    I planted some spring onions along with some seed from the chives of last year. Inbetween I put some radish seeds and they are all coming up! hooray!. I see a tomato or two found their way in there also! The chives are the finer looking ones inbetween the onions!

    This is going to be a terrific garden, Dawn. These planters were worth every penny, weren't they. They are marvellous. :cool:

    All your plants are looking so good & healthy. The spring onions are looking very perky, almost ready to eat now. :lol2: I am very partial to chives, too. There is nothing like salad stuff from your own garden, is there?? :cool3:

    Love seeing these sorts of plants when they are young & growing so well. :bravo:

    Good to hear, Dawn. :good: I find the commercially grown ones to be too hot & eye watering, I'm afraid. Don't have a taste for any of the "hot" foodstuffs such as chilli, curry, pepper etc. Bland is what I am. ;) :whistle: :lol2:

    What is the idea for lining the containers with what looks like heavy black plastic? Are all container gardens planted using plastic to line the containers?

    Those are large planter boxes constructed from wood, Glad & the black heavy duty plastic liner would be there to protect the wood & help prevent rot. It also helps to stop the soil from drying out too quickly. There would be drainage holes at the bottom to let excess water drain away.

    This type of liner would be a good idea for any lining any container made from wood, such as old barrels.

    Hi Glad :), yes what Joy says is right that is exactly why they line these boxes with plastic. The wood these are made from is already treated for outdoors, hence no varnish protection on the outside. But the plastic will save the middle from rot as with constant use the soil will always be wet.

    Whoever built these planters has done a wonderful job, Dawn. Can see why they were a little pricey & they look to be worth it with all the work that has gone into their making. :good:

    good news - its so exciting to see the fruits of your hard work, I too feel the same. I grew some capsicums in my pot and I have got 6 capsicums on 2 plants, 3 on each.

    I have the tamato plants just growing so lets see how it goes.

    Keep posting...:-)

    Apparently, tomatoes do very well in pots, Shirley, & we wish you every success with yours.

    They are aren't they K? We don't have much room so I don't grow veggies in pots but there are many types of vegetables which do very well in pots.
