Has anyone tried Bloom Masters Planters?

Post  miinva on 12/30/2011, 1:18 am

I saw a youtube video about using the planter boxes from Bloom Masters, and they look really interesting! I love my SFG's, but I'm wondering if I could grow more vertically using Mel's Mix in the planter boxes? This year I did very little with our garden, but I'm aiming to do more this year, and it may include giving these a try.

Hey there miinva

They look like really interesting containers, but limited for sfg to small plants. I do I love you the idea of being able to cascade your flowers down the side.

hmmm... perhaps we could build a similar container out of wood using a keyhole saw or a foster bit for the small holes on the sides. Sure would be lots of work though.

Hi,

Those look really neat. However in the South they would be a nightmare to keep watered.

My concern would be 'How do you keep the potting soil from washing out?' Well, they say it won't wash out, but, you must use their potting mix, which must be made of something that dosen't wash. And you have to fertilize every week.

But, the cascadeing flowers are beautiful!
