How to plant garden boxes on a hilltop?

Ahoj všetci,

For the last 6 years I have been planting gardens in boxes or pots on my back garden on a steep hilltop. The plan has been to create an informal garden, similar to what you would find at high end restaurants.

The plan for this year is to add another garden box.

What are the best ways to approach planting and maintaining this type of garden?

I currently use gravel for the base (as we have a rocky garden). The plan is to mix a little compost and soil for a better base.

I am using the patio as my planting area and will look to expand to one or more boxes at a later date. I have the following question:

How to plant and grow garden boxes on a hilltop?

I can't use clay soil as the top 1/3 will be too loose and will lead to problems over the years. I have a rocky garden for the rest. I need a good mix of soil that can hold it's own and provide nutrients.

I'm not exactly sure where you live, but I hope you can give some tips for the soil. If it's rocky, you don't want to put it in contact with it, otherwise you'll end up with small gravel. It's best to put it in a large bag, and mix the gravel with a spade and add water (so you have a moist soil). Plant your plants and just let the soil breathe on its own. I don't know if your soil would be like mine, but you don't have to do anything to it, because the plants would absorb nutrients from the gravel, just plant a normal seedling (not too deep). But, if it's too rocky for that, use a big container (something like a wheelbarrow). And, no, it doesn't matter if the container is full of soil, as long as you mix the soil with your gravel.

Another suggestion is to get some compost from a local garden, plant your garden box, let it dry, and plant it in the garden. This should make your soil more fertile (it shouldn't be in contact with any other soil).

Hope you can solve this issue. I'll check back often to see if you answered.

I live in a city, so soil is pretty much a mixture of cement and dirt. Also, there's not really anything that's rocky on a city hilltop. I don't think there are any real answers for a hillside garden in a city. As for the soil for one of my plants, it has no nutrients, so I guess it's kind of sterile, but it's the best I could find.

The one thing I should have mentioned is that I live in a very cold city. We get a ton of snow, which means that my garden boxes will not work. I should also mention that I'm on a city street and that a street is pretty flat, if I'm not mistaken.

If you have a yard, you might be able to keep the plant outside of the raised bed. That's what I was planning on doing with one of my raised beds until I saw your post. If not, you could always build a box for your plant to stay in.

I wouldn't put it out there. You need a little bit of a buffer to the street to keep the roots and all of that moisture where it needs to be. I also wouldn't let it soak in for too long. Just keep it watered well in the winter and maybe use some kind of mulch around the roots.

I've tried mulching it and have had some success with that, but it's probably easier just to keep the soil moist. I don't think I've had any issues with my little guy being frosted.

I don't think I've ever done a raised bed yet, but my dad grew tomatoes in pots in the winter. The soil is just fine, but he still has an issue with the cold soil not letting the roots have enough oxygen. I don't think you have the same issue, since you're already on a raised bed, but just to be safe I would mulch up the outside edges a little to let a little more oxygen get to the roots. I think you'll still have enough to worry about as long as you keep the soil moist.

The one thing I should have mentioned is that I live in a very cold city. We get a ton of snow, which means the tomatoes always freeze. As long as you can keep the soil fairly moist, that shouldn't be a problem.Kým dostanete zimné paradajky, rastliny budú pravdepodobne mŕtve, ale aspoň budú mať na to dobrú výhovorku :)

Ach, tiež som vyrástol v chladnom ráme, ktorý som si sám postavil. Mám však rovnaký problém, pretože žijem vo veternom meste, kde je VEĽMI veterno. Vietor odvinie črepník priamo zo studeného rámu a pošle korene k zemi, čo pre vás nikdy nebude problém. Takže to bude len ďalšia záležitosť udržiavať pôdu dostatočne vlhkú, aby sa korene stále dostali tam, kde majú byť.

Som rád, že to nie je veľký problém. Bude zaujímavé sledovať, ako to pôjde. Možno tento rok vyskúšam skleník, len aby som videl, ako to pôjde. Vždy som po ňom túžila, ale bolo to drahé a potom by som ho musela nastavovať odznova.

Som nový v pestovaní paradajok. Minulý rok som pestoval len uhorky. Na tento rok som kúpil sadenice z miestnej škôlky. Povedali, že prvé paradajky boli asi 2 mesiace od kvitnutia.

Sadenice, ktoré som mal minulý rok, mali jednu rastlinu, ktorá prinášala ovocie. Bola to malá sladká a lahodná cherry paradajka.

Moje sadenice rastú ako burina. Každý z nich je naložený paradajkami. Neviem aky je rozdiel so semenami.

Toto je prvý rok, čo pestujem paradajky. Mám štyri vyvýšené postele. Každé lôžko má dva rady rastlín paradajok.

Môžete mi povedať, ako často ich polievať? Mám polievať denne? Dvakrát denne? Ako dlho by malo namočenie vydržať?
