PostHeaderIcon Planting Garlic In Containers

Garlic is one of Mother Nature’s best gifts to us. Not only is garlic full of medicinal benefits, it is also affordable and easy to grow, even in containers. For generations, garlic has been considered the ‘miracle drug’ because of its ability to cure several ailments. Some of these include snakebites, ulcers, headaches, pimples, measles and the more serious conditions like cancer and heart diseases. Garlic has also been used for prevention of infections (think common cold and cough) due to its anti-bacterial properties.

With so many health benefits, it is no wonder garlic is also one of the most planted plants in container vegetable gardening. In planting garlic, it is recommended to use containers that are 10 inches deep. Besides the container depth, what other factors will contribute towards the success of your gardening efforts? Watch the video below to discover more tips in planting garlic in containers.

PostHeaderIcon My Organic Outdoor Garden October Harvest 2009 / Potatoes / Hydroponic Peppers

This is my last video of my Organic Outdoor garden. I show harvesting the remaining cucumbers and tomatoes. I harvested my potatoes, garlic and onions. I collected seeds from everything for my 2010 garden. I’d suggest getting an early start in 2010 and buy seeds early. It may be difficult to find seeds next year with the way the economy is headed….I’m sure there will be loads of new gardeners. Last in the video I moved my hydroponic bell peppers indoors under my grow lights. I have them under two 300 watt 2700k bulbs and two 200 watt 6700k bulbs. They are huge and now have peppers that are growing very fast. Success! More to come this winter with hydroponic videos. Please subscribe and thanks for watching!
