Making a mini vegetable garden with pots
"I do get some sun, but only in the morning here and in the afternoon there."
"I'd like more plants, but there's no more room in my garden box - all the patches are full."
Well, that's when I got to thinking.
A Planty Garden, but even smaller? And movable? How about a pot?
But not just any pot. You need a pot that's:
- the same size as a square patch
- made from breathable material for better root growth
- made of recycled plastic
By now, the negative nancies have changed their tune and we're all super enthusiastic. And no, not just because they sell so well 😉
Because growing in an MM-Mini has a lot of advantages. More than we could've imagined.
The MM-Mini growbag pros:
Space eaters and spreaders
The MM-Minis are perfect for potatoes: you'll produce a lot and keep your spuds separate from your other plants. When the plants start looking ugly - you just put them out of sight until you're ready to remove them.
You can read more about potatoes here.
And what about mint?
Talk about a spreader. You don't want that weed in your raised bed 😉 It grows all over. So, put it in an MM-Mini.
Growing on the go
Keeping it clean
You can brush off any remaining MM-Mix, mud, or roots in no time.
Is it really dirty or is something green growing on the sides? Just scrub it in a bucket of soapy water.
What do you think?
So, share your experience, tips, and reservations. And of course your enthusiastic stories. Because we love to hear how you make the most of your MM-Minis.
Enjoy your small-scale Planty Garden!
