This garden barrel offers 22 square feet of growing space in a 4 square footprint. On wheels, it can be moved to catch the best angle of the sun. Inside, a clay reservoir called an olla holds water which seeps slowly out allowing even watering. Fits on most backyard patios or decks.
Barrel with pockets.
A recycled, food grade barrel has 40 pockets for growing plus the surface on top.
Clay olla holds water.
A clay olla is buried inside the barrel. This allows even watering as the water seeps out slowly.

Plant whatever you like – flowers, herbs, veggies.
Chose one mono crop
These strawberries will grow runners and eventually the entire barrel will be covered. Ever-bearing strawberries last until frost.
Different herbs and vegetables....
Plant just about anything… squash, cucumbers trail on the ground. Herbs work well in the pockets, so do flowers.
