    Whether you are frustrated by your gardening dreams or you are a successful gardener looking to add to your productivity, is the place for you.

    SIP maybe the answer you are looking for

    The key focus of this site is to help promote urban agriculture using Sub-Irrigated Planters (SIPs). Currently, the main thrust in on growing vegetables and food production, but I plan to expand to flowering plants, decorative plants and wall gardens.

    Recently, my garden (in reality a 15’ x 40’ deck), was open to a garden tour, and visitors were amazed at what can be grown in a container using SIP technology. Unlike regular planters that are watered from the top, or drip-fed, the sub-irrigated planters using the latest techniques to produce healthier plants and more vegetables while using less water and time.
