Wicking Bed 3 [Herbs] | Re-Use Box + Chairs + pipes + carpet + Wheat + pea gravel | Home DIY

I was given some seedlings from the Inspire Collective Meet up. And the herbs given were eager to be planted out. Here is the making of the wicking bed 3 for the herbs

Below shows how well the wicking bed been going on day 117.

Do not plant the mint in the soil/ground directly! It took over my whole bed and I had to put it in a pot in the bed.

19/09/15 Day 28 [Day 2 of the project] One thing I love about making wicking beds is that we can do it in stages and when we have the time to do it. We re-used chairs from the verge to use as the stands Make sure it is balanced
