Step 1: Get All the Tools / Materials
You will also need some string, scissors, and your trusty Swiss Army knife. (Since you are on the instructables website I think it is save to assume you have one)
Step 2: Prepare the Boxes
Step 3: Fill the Box With Earth
Now fill the rest of the box with earth.
Step 4: Plant Your Stuff
Put the box with earth in the other box (which we haven't touched until now).
Don't forget to water everything and fill the lower box with water. But don't overdo it! The upper box should not touch the water. (Using the Samla boxes I can put approx. 1 liter of water into the lower box.)
Step 5: Wait...
Please note that the basil was a lot bigger the day before I took this picture. But I had used a lot of in my pasta sauce. :-)
Some tips from experience:
- Drill some holes in the lower box just underneath the point where the top box ends. This way you don't have to worry about overfilling the lower box (accidentally of if there are heavy showers)
- The one liter reservoir lasts for about 2 days of intense sunshine. (but that's here in Switzerland This may vary in other climates)
