The limits of bathtub gardening?

Posted on October 22, 2018 at 15:31 7 Comments

Hey team!

As many of you may already know, I'm a big fan of planting in old bathtubs. Due to constraints at our home (size, storm drains, doggo, etc) everything I do needs to be raised. I was thinking of planting a few small trees in my tubs instead of doing large pots - are there any obvious downsides to this plan?

I'm not planning on moving them around (at least, not for quite a long time) but I'm sure I'm probably missing some problems!

As a bonus, have a new tub I…

I thought I would share a couple of photos from my fledgling garden - I'm a complete novice but have had some small successes. Growing up all of the emphasis was on learning computers and similar skills rather than the hands on side, so I really am starting from level 0 (I had no idea most plants are meant to, you know, die).

I look forward to learning as much as possible and hopefully getting along to some visits!

The photos are my first potential pumpkin baby, some flowers, a…

Hi Sid, the BLF regulars have posted good advice as usual, however they have humbly forgotten about themselves :)

For Brisbane gardening, I would try brisbanelocalfood, just alone for the diversity of direction you gain from this 10 year + compilation of info.

I would not use ning's search engine when looking for something specific. I have found google to be a better search engine for the site... examples below...

In the google search type :

site:brisbanelocalfood.ning.com garden preparation

site:brisbanelocalfood.ning.com pepino

Even throw a few regular posters' names in, some have been posting blogs, comments, pictures and videos for years. 

site:brisbanelocalfood.ning.com Dianne

In google, change the 'All' option and to 'Images' and get BLF picture results as in the example below.

Sometimes a little more work, however the results can be diversely rich.

Good Morning Sid, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF).

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One of these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2018 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR. We have a Garden Visit on this Saturday if you would like to come along.I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas. 

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF…..
