metal drum plants upcycle bkgrndStep by step instructions showing how to make your own upcycled vertical garden from old
255ltr drum.

This is not as very easy project as it requires the use of power tools as well as physical
effort to panel beat the drum into the required shape. Though you can purchase plastic
versions of this concept but we prefer to try use waste products to make our vertical garden.
What is unique about this system of vertical garden is the pipe in the centre of the drum;
this is where you put your bokashi compost in when you have done making the tea. The compost
will now break down and feed the plants in the drum.

Notes of experience:

* When making the vertical pipe try use a large coffee tin rather than a jam can and make sure
you make big holes in the tin to allow worms to enter and exit the tins, this helps with the
distribution of minerals and nutrients thought the drum.
** Once you have cut the slots in the bottom of the drum put in a layer of stone of clinker
(broken rubble) to prevent the holes from clogging the drainage of the drum.
