Adding 1 cup of lime, and 1 cup of fertilizer to a 5 gal bucket SWC worked really well. Why? It seems like a lot of lime and fertilizer. Should I be adding more lime and/or fertilizer to my regular 511 containers? Last year the tomatoes that I

My first row of SWC buckets is set on my Larry Hall designed Self Watering Rain Gutter Grow System...now comes the doubt...the worrying...the panic! Ok, no panic. For fertilization in the mix I used what I had on hand...Espoma 5-3-3 organic.

The Earthbox is considerably less than the 5 gallons recommended to grow tomatoes. So my question is, if I make my own SWC and use the EB dimensions, will it work just as well? Follow-Up Postings: Return to the Container Gardening
