WOW that's so cool....I wonder how well that would stay together out here? I live in the dry prairies of canada but it's my first time having a yard....maybe burlap on the inside would help the bottom stay together?

I checked out the site but saw it was mostly inspiration and not DIY! Cheesy

very cool, please update as it goes along!

I would think that if you kept it sprayed down with a water bottle it would be fine. I live in the south so we have a lot of humidity but the sun and heat drys everything out! I have just been spraying it down everyday.

I may pack some chives and a few other herbs into this idea! How Cool!!

Thanks for the web link and for sharing!

Seeing yours sprout is making me want to try this even more! Whats did you plant? And I take it from the previous comment that you have been spraying them with water from a spray bottle, correct? Im so curious to try this but it looks hard!

I planted cilantro, basil, and oregano. I have been spraying them down with a spray bottle every day and every 2 or 3 days I poor some water on them depending on how dry they look. Give it a try, it isn't hard at all and if you mess up all you have lost is some dirt, moss and $1 worth of seeds! Smiley

Wow! I saw these a few weeks ago and intended to try it as well. I'm glad someone else did too! I'm excited to read your progress!

Sadly I moved from my cute little duplex to a apartment. So my string garden had to go. They were going strong until I had to give them away. I hope they still are.
