Video showing how to Make Raised Garden Beds

Putting some videos on these pages to explain some of the making of Raised Garden beds, saves me a bit of time, but also helps make the idea clearer for some that may not have thought about it before.

No matter how small your section may be, you can still have fresh home grown Vegetables!
Plant your potatoes in a rasied block of old tyres, stacked one on top of each other. Work your way around in a circle by putting one thry with a potato, then another tyre with a potato slightly further round than the previous one. Do this until you have about 5 or 6 tyres in place. This will allow you to have those lovely new potatoes for your Dinner without the "lovely new" Cost!!

All your lettuces can be grown in cheap round bowls about 18 to 26 inches across the top. They dont' need to be deep because Lettuce are shallow rooting. Cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, bokchoy etc can all be grown similarly. Pots or buckets, many of them second hand from neighbours who no longer have a use for them. all of them make ideal places to grow vegies when you have a small section, or apartment block.

Try it out, you will be surprised, not only by the lovely flavours you have grown yourself, but also the more money you now have in your wallet because you can go to your garden for those very costly vegies and some fruits.

I realize not everyone can grow large fruit trees, but there is the option of Dwarf fruit trees nowadays, and these are wonderful.
My very 1st one was a nectarine and although it looked very small as far as the head of the tree was concerned, there ended up being a total of 17 Nectarines in its very 1st season! So you see, even fruit tres can grow on your patio in a tub. Just keep them watered and fed as you would any other, and you too will have your own fruit.

enjoy it folks. Don't let lack of space stop your enjoyment of fressh fruit and vegetables from your very own garden.
