_Welcome to the recycled container vegetable garden! What an exciting topic! I had been pondering about writing about this for quite sometime because I myself like many others have been doing this for years.
Actually the only time I buy a new pot is when the plant comes from the nursery. Or I just can't find a recycled pot that is big enough to grow my miniature fruit trees. Yes, I can see this webpage being a major resource for those who want to save some money and help the planet along the way! Me I like to do both and teach others about my experiences. I also really like to find cool content on the web and share it with you! So, lets get started shall we?
Re-Using Recycled Pots
Re-using recycled pots and containers is a great start to saving some money and it gets you into the spirit of recycling. Just like Bub here in the photo to left you can never start recycling to young! Many people are actually worried about using second hand containers because they think that they look old and crapy! This couldn't be further from the truth because a revamped second hand pot or container, can at times look better than when it was first originally made. So, what I have done is created a page where you can go and get all the tips and inspiration that you need! Click the link to get directed to Re-Using-Recycled-Pots now!
Growing Plants in Drums and Bins
A really great method for growing larger plants is in an old second hand drum or bin! You will need to thoroughly wash these types of containers though because many of them have had some type of nasty chemical or paint in them in the past. One of the most suited edible plant to grow in a drum is the trusty tomato! These guys flourish in deep bins as they can establish a large productive root system to feed itself all the vital nutrients and water that is needed to produce large tasty fresh fruits! As you can see in the photo left there is also second hand wire being used to hold the Tomatoes upright. This works extremely well to support the fruits and makes them readily accessible!
