Wicking Bed Gardening For Drought or Containers

If you live in an apartment or somewhere that is drought prone, you can still grow delicious vegetables by using a wicking bed gardening method. Gardens can add a great aesthetic feature to a house. They are not only useful to grow various types of plants and flowers for aesthetic purposes but for growing crops and herbs as well. The purpose of the garden can depend how much space is available to you.

For example, herbs can be grown in small spaces as well while some of the plants can grow well in small areas as well. People who love homesteading are more involved in maintaining an organized garden. On the other hand, cooking and food enthusiasts often use gardens to grow their own produce. This is very useful if one wants to incorporate fresh ingredients in their recipes. In this video from Jesse Lemieux, you will see how to prepare a wicking bed. A wicking bed is a type of planter which has a water reservoir at its bottom.

This reservoir of water at the bottom gives water content to the roots of the plant and they can grow sufficiently. This method is adopted in regions where there is a lack of water due to drought. Saving water becomes very important in drought conditions but maintaining plant life is important as well. Wicking beds are a good alternative in such situations.
