    I worried about you cutting out the holes without safety glasses but I do like your idea of the towers!

  • crazywhitedog78 8 months ago

    This might seem like a dumb question. Can you overwinter the strawberries in the towers? 

  • Travis Henry 8 months ago

    serious question! do aquaponic strawberries need winterizing? How long will the towers produce?

    I forgot to mention, but you did know that the original Garden Stick has a water reservoir attached to it at the bottom, right? This is why I asked if you had capped off the sticks you made or not. It would be easy enough to make self-watering containers for the sticks you made, but it would be time consuming to deal with such. I actually think that this is likely a big part of your stick failure for your strawberries in this project. The wicking buckets would probably be an answer to consider if you ever wish to resume this project again. There are easy ways to link them together in a series to water each container through one single watering hole.

    Good luck with it if you decide to give it a try again in the future.

    I like the looks of this white corrugated pipe much better than the stock pvc pipe. I'll have to look for it.

    Couple of questions though:

    Did you just put the ends into the ground of the garden bed or did you cap them first and then insert them into the beds?

    Suggestions:

    Instead of a spade bit, use a hole saw to make the holes bigger for the plants. If your into air pruning to make the plant roots thrive even better and plants grow larger, then drill a hole to the opposite side, cover it with a garden mesh material at the hole and don't plant anything into these extra holes. Believe me, the results will be much better for your plants, as it allows the roots to spread and to get more air about them. Most plants in containers at the store are about 2 1/2-3" in size measured diagonally. Your smaller spade bit hole is actually pretty tiny for these plants. I believe that if you look at the professionally made garden sticks, you will find the holes are larger than what your's were. 

    If you live in a windy area, you still may have to stake these garden sticks to ensure they don't become leaning towers of pizza. A length of rebar can be driven up to about the half way point of the tower and the tower itself anchored to it with some zip ties. The rebar does not have to extend up the full length of these towers to be effective. Believe me, if you plant tomatoes or eggplants or squash in these towers, the can start to lean if not secured in some manner.

    I have taken a single mister that I got at Ace for about $7-8 bucks. I then drilled out a hole and inserted in directly into the end cap lid that I had put into a joint that hooks the pvc pipe to the end cap. I zip tie the mister tube down to the pvc tower side. I can hook up my hose and give the tower an easy mist that can be put onto a timer to ensure I don't over water. Works great, too.

    If your plants died, then I have an idea that your soil mix was wrong for this project to begin with. The tower also requires some nutrients to be added periodically for the best results. The plants can easily get stressed if not treated in this manner. They also require some fertilization and the soil mix is not the same as what is brought out from your garden compost for best results.

    Sounds like your setting this project aside, due to time and energy to keep it going. Sometimes that is the best option as is taking a break from it for a bit, but your video still points out some good things about trying to make a diy garden stick. There are just too many success stories to believe it is not going to work if done properly. figuring out what is proper is something that is an individual task and can be time consuming and costly at times. There are likely many wicking methods that can help with watering. Me, I like my mister solution, but it is somewhat difficult to explain.

    I am moving to a severe water restricted area in the next month (Schedule 5 watering restrictions in place already), so I am looking at methods to deal with wind, dryness and watering. We also have many days over 100 degrees each summer, so that can also add to the planter moisture drying out quickly problems.  I am making up some diy garden sticks to experiment with once I get moved and settled. Your video gives me some ideas to consider.  

    Thanks for posting the video.

    I want to do, and plan on running a soaker hose up the middle, then back down as live in a apt and so don't have a lot of space.
    thanks for vid. plan on putting these in flower bed, and gonna make since no way am paying what they ask.
    will plant lettuce or something facing house or will just put holes on three sides.
    you are right on not wanting to have roots overlap, so thanks for giving me so ideas, and thoughts.
    

  • nocogarden 8 months ago

    i appreciate the suggestion
    its not that i think i cant solve the watering situation. its the idea of spending time money and resources to put this project on life support just to save a little gardening space. i would rather make a bed that takes care of itself than try to force this one to work. 

  • dymondwillow2 8 months ago

    would putting a 1" pipe with coordinating holes to the plants work? water via the small tube, maybe…

  • nocogarden 8 months ago

    measuring tape

  • nocogarden 8 months ago

    from the top. i did scrap this project. it was a pain to keep watered. and most of the strawberries dyed pretty quick.

    I would be concerned about toxins leaching into my food. Pvc and per is bad about leaching. Great idea except for problem of leaching. Bummer.

  • InvincibleRain 8 months ago

    Good idea but i keep hearing about the toxins leaching off plastics into the soil. Who knows if true or the effects. I plan trying this. Definitely looks like they will dry out fast so finding a way to wick moisture up from ground would be good. Pain in the but to water anything here with now outside spicket.

  • msb1123 8 months ago

    how are you watering the tower?

  • faeriegardener84 8 months ago

    Thanks for posting this video 🙂 I'd seen some of these for sale in a garden nursery and was wondering how easy they would be to make. A little more instruction never hurts though lol. I was wondering how you were measuring things out to make it so even etc…

  • Jimmy Hodum 8 months ago

    oh! nevermind! 6:00 mark explains it all!

  • Jimmy Hodum 8 months ago

    is this typical PVC or another material? It looks diff than PVC, is it cheaper in cost? Thanks!
