Here is a link to a nice thread on an assortment of raised beds from The Garden Helper's archive.


Various Types of Raised Beds

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

My friends mom was in a wheelchair. Before her accident she was a h8uge home gardener, veggies and the such. I never understood why they didnt build her 'window box' type planters that could hang on the inside of her deck rails so she could grow a few things again.

You'd be amazed what you can grow in even shallow ordinary windowboxes set up on a porch rail! Maxi did all kinds of flowers. He did leaf lettuce, radishes, scallions, etc. Any crop that didn't need a big depth to grow.

I did leaf lettuce in a windowbox at my last house. Worked great.

Maxi just used the plastic 5 or 6 inch deep kind and they were fine. Someone who has those really deep boxes could probably even do beets and carrots.

Thats what I used. Not really a window box like a wooden built in one. But the same shape in plastic. I have it on my mailbox post now with flowers.
