The container garden, or garden-in-a-bucket, is a simple method to grow plants and vegetables when without a traditional in-ground garden, or to simply augment your existing garden. It allows you to mix specific soil and nutrition blends which may be different depending on the types of plants or vegetables that you are growing, and as such will enable you to optimize the growing conditions to produce a higher yield.

    Great vid!

    Here’s a tip, if you have fish or know anyone who has a fish tank collect the water when they clean their fish tank. The ammonia in the fish poo is great to water you garden with. I have a friend who does this with his indoor garden because he lives? in the north and winters are long and his garden grows big veggies.

    I have planted in plastic “Rubber Maid” type containers for many years. They work great, are awesome for soil p/h management, and easy to maintain. However constant exposure to UV light will cause the plastic? to degrade, so plan on replacing your containers every 3 years or so. Other wise you may have a heap of soil and plastic bits in your yard one morning.

    I use ‘landscapers cloth’. It’s the stuff they lay down on areas where they don’t want weeds? to grow through and will then cover it over with wood chips, rocks, etc… It comes in rolls and you can get it at Home Depot, etc..

    hey man? nice vid, what is the material or net u put at the bottom ?

  • ModernSurvivalBlog 7 years ago

    Great idea! I actually just planted a new bucket of onions a few days ago. I’m doing the same with carrots too. One thing though with containers is that you have? to stay on top of watering – more so than if they were in the ground.

    I work for myself and seem to run into multitudes of plastic totes, buckets, containers. Now you? have convinced me that I can reuse them, rather than let them waste in a land fill.

    So, I’ve managed to nurse about 20 of the seedlings along. For some reason, both times that I planted these seeds, only about half would germinate. I might try a different way next time. When they get a little taller, I’ll do a quick? video. So far I really like the container method because it gives you better control of their environment.

    Thanks for video-ing the? pup at the end, what a sweetheart! Update on the onions?

  • ModernSurvivalBlog 7 years ago

    Hi, actually only about half the onion seeds germinated, so I have planted more seeds in hopes of filling this container. I added? a picture on the blog.

    So whens the next update? I’m very interested in seeing how these? guys are progressing.
