Wicking bed

How would I know what size builders plastic would be needed to line a potato picking bin?

Hi @MelC84,

 

Welcome to Workshop. We trust that you'll receive loads of helpful information, advice and inspiration for your projects around the house and garden from our clever, capable and creative community. 

 

Could you please provide the dimensions of the picking bin? Then I'm sure members will be more than happy to assist with what you'd need to line it. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Wicking bed

Morning all. Assuming the Bin is a standard pallet size (about 1.2m square and .9m high) - you will need 3m builders plastic - if it is 3m or more wide. If it's not 3m wide you'll need 2 lots of 3m. 

BUT - what are you lining it for?. If you are going to plant into it then builders plastic might not be the best opotion as it won't allow it to drain - which would be problematic. 

Hope this helps.
