Interesting video, Has.  I really like that concept.  But I'm still concerned about how much water may be wasted draining out the holes in the bottom...

Think I'll stick with my stacked buckets and see how that goes for this year.

Haven't actually tried it myself.  Yet.  But will this spring.

You stack buckets on top of each other and watering the first one will water the others.

I'll be cutting holes in the lids to allow the water to drain thru.  And, of course, holes in the bucket bottoms (including the bottom one).

I'm once again having picture posting issues.  Will try it again later...

All right.  Let's try getting this pic again...




HA!  Got it!

Okay, the stacked buckets are on the left.  The other part of that vertical garden looks to be soda bottles stacked on top of each other.  I'm sure they're wired to the fencing.

Marie,  Which photo option did you select?  The first line, the second line or the third line?  The middle line allows the photo to be enlarged by the members.

I've seen some really neat ideas just by doing a Google search for vertical gardening or small space gardening photos.  That's where I found that pic.
