Here's how we're doing it...
- Compost (optional)
- seeds (or plant starts)
- pottery or dishes that you can break
- some medium size rocks
Step 1: Since our containers don't have drain holes and I don't really want them to in the house as I don't have a tray to catch the water we smashed some ugly coffee mugs that we found at the
We put the mugs into a pail with a couple of rocks. Put the lid on a shook the pail.
Dropping the pail a few times helped the process along immensely.
Step 2: Cover the bottom of your container with the broken pieces. (I did this dangerous job).
Step 3: Mix the soil and compost. We were winging it with the ratio here but we mixed it about 3:1.
Step 4: Cover the broken dishes in you planting container with the compost mixture and fill the container almost full.
Stay tuned to find out what we plant!!!
