DIY Self Watering Container and Mini Greenhouse from 2 Storage Totes: Ultimate Edition

Welcome to Bucolic Bushwick. Here you'll find advice on rooftop vegetable gardening, as well as several plans for DIY self watering planters. Please share this page with others and help spread the vegetable gardening movement.

This planter is the most labor intensive of all my designs, but it's also the most useful. Having a greenhouse/cold frame on top of your planter opens up a lot of growing options.

To make this self watering container you need 2 totes with lids. One tote should be clear. You'll also need several fabric strips to act as water wicks and a tall water bottle to act as a fill tube.
