Ready for Container Gardening? Set up your container garden complete with pots, saucers and drip irrigation lines. Learn how to easily set up your container vegetable garden and plant some vegetables in your pots and containers.
We begin with the layout of our containers. We then move on to the choice of potting soil or potting mix you need to use for your container garden. We then set up a main drip irrigation line to water the pots or containers and finally we plant some vegetable plants in the containers garden.
Setting up a container garden (or growing in pots) is easy. All we are doing is getting resin based wine barrels and using them as containers. Resin is very resistant to the elements and will last for many years. Its also safe.
For the soil mix you can use a bagged potting mix or make your own potting mix using peat moss/coco coir, perlite/vermiculite and compost/worm castings.
For setting up the drip irrigation line we are using half inch drip tube as the main line and quarter inch tubing as the emitter line. We are using the fan bubble emitter. This provides great coverage while being inexpensive.
Finally we plant our vegetables in the containers or pots we have for a wonderful vegetable garden which will last for many years.
A container garden will expand your growing area and will give you lots of space for you to grow your fruits, vegetables and herbs.
