Self-Watering Containers, an Earthbox Photo Tutorial

Don't have space for a garden? Don't have the strength or energy for digging, raking, hoeing, and weeding? A self-watering container may be for you. Here's how I set up my self-watering containers, Earthboxes, for this year's tomatoes.

These containers look so easy to do, and seem like they would adapt to so many plants and placements. I like that they would be at a height for sitting down and, if desired, could be emptied, moved, and started over with new plants as desired. Thanks for letting everyone know about this, and for explaining it so well! Hurray!

Didn't even know these existed, but they sure look nice and easy to use. Really like the caster wheels on the container. Thanks!

Yes, it is good to know these are around and have it explained so well. I find the printed instructions unbelievably difficult sometimes. I have a 3 foot raised bed that I made that is such a pleasure on those days when it is hard to bend down.
