        Off-Grid Self-Watering Container Gardening System: 100% Hands-Free Watering Conversion

        Monday, May 21st, 2012

        Most “self-watering” planters you see at stores are really only self wicking. You still need to manually add water to the each plant container. With my system we have been adding water to one water container, a 5 gallon bucket. With my plants growing larger and the weather heating up the plants are using more water each day. They are up to five gallons of water a day right now. This video shows how to convert from using a 5 gallon bucket to a garden hose or a 275 gallon ICB tote to water your container garden 100% hands free.

          Thursday, May 17th, 2012

          I discovered this stylish, self watering garden containers at the Independent Garden Center Show. What I like about the Lechuza planters is that they come in many sizes, can be used indoors or outdoors, range in style from modern to traditional and they are lightweight! Can you beat that formula. Once the plants are established, you only need to water them about every 10 to 12 weeks. Go on vacation. Perfect for offices, dentist, medical centers and the stylish home.

                  Saturday, May 5th, 2012

                  Ten women got together at my house to build their own self-watering container gardening systems. We had a great time together. Each system was personalized with their own plants. The following day I visited each of their homes to make sure everything was working properly and to enjoy what they had made.
