Using Brulap

chefrotellAugust 13, 2011

Has anyone built an container with burlap before? Well this is my story. I live in southern Florida where you can not plant in the ground. So I am tring container growing. So made these earthpots with an 18 gallon container and some large rocks with a watering pipe and used burlap as the wick and also the screen over the rocks. I did this to keep the cost of the pot down and also to use the whole plasic container with very little waste. I would also like to ask any one how often do you water them? How often do you give them nutrients? Also with living in Florida we get a lot of rain and how much ends back in the container?

It's kind of hard for me to tell what you are talking about. A picture or two would help.
