This year I decided to try something new and ordered 2 earth boxes. The reviews I've been reading seems to rate them pretty high. Has anyone ever used them. I'm getting spring fever really bad and would like to get planting.:)
Hello and welcome!
I have two earth boxes and have had mixed results. I live in an area that cooks in the summer so have found them most useful in a semi-shaded area. Everything I've planted in them does pretty well but little frogs love to live in the watering tubes.
I have seen thees and beed reading up on them...would love to hear more about how they do...thanks for posting this thread
Blueaussi. Thats a great link, very detailed and easy to follow instructions. I may give this one a try also. Thanks

Well the 2 earth boxes arrived by UPS. So I guess I'll try growing some Sugar Baby Watermelons. Growing Watermelons at the end of Feb. in zone 4 should be interesting. But after re potting many indoor plants it should be fun.
After having and viewing this item, I like Blueaussi posting in building one, the best.
Keep us posted on the results though and it would be great if you can post some photos as you go along.
