bit during the snow months and have little tomatoes, peppers, radishes, globe carrots, herbs, etc. It's been fun to get into the dirt while the snow flies. And the lights make all the difference in the world with quality growing. Very sturdy and handy to use.

          This was difficult to assemble, especially the light portion. The instructions were horrible. Pictures didn't match the written instructions. There was no guide that named all of the components so that you knew exactly what the instructions were referring to.

          Once the stand was finally assembled, it looks and seems to work well.

          Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

          I wanted T-5 lights and the compact length that would fit a space in my kitchen but was deterred by comments about difficult assembly. My husband and I found only one outright error in the way light installation was pictured, but with patience we got past ambiguities and points that others found difficult. The grommets that attach chains to the top of light fixtures swivel in order to make the fixtures hang level. I was prepared to follow someone's suggestion to anchor the fixtures with cable ties, but that isn't necessary. I might have preferred light fixtures that attach to the side frames with clamps, but the chain assembly was not difficult and height adjustment is easy. This unit looks good and has the right amount of space for my needs. In just a few days I have healthy starts of greens to continue growing inside during winter, taking advantage of the ambient light, heat, and humidity in the kitchen. I'm constantly on hand to monitor seedlings, a great improvement over my old set-up in an outbuilding, so I look forward to lots of vigorous plants for this spring's garden. The assembly instructions could be improved, but I couldn't be happier with this product.

          Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

          We start our vegetable garden seeds, then transfer the seeds into "eight packs", then transplant the little plants into 4" pots, until the outside temps are ready for transfer into the garden beds outside. We were using a homemade shelf unit with flourescent lights and a system of boxes, boxes, and boxes to lower the plants from the lights as they grew larger. The very best features of this unit are the easily adjustable lights and the attractiveness and compactness of the unit. It's everything one needs to grow their own plants in the house. We are planning to replace our homemade cumbersome setup with the larger standard 3-tier system, in addition to our compact unit. We're so pleased to have found this product.

            Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

            My African Violets love this light stand. They have gotten so large I need another stand. The reason I didn't give this 5 stars was that it is not the most simple thing to put together however I was able to do this by myself. The other thing is that the power cords that hang down make the light fixtures off balance. I used tape on the power cords and that helped with that problem. I love the nice heavy plastic trays that come with this light. They are not flimsy at all, in fact there isn't anything flimsy about this light. I also appreciate that I was able to make payments cause this piece is rather pricey. But I would buy it again. In fact I really do need another one for some Orchids I have.

              Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

              I bought this as a gift for my wife. Plus, I was starting to get tired of seeing seedling trays on every possible horizontal space possible in our spare bathroom (aka - the nursery).

              Setup wasn't bad. Would have gone quickier if I fully read the instructions and didn't assume some steps. I had to unbolt/rebolt some things because of screw lengths.

              Set it up in the bathroom and moved all the trays to it. The seedlings were in love. I'd never seen our seedlings take off so quick and fast. Even our discounted venus fly trap found new life and grew so fast it burnt a flower bud on the lamp.

              Look forward to using this when time to prep for the fall/winter harvest.
