Easy to build self-watering containers

I imagine these would work better than the 5 gal buckets I’ve used. Most garden plants are massive and need a large root structure to really reach a point where they can effectively continue fruiting.


i think i’ve watched this guy’s videos (and even this video) before. he’s a funny guy, and he’s good at explaining the process.


I don’t think I saw a reason to container garden. Especially given the large greenhouse he was assembling them in. I can understand needing to container garden in apartments/small lots/rentals. What am I missing?
