PVC Garden "Pots" -- On b organic with michele beschen episode #212, a CSA had lots of unique planting methods that were inexpensive, deer- & weed-proof, AND accessible to someone in a wheelchair. PVC pipe (10’ lengths) cut into 3 equal pieces, secured in the ground with a piece of rebar, and filled it with soil were used to plant all sorts of vegetables and plants, 1 plant per "pot". Each plant took just one cup of water per day to thrive! Here is a similar idea on a DOT government website. Idea
PVC Strawberry Planter. I'll have hubs build a decorative "slipcover" made of pickets that match our fences over it and have him wait to drill holes until the pickets are in place.
PVC planters for veggies - make any height you want
What a great idea to fancy up that flower garden! Going to have to try this ... Another pinner says these are easy! Lowes sells the 4 to 6" round PVC pipe with holes already drilled. Purchase an end cap, fill with rock, soil, and plant or put tower in the center of a large pot to stabilize, and add height and color to a container that has trailing plants (no end cap or rock needed if you are placing in a container)...
Hydroponic set up - pvc pipes. We made two of these--one 4" and one 2". Very successful. Nice job!
Container sizes for various vegetables
