The planted up version. The white is almond blossom that has fallen.
Started with the Bunnings $29.99 raised garden.
Some six packs.
A pair tilted.
The plastic bag the potting mix came in, along with one of the micro fibre cloths.
Planted up. Iceberg lettuce.
A large plastic bag, that’s normally the Dalek cover .
a previous planter with Iceberg lettuce growing.
Bunnings near me had the Iceberg lettuce in punnets and in seed packets.
Punnets - six in a punnet.
Seeds as well.
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.
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?
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.
