I've generally been planting my veggies in pots and in one small raised bed over the last year. But I'm now thinking of moving away from individual pots and into more raised beds as well as a large wooden trough/planter box.
The latter is for my tomatoes and I plan to place them on my patio since it's a sweet sun-loving spot. I plan to have 6 plants in it along with some helpful companions (eg. basil).
Now, would it be better for me to buy these troughs/boxes ready-made or to make them? If it was better to buy them, where can I get them from? Trade Me seems to have a couple but most of them aren't in my preferred sizes...
And if I did build these myself, where would I be able to find some instructions and blueprints? Or better still, does anyone know someone who is great with woodworking and would be keen to build some for a price?
Cheers plenty!!! :)
...spring is almost here...yay!!!
