Small Space Growing Strategy- The Rain Chain


(Cop on Bicycle)

In this video Jim Martin shows us how you can make a “rain chain”. What a rain chain is, is a planter method where you hang plants with the largest on top down to the smallest on bottom and allow each to water the plant below it by the chain that supports them. This is an excellent way to save space, maximize the use of water and to share nutrients. While Jim uses non edible species in this video there is no reason that small edibles could not be grown this way.
