Re: Turning a Bunnings Raised garden into a wicking system.

Great project @Jamespeter100! I bet having the wicking system takes the pressure off during those hot summer periods. I'll have to look into something like this myself as I just can't get out there every day and water.

 

Many thanks for sharing this nifty idea.

Re: Bunnings raised garden turned into wicking system

This is great @Jamespeter100! I was just speaking to my friends who have just started growing lettuce in Tasmania and they suggested going with the punnets to start. Would you say it is easier than from seeds?

Re: Bunnings raised garden turned into wicking system

The seedling in punnets would have taken around four weeks to reach this size.  I purchased seeds and scattered them around the just planted lettuce so I can have more seedlings to make another.
