We have finally completed all 6 of our wicking beds. It's been a fun project over the entire Spring season, and thank God we finished just in time to plant out all of our seedlings before they got too big.
I have created a blog with a page about wicking beds. I have added heaps of photos with step-by-step instructions, so hopefully it will be helpful to anyone who wishes to give it a go.
The address is:
Feel free to leave your comments.
I'll be keeping the blog updated as the growing season progresses, along with plenty of photos of course.
Special thanks to Foo, Lonnie, and everyone else who has contributed to this great community.

You can do the same using foam boxes from the veggie shop, plastic bins,pretty much adapt to any container.

I saw an article where the guy grows strawberries in PVC pipe. Gets about 40 plants in an area that is 1 foot deep, 4 foot wide and 6 foot high.
You don't need a lot of area to get a lot of usable area. You can grow things above one another too. Just don't try to grow things like corn or tomatoes on the bottom tier of a multi tiered garden.

Down the back of the clothes line is yet another great spot to grow food.
(massive thanks to Josh Byrne for opening his garden up on the weekend, thanks also to the great work of Kath Balfie from Open Gardens in getting things come together. )
