Regrettably, root crops such as onions, potatoes, carrots, and garlic do not grow on a Tower Garden.
However, some root vegetables such as beets, radishes, and fennel thrive when using Tower Garden technology.
Furthermore, blueberries and raspberries do not grow on a Tower Garden as well.
Although over 150 nutrient-rich crops can be grown using a Tower Garden, bushes, trees, and grapevines do not grow on an aeroponic tower.
When growing crops on a Tower Garden, contrary to conventional hydroponics where the roots grow in a substrate, when farming with an aeroponic vertical system, the roots just hang in the air. Such farming approach is not possible with blueberries, raspberries, nor with most root vegetables.
Even the root vegetables which grow on a Tower Garden are not recommended crops since they produce low crop yield.
