Starting a Cheap + Productive Container Garden Using Styrofoam Boxes

Starting a Cheap + Productive Container Garden Using Styrofoam Boxes

So in our new house, we have a very small backyard with no existing garden, so I made use of some styrofoam boxes and started a cheap and productive container garden using them.

    Thanks. Great video,

    I’m trying to figure out how to grow veggies in a way that the local critters can’t get to them. Any ideas? I have, at least, four woodchucks (groundhogs) and some deer that come by for snacks.

    Does there have to be holes in the bottom? I live in a second story apartment and am unsure of how to make sure my balcony floor is protected, as well as all the car ports bellow!

    How much compost and trace elements do you use?

  5. sansaviera on November 16, 2021 at 11:42 am

    I love what you did, it looks very neat! Question did you have a sudden urge to get a haircut while doing the video? I had to rewind to make sure I wasn’t having vision issues. 🙂

    Why aren’t you on Instagram ?

    I am trying to prepare a little box garden on my balcony but I am still unsure how many space the plants need. For example the pak choi you planted – is that enough space for them when they are planted in a box with so many other plants?
    Thank you and greetings from Germany 🙂

  8. RyngKatBaDPhi TogetherWithYou on November 16, 2021 at 11:45 am

    I love everything about your ideas, my friend. I shall start the same but tomorrow, I shall cut the fish boxes each one into two parts, then, start my garden in spaceless spaces.
    Welcome to my house to be a garden master. I’m always single all alone. 🤝💛🙏 NE🇮🇳

    Hi..I took free foam boxes from Pack n Save for my seedlings and cuttings. It’s look dirty by time. Now I took the new lot to replace them. The question is how to get rid or destroy the old foam boxes.

  25. Miaw xoxo on November 16, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    Is it save to use them for edible garden? I have styrofoam boxes in my garage too but i’m not sure to use it as a raised bed for growing vegges

    If you have chooks though, better not use styrofoam boxes as they like to eat them.

  30. Albert Tindall on November 16, 2021 at 12:10 pm
