Sub-irrigated Container Gardening

May 6th, 2017 1:00pm - 3:00pm


DIY self-watering container from your recycling

Reservoir planters retain soil nutrients longer, keep soil from becoming compacted, and of course allow you to go longer between waterings. We'll construct an internal reservoir for a window box planter that will keep your flowers, greens, or strawberries evenly moist all summer. Please bring any clean 12-20oz plastic bottles WITH lids that you have at home.
