  1. Vegetable Container Bible

    VEG GARDENERS CONTAINER BIBLE

    By Edward C. Smith This is the newest edition of INCREDIBLE VEGETABLES FROM SELF-WATERING CONTAINERS. Edward takes this edition further, and shows us how to grow a bounty of food in pots, tubs and other containers. Not everyone has a big garden but they would like to have their own vegetables and here, Edward shows you how to grow them even if you only have a patio, deck or balcony. Even someone with a big garden can profit from growing many of their plants in containers and you can end up with more food and less work. Edward gives you choices between traditional containers and his self-contained pots system. The biggest problem with growing vegetables in containers is the soil dries out and loses nutrients quickly. After much experimentation, Ed Smith developed his amazing system to solve those issues. His containers have water reservoirs and false bottoms that separate soil from the water, allowing air to reach the soil. Wicking systems move water from the reservoir to the soil. It?s important to pair the right sized pot and reservoir capacity with the specific crop, along with an appropriate soil mix. Smith details the specific needs of a wide variety of vegetables, offers advice on best varieties for container growing and provides organic pest and disease solutions. Softcover 254 pp Learn More

  7. Self Watering Containers

    INCREDIBLE VEG FROM SELF WATERING CONT ***sold out***

    by Edward C Smith. The biggest problem with growing vegetables in containers is the soil dries out and loses nutrients quickly. After extensive experimentation, Ed Smith developed his "amazing POTS System" to solve those issues. POTS stands for portable, organic, trouble free, and secret soil formula. Self-watering containers, which can be bought or made, are key factors. They have water reservoirs and false bottoms that separate soil from the water, allowing air to reach the soil. Wicking systems move water from the reservoir to the soil. It's important to pair the right sized pot and reservoir capacity with the specific crop, along with an appropriate soil mix. Smith details the specific needs of a wide variety of vegetables, offers advice of best varieties for container growing and provides organic pest and disease solutions. Softcover 254pp. Learn More
