How to make your own self watering planters



I made some self watering planters also know as SIP or Sub Irrigated Planters from 5 gallon buckets with a 1 gallon milk jug, 8" of PVC  and some strips of cloth. I planted strawberries, pineberries and watermelon in them so far. I also did one in a large storage bin. I made mine and then went online to see how other people might do theirs to find out no one did theirs the same why I did mine. Interesting. Anyhow I still really like my way better...maybe slightly biased. But when we leave for vacation in May I will know how well they really work and will let you know the results! In the meantime here is a how to video I did on making one yourself!
