Ooops ..enabling more water in the reservoir?
J
20:12
Would you have any extra advice for using wicking beds on a rooftop garden?
janelle
22:55
That looks good
Roberta
23:26
How important is it that they are level?
Elise
23:48
Where the overflow pipe is positioned doesn't it go through the liner?
Robyn
24:15
i missed how you connected the overflow pipe, can you show that pls
Sharon on Wathaurong country
26:08
should you cover the pipe to stop mossies?
Sharon Willcox
28:19
IBC containers are solid and don't burst
J
32:13
What would the life of an IBC container be if constantly in the sun?
Sharon Willcox
32:16
With IBCs, it's good to put plastic edging as the edges are very sharp!
angela
32:29
where do you get the containers?
Jan and Jeff
34:53
if you look on gumtree there are companies advertising IBCs all the time. ask for food grade, UV resistant. They can be more expensive - I think about $150 at the moment.
Sharon Willcox
35:01
Agree, fabulous for growing food
Robyn
35:10
how often do you do a changeover of soil?
angela
35:12
thax
angela
35:35
what about crop rotation?
J
36:53
Would worms survive in a wicking bed (if fed) to help maintain soil quality?
Sharon on Wathaurong country
39:17
haha.....yeah mine has worms in it, I wondered too, but yes, homemade compost where they may be from. And I add worm castings.

Would you use trace elements in liquid or solid please Craig?
Sharon Willcox
42:35
Depending on size of beds, would it be good to use more than 1 wicking pipe for very large beds?
Deb
42:51
Do you water from above until the seedlings get established?
Jan and Jeff
43:59
I am building a new wicking bed and am experimenting with the waterups wicking modules instead of scoria - they are made from recycled plastic in Australia and avoids the heavy lifting of stone or sand (and the mining) and means most of the reservoir is water so efficient use of the space.
Deb
45:45
Do you tend to plant out the entire wicking bed at the one time or do you add things as space allows?
Amy Sweet
49:07
Is there a particular type of mulch you’d recommend using?
Deb
49:28
How do you go with staking crops like tomatoes?
Karen Wallace
50:46
Im disabled from a car accident and the attraction for me is not having to bend over. I automatically think “Get 3 big ones!”, but are the slimmer ones more ‘ergonomically friendly’ when reach is an issue?
Karen Wallace
51:38
Terrific Thanks
angela
