So today I have just finished putting together what one night call a ‘horizonal soil system’ as discussed by Leighton from FCP, similar system to what @Spartangrown uses also for his living soil system.

I’ll use an IKEA style numbered pictures to guide you so it’s more fun for you than my overly-long sentences 😉

1.

1727C9C2 C8A9 493A B9C4 A25622AC4FBF

(cut love heart shaped hole at height of desired reservoir overflow level.... do not cut holes in bottom of pot)

2.

8B459AD8 F36A 4C5B 88F3 EB4676A21792

Washed clay pebbles at bottom

 

3.

CE206790 131D 483D BDF1 152F0662EF39
9BE0A109 0957 4D2B 8170 45C4FF98CC2C

reuse old fabric pot as soil holder

4.

E8DE1875 B535 48B5 A994 BC903ABF3F14

add watering pipe to enable bottom reservoir refilling 

5.

4F7DFA63 C136 4239 A045 A2C853CE73BC

 Next layer is sharp sand

6.

47C0F41E FFFB 4BAE 9772 3F0F4EAF6E4B
DDC8DFA9 85DC 4FEA A169 82DB0F6C578F

Add new 50L bag of organic compost 

7.

0FBD22E5 AD11 4F07 9AF8 EB53B1A53D2C

And mix in 50L of used soil from last run

8.

B9094911 EB57 4619 8349 A970F11DBD46
872A8FA6 D291 4163 B0DE B9F75AC3E1C1
4C106DB4 E8CE 4AFF A285 DF1C4F2AC811

Add these for worm and micro organism-orgasm power 😉

9.

F219E7EB E34E 48A5 A57F 5E4A0278C538

Add vermicompost and vermicomposters

10.

B7DA2B7F BA14 43D7 919D 2B833569A08A

Mix and level surface  

11.

A4D832FF EB42 4125 A493 E451E650710F

fill reservoir 

12.

F52AD2D7 7B20 43FD A778 749F19F2BE24

Add plant

in this case I will be growing cucumbers in my conservatory and training up along the the curtain rail above the lounge/ conservatory  door way to create a ‘curtain of cucumbers’. 

Have done this last few years but not in this pot style system ..

Will update as/ if things progress. 

hope this is of interest to some 

anyone else using such a system? 

Would like to use this in my grow some point to allow ease of watering / breaks away/ less f gnats from bottom watering etc 

happy growing y’all 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@3plantspete

what I’ve done is tweaked both Leighton’s and Spartans a little.. 

you can see Spartans on his own utube or my cheap homegrow channel or many similar bottom watering sets ups in general gardening channels on utube also 

This system will work with any size pot as bottom reservoir pots have been sold in gardening centres for years. Bigger pots means bigger reservoirs so can go longer between waterings.

good luck and have fun with it bro
