Our main test garden in Burlington, VT, is a busy place. There, our Product Testing and Research Coordinator oversees multi-layered tests of our signature products to make sure they work as intended for our customers.
Given that the U.S. has many different regions, each with their own climates, conditions, and challenges, it would be shortsighted of us not to test in those environments too.
For that purpose, we've established a nationwide network of gardeners testing products in unique conditions. These testers, just like our customers, range from novice gardeners to professional growers—and everything in between. And often they come up with exciting new uses for products that we wish we'd thought of ourselves. Here, Laura LeBoutillier sent us a shot of our decorative Essex Round Trellis, intended for flowering vines, as a stunning tomato support. Who says veggie gardening can't be dramatic?
