I have done the same thing, but used long hair bun pins.  They are stronger and last a lot longer.

Yes.  Look under accessories.  $2 each plus shipping.  I have a bunch of them, if you were closer, I'd give them to you.

Since it's NEW, I would contact customer support and tell them about the issue.  If it was older, I would recommend somethimg else.


Questions and Answers / Trellis for butternut squash
« on: June 20, 2018, 10:40:52 am »

Does anybody trellis butternut, spaghetti squash, and melons?  I'm trying to figure out what to use to get them off of the ground or should I let them run on the black ground cover?

I have about 2 feet between the boxes and a wooden fence.  I'm thinking a cattle panel leaning against fenve would work, but is it better to trellis?

Since it's almost the end of the season, I'd like to get it done before next spring.

Thanks Doc.

Questions and Answers / Tiny bugs in starting pots
« on: June 19, 2018, 01:16:14 pm »
I am starting plants for the fall and have these really small bugs in the soil.  I always clean and sanitize the the pots and the self watering trays, but I always seem to have these bugs.  In the past I haven't worried about them, but it really bothers me, especially when seeds don't sprout.

Any help is appreciated.

I think beau is right.  You might be able to raise the tube a little while you're trying to break up the clog.  In the meantime you can water at the base of the plants until you break up the clog.

Per gardendoc
Per gallon:
1 tbs permetheran 10%
1/4 cup (4 tbs) spinosad
3 tbs daconil
2 tbs (1 oz) spreader sticker

I made this into a document, framed it and hung it where we keep the sprayer and the chemicals.


Questions and Answers / Re: Root and Veg EB
« on: May 20, 2018, 11:49:04 am »
When I bought the root and veg, it was to grow carrots.  That didn't work.  I find that the water doesn't wick as it does in the regular earthboxes.  Last fall I put 1 broccoli plant in the root and veg and that was plenty enough for the pot.  I had to do a lot of top watering to make sure the plant would survive.  I have decided to not use them for veggies and have put rosebushes in them.

I forgot to attach the pic.  It must be Monday.


I bought a rose bush @ three weeks ago and sprayed it as soon as I got home just in case it was carrying something.  I planted it in a root and veg box.  It has been blooming like crazy and I am keeping it well watered and fertilize once per week with rose food fertilizer.
The plant doesn't seem to be thriving.  A lot of the leaves are turning brown.  I took a pic yesterday and it seems that some of the leaves have little hairs on them.  I'm not familiar with this.  Any ideas.

I would refresh the fertilizer and start adding the snack ASAP.

Tag, I understand about not wanting to kill your babies.  That's why I usually have so many tomato plants.  Not this year.  Have 3 from the fall planting and 4 from the spring planting.

I didn't have a good bean season last year, but I usually have so many beans that I put up about 20 quarts of beans.  I have tried a few type of bush beans and found that the Serengeti beans are the best that I have grown.  Good Luck
