    Ive been buying the tubs of cat litter vs the box so I could use as containers. But my garden is in the front of my house so I use decorative pots as well. Will be adding a large wooden surround to hide the buckets this year. I don't use pea gravel Mine are self watering containers I drill holes on sides put in tin cans make shelf and line with weed barrier cloth so soil cant get down to water reservoir. In my large planters (for my fruit trees) I plan to use crushed  milk jugs  and scraps of Styrofoam to keep them lighter. Also will line with weed barrier cloth but that wont last. I'm going to use a cork to regulate drainage of these.

    wow thanks a million! Single mom with extremely low income here and I will definitely go to my local sams/costco and wegman's.
    Thanks for passing on the information. Happy Gardening!

    Your garden is beautiful 🙂 I'm so glad I found you I'm so doing the buckets thanks again :)

    I have my own "HOME DEPOT BUCKET GARDEN" — and a lot of vegetables and herbs have done well in them, but I like learning about other alternatives. I started my first raised bed last year.

    This is a great idea, just now starting my own garden, Already have rain collector started, so now ready to start planting.Thanks

  • Great video! You have such a pleasant voice to listen to! 🙂 My husband works as a chef, so he has lots of these containers available. I was thinking of buying long rectangular containers to start our container garden until I saw this video and thought "Oh duh!"

    So if you know anybody that works in restaurants, that's a good resource! Also a great source for large gallon glass jars (think olives & pickles) for kombucha making/fermenting, too!

    I was blessed to get large tree pots, from a nursery that closed. I was only able to bring about 20 when I moved, but I had around 65, and had wonderful veggie garden. I love the idea of the buckets. I just texted my friend, asking her to see if she can get some, next trip to Sams. Thanks so much for that suggestion.

    thanks for sharing the free bucket tip. I recently moved into a property that has a nice flat backyard but we have a septic system and im reluctant to plant near the drain field. This will be my first try with containers.

    This will be my second year on container crops. I have a little green house that I bought at Amazon. We bought buckets and Tupperware containers so I really appreciate you sharing where we could get free buckets. Thank you and we will see you soon. Thank You, I'll be.watching!!!!'

    Hello, thought you might like to see the container I use. They are 1000 liters big and you can often get them for free from kijiji. These ones I modified the sides so i could plant all 4 sides and the top.

    I just love this video!! 🙂 Subscribed! 😀 Unfortunately, our Sam's Club here does not have a Bakery. 🙁 Where else would i get some free Icing/frosting buckets? Thank you for your help! :)

  • angela sheppard 1 year ago

    Hey good idea for the containers.Like the tip for the free containers.i found out today that farmer's markets or street side fruit/veg stands give away their wire-wood boxes at end of season.jus a thought.

    Hello there, loved your tips on getting free containers & growing vegetables in them. Wanted to add to the free source one more source. Many of us buy our laundry detergent powder in buckets from bulk stores like Sam's . Once the powder gets over, those buckets can be also used as good containers for the vegetables.

    I am starting in the spring growing my vegetables in containers due to raccoons. Got any good starting vegetables?

  • Alex Blake 1 year ago

    The side drainage holes are super important in my experience.

    Excited I found your channel!  I am an avid container-gardener.  I only grow flowers though.  I would like to get in to growing food.  Seems a bit more involved however…

    Great video Miss Mann!!
    I use plastic buckets for tomatoes, peppers, and carrots. I use recycle containers for corn and green beans.
    I have a lot of friends who don't bother recycling. I just toss my recycle in boxes and the town hauls it off.
    I have also found things like the plastic containers that butter and other food items come in great for seedlings. Large juice bottles and milk jugs are also great for basil and parsley plants. Plastic water cooler jugs are great also. Cut the tops off and your ready to go.
    I also make containers from wood scraps like 1×2,1×4,1×6 and 2×4.. Avoid treated lumber and lumber that is coated with stain or paint on both sides. Cinder blocks are great. They have 3 holes in them and are good for carrots. I set them right on the lawn. I dig up the grass first. After the harvest I pick up the block, and spread the potting mix out and I'm ready for spring.
    I often cut my 5 gal buckets in half if I don't need a lot of depth. The left over ring does not go to waist. I set the on the lawn and drop a tomato or pepper in it. Now all I have to do is use a weed wackier around them to cut the grass.
    You've got a great garden!
