Let me show you how I made my own EarthBox. The Earth Box is the ultimate container garden. It’s been a proven design for decades and there are few clones out there that come close to the EarthBox. I think THIS one is the closest to the Earth Box design that I’ve seen on YouTube. Although these are made from fiberglass totes that I had on hand, they can be made from the simple totes that you can buy at Lowes, etc.
Watch how I make them and follow the gardening segments on this channel to see if they do as well as the EarthBox.

    Good Lord, just buy an earth box, unless you got access to alot of free materials.

    I was looking up Earth Boxes on YouTube and came across a channel "John form Growing Your Greens" that said at Lowes they were having a sale on Growums, a child’s version of the Earth Box to teach children how to grow a garden.. He got his for 9.99. I watched the video and it is almost the same. It is purple instead of dark green, but still the same size, but you do have to put the bottom tray together. It comes with seeds he didn’t use and instead of potting soil it came with coconut core, which he added amendments to. Never could see a date on the video.

    I really appreciate your review of your experience with wicking containers and this earthbox clone. I would have gone through literally the same steps you have and probably come to the same conclusion you did. I have a 90-gallon stock tank out back that I was considering converting to a wicking bed. But I’m really happy I saw your other video and went with an EarthBox instead (small scale first!) Mr Leon sounds like he knows what he’s talking about, but the EarthBoxes are so cheap that it doesn’t make sense to "gamble" making your own.

    I’ve only had mine for a day, but I’m pretty confident I made the right choice based on your advice!

    Where is your overflow hole for your homemade earth box??

  6. The Redneck Prepper on August 18, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Did ya make a weeping hole so not to over water ?

  7. Alan McCollum on August 18, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Thank you for your trials and honesty. I have ordered 6 earth boxes and can’t wait to get started.

  8. The OverWorked Gardener on August 18, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    That looks pretty cool I might have to try one of those sometime

  9. antio warr on August 18, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Was wondering what part of nature is the boxes reflecting in it’s function? thx

  10. Llee Stimer on August 18, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    I love Leon!!!!!

  11. hackdlc on August 18, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Okay I saw a use no liquid fertilizer on the earth box web sight. Is that BS or can you add an organic liquid fertilizer as suggested by Gardening with Leon?

  12. comfortably numb on August 18, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    What did you do to copy the Earthbox covers? That’s an important part if you hate pulling weeds.

  13. vickil gabriel on August 18, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Have you done a comparison video yet?
