Making Sub-irrigated Planters

This is my original concept. It is perfect for growing smaller garden plants like lettuce, etc. I hope you like it.

Materials:

Instructions

  1. Remove Clorox Wipes label and thoroughly wash container.

  2. Poke or melt several holes into top rim for container aeration.

  3. Clean Dannon Yogurt container and drill or melt 2 x 1/4 inch holes into base.

  4. Cut polyester shoe lace to 11 inches in length.

  5. Pull lace through holes in yogurt container so that both ends hang down.

  6. Poke or melt several holes into yogurt container for root aeration.

  7. Fill yogurt container with slightly moistened potting mix.

  8. Add 3 cups of water to wipes container.

  9. Place yogurt container into wipes container.

I am currently growing spinach, mustard, arugula and 2 types of lettuce. It's working great. I water very infrequently. I recycled 18 containers thus far!
