    I never though of using those big buckets as well, sounds they work out great! Thanks for? watching and sharing 🙂

  • phrankus2009 7 years ago

    Yeah, thanks. I kinda like “bucket-gardens” using the cheaper (thin black plastic) 5 and? 10 gallon landscaping planters (with drain-holes) … This makes it easier to manage individual mixes and to cycle discreet volumes as compost substrate … Also allows individual protection, from cold, in early spring or even lets you drag them inside, or around the yard. Finally, the “bucket method” also helps contain pests and diseases, Limiting the damage and contamination to a single bucket (mostly).

    Great video sis, I use to watch him on our Public Tv station, I loved the show and have practice this type of gardening at another house I use to live in. I was just taking shots of my flowers and wondered if I should put a vid up about them, I love to garden too!!!!! flowers and veggies both. I am just finishing up another flower box for the front of my house,? I did a 12 foot one last year and an eight foot one this year. Looks like your going to have a great garden this year, keep us informed!

    I have to admit Mel’s mix works great, I’ve tried using the pre-mix garden soil for other projects and it? wasn’t nearly as good, sometimes i’m a slow learner LOL

  • Robin Lee 7 years ago

    Thanks? glad you liked it 🙂

  • Robin Lee 7 years ago

    Oh? those would work heck you can use most anything really, being untreated is key, thanks for watching 🙂
