    I really enjoyed viewing this video. That’s really good ideas and this
    would be the best preference for maximizing those who have limited space in
    their garden. I found these tutorials very resourceful and creative.

  3. One more to come. Im cataloging the whole season in video. Something to do.

    A good video Gary. The purists may frown upon what you are doing , but I
    say you do what you what! The golden rules are simple , make sure the
    container is the right size for what you are growing in, water it regular
    especially in dry weather and to feed it regular, especially if using
    hungry crops such as tomatoes and peppers. . I have seen people grow fruit
    trees successfully in 45 litre pots.

  5. Nope. The key is opening a good amount in the bottom. And yes part of the
    design is to put the best stuff you want in the pot and save money by
    concentrating it in the growing area.

    When you do your in-ground container planters, do you cut out the entire
    bottom of the container?

  7. I grow in containers 3 types of bell peppers 3 types of jalapenos daisy
    flowers calla lilies licorice silver mist, 2 types of sage. in my garden I
    have 3 other types of bell peppers 2 other types of jalapenos pole beans
    bush beans onions and cherokee purple tomatoes garlic sugar baby melons and
    giant pumpkins as well as Russian mammoth sunflowers I have so much growing
    but the farmers market is always fun in my area bartering is great.

  8. Good video! You always give me ideas for my garden. Thank you!

    Do you think bottomless fiber pots would work? I order those for other
    purposes and could simply till them in or add them to the compost pile post

    Very nice! Are the sunken containers bottomless?

  11. Hy, great channel abd great informative videos.I discovered it some time
    ago and I saw many of your vids.I have some Bhut Jolokia peppers in pots in
    my balcony and some tomatoes and they are doing fine for now but I want to
    ask you about a bell pepper.I bought a seed package with a variety called
    “Californian wonder” and on the back it says that it is suitable for
    growing in pots.What do you think.Will be ok to grow it in a pot?

  12. Thanks. I hope it helps.

  13. just to add I grow 3 types of sage ever where in garden and yard I buy a
    few pounds of crimson clover ever year and sprinkle seed every where it is
    used by farmers for cover crops but grows great any where and helps other
    plants so much plus its helps keep the weeds down cover crops are good
    about that.

  14. At least half is cut out. I do different things and I cut a few slits up
    the sides.

  15. i am trying bush beans too gary

  16. How many pole beans to a 5 gallon container?

  17. Very nice tutorials.It was really helpful. Thanks for sharing.

  18. Hmm. I thought I responded to this… Might have lost it on sending. Yes
    you can grow them in pots definitely. Smaller fruited peppers like cayennes
    can go in smaller pots like 2.5 – 3 gallons. They are a little more
    forgiving on watering. The bells have thicker and heavier fruit and I think
    they are best placed in a 5 gallon container if totally above the ground.
    If you mess up water the fruit gets damaged on bells more often then not.

  19. At least 1/2 bottomless.

    I’m interested in trying the sunken pot method for pepper plants next year,
    because I put some extra pepper plants in containers this year and they are
    looking much better than those in my garden. Even though you cut out the
    container bottoms, don’t the roots become pot bound? Also, could I do this
    with grower mix instead of soil? I believe my soil has too much nitro
    because of excessive leaf growth. I can control what’s in the grower mix.

  21. I find life between pure and radical. Much more balanced there. If our
    politicians could just learn from us gardeners and find compromise. Well at
    least here in the US.

  22. Excellent. That is my hope. Good luck.
