Wicking Garden Bed Design Pt2 – Building the Bed, Selecting Soils & Replying to Comments


G’Day Folks. This clip was originally uploaded by our good mate Chris when he was looking at setting up his own wicking garden bed. This second episode looks at lining the wicking beds, setting up the reservoir & selecting the soil blend.
I’ve also included a quick explanation of the wicking action at the start & run through how I’ll be setting up the reservoirs of our next beds as well.
PLEASE NOTE, Colin Austin pre-approved Chris’s clips before they were posted. πŸ‘
Chris & Alison were also kind enough to shoot some video of a harvest for this clip & have included it towards the end.
Don’t forget to check out the helpful videos & web links below.
Hope you enjoy the clip & your gardens are booming.
Cheers all. 🐟 πŸŒ±πŸ…
