Homesteading – DIY vertical wicking strawberry planter In this episode, Angela shows us how to make a vertical wicking strawberry planter. This is based on the raised wicking bed design, where the bed has a reservoir of water in the base and the water ‘wicks’ up through the soil to the plant roots. Eventually, we plant on having about 10 of these spread out around the place.

    Hi… do you think we can grow carrot too in such vertical pipes ?

    Zwicking really only goes up 300 mm so top needs watering aroung the pipe more often than filling the bottom

    I feel really dumb for using a glass bottle instead of a 2” piece of pvc.

    Great idea but worries me is the bottom plants getting to much water and the top not enough.
