Constructing a Raised Bed Vegtable Garden For A Patio Garden

Constructing a Raised Bed Vegtable Garden For A Patio Garden

Re-uploaded video. http://www.container-gardening-for-food.com
Continuing with my urban “growing-food in small spaces” project, today I tackle raised bed gardening, and show me building a raised bed for my patio garden.

This video was made to be featured on my http://www.container-gardening-for-food.com website where I am documenting my progress, and am writing useful articles on all aspects of growing your own food in a container garden environment.

    Hey, Rick. Didn`t it help to protest about this copyright claim?

    Cheers, Halvor.

    I missed this the first time around. Nice job, but my old woodshop instructors would cringe at the sight of using a pen to mark wood LOL

    Hey Rick, YT are claiming on my video that your "Childhood memories of winter" is in fact owned by Tranquillity (Release from Anxiety) [Bedtime Listening]. WTF?

    Don’t you thing this plywood at the base will get rotting. I had grown turnips in wooden pine chest drawer and there were loads of mites .😚

    You forgot about drainage. It’d be best to drill some holes through the plastic and plywood. No one wants a muddy garden.

  9. Meg Berg on November 1, 2021 at 10:23 am

    How is it going to drain through both the hardboard and the plastic? I’m a bit confused.

  10. Dave Dube on November 1, 2021 at 10:29 am

    Sorry but I missed how drainage was going to occur?

    Nice Re-upload Rick! I’ve not seen many of your older videos so I appreciate this very much. Thank You.

    Rick. Tried to PM you but user lock inplace.
    Here is my message
    Hi Rick,
    Don’t worry!
    Sandy here aka Wiltshire man and G0VQW
    Rick, I have just purchased a new camcorder. A Panasonic HVc210. My old camcorder died!
    Can you furnish me with a "Windjammer" or something I can put on the front of the camera. DOn’t mind paying for it.
    Many thanks
    Sandy
    PS the tomatoes were lovely.

    thanks that was really helpful, it’s almost spring & I’m going to give it a go.

    Sadly, false claims like these have just started appearing right across the youtube community. You just need to dispute it – there are some youtube instructions on my website (music4yourvids.co.uk). Go to "contact" then click the youtube issues link :o)

    Excellent idea Rick, I’ll use this method to construct an indoor Koi holding pond frame for the upcoming winter, Cheers.

  17. Jaya Swamy on November 1, 2021 at 10:38 am

    What about the drain holes

  18. Ray Nicholson on November 1, 2021 at 10:38 am

    I really like your video. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Blythe Aurnia Nadur on November 1, 2021 at 10:43 am

    I need you to come over to my place to build some of these for me :o)

  21. William Lavery on November 1, 2021 at 10:46 am

    Thanks Rick
    I cant believe i never thought of that!

  22. Milltowntoffee on November 1, 2021 at 10:53 am

    Fantastic explanation and simple to understand for a complete novice like myself, but can I ask what sort of base do I need if it’s going directly onto a lawn and should I dig up the grass before filling bed? Hope you can help Rick

    Nice job mate. Maybe going to have a go at raised bed gardening next year.

  24. BigBadgers2001 on November 1, 2021 at 10:58 am

    Excellent. I want to try growing veg, but my garden has two huge Laylandii trees and a really old cooking apple tree. The earth would be full of roots that would suck my veg dry, and as it’s a council property, and overlooked by a large office building, cutting them down is not an option. Plus they are full of wildlife. A raised bed will work a treat to get me started on my veggies. Cheers Rick.

    Splendidly to see Woodglut have new plans which helped me save some money and energy for this construction.

  26. rudylikestowatch on November 1, 2021 at 10:58 am

    Thanks for this. I’ve been wondering how your home patio garden was coming along. All I have is a small back yard and love seeing what others do to maximize production.

  27. William Lavery on November 1, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Hi Rick,
    Im new to gardening & have been watching your allotment videos with interest. I have found your how to make a raised bed tutorial but I’m wondering, if i fit a ply base & line the bed with bin liner, wont the bed become waterlogged?
