If on a country or garden site has an old wooden barrel large sizes, then it is possible to make an unusual bed — vertical. Of course, this is easy to fabricate and specifically in the form of high box, but the barrel is preferable. First, it is already prepared, and secondly, looks much decorative. The use of drums in these objectives due not only to the desire to save valuable space, if cottage or garden plot is small.
About decoration already mentioned: it’s like a giant vase, all covered by greens once planted it the plants full development by mid-summer, the barrel looks very impressive and no doubt adorns the site. But not only that.
There are plants for which the vertical bed — the best agronomic form. So, for example, on a normal garden strawberries need to raise to large, heavy berries are not lying on the ground and rot. And in the barrel they will be free to droop, and as provided by the sun. The same can be said about cucumbers, some varieties of zucchini, eggplant, even peas.
Important fact: if necessary, such a bed can be moved together with plants without causing them any harm, which is impossible with traditional planting. And another great advantage: planted in the barrel the plants are inaccessible to weeds.
How to turn a barrel into a bed? If you just fill it with land, the useful area for plants will be restricted, as in ordinary vases, only the upper part, and the remaining amount of land will remain unused.
