    i used saved plastic milk jugs this past spring/summer for my squashes and cucumbers, put holes in the bottom and cut out the tops leaving the handles..worked well plus if its not doing well in one spot u can move to another and its just less plastic going to landfills.
    will take yrs for those steel buckets to rust completely up,..large plastic containers esp sterite go brittle from the sun in about 3 yrs & crack to pieces.

    Perhaps the initials (which is very beautiful) are too long and leaves no time to investigate the subject?
    We would like to have (outside) climbing perfumed flowers that grow quickly and last many months. Besides the roses, have you already planned to make a video with detailed explanations on how to make from start to end this job?

    good ways to do it, i think a drill would be better though : / and the bucket will slowly rust where you put the holes ._.

    Patti ,

    I have access to 25-35 gallon blue food grade chemical barrels.

    I drill drain hole in the bottoms and put about a 3 inch layer of sand in the bottom to pull off excess moisture yet it hold some so when the soil on top drys it pulls water from tme the sand.

    After my plants are about a foot higt in 6 inches of soil I add more seed potatoes. and soil I can get 5 layers in. Now my crops size varies, but it works great for me.
    Thank you for many good tips.

    Those buckets will rust out in those spots, as the galvinisation is only on the surface of the metal. The exposed bits in the holes will start to corrode.

    ive done the same thing before;
    instead of using metal buckets;
    i used old metal and plastic Coffee Cans;
    the big sized ones

    A drill would be much more functional here in my opinion. About half the time and smooth holes instead of jagged hole bent in.
