You don’t have to garden in grow boxes to have a Mittleider garden
There seems to be this misconception that one has to have expensive grow boxes to grow a Mittleider garden. That is absolutely not true. You can grow as good of a garden in your own soil for a lot less money.
But you don’t understand, my soil is horrible
Those words are heard a lot when trying to convince someone to stop amending their soil and grow with the Mittleider method. You can grow in your soil. Because we provide all the nutrients the plant needs on a weekly basis the lack of nutrition in your soil is entirely irrelevant. With the Mittleider gardening Method the soil is used for the following:
- it provides the plant with anchorage and protection for the roots
- Holds air and water for the plant
- It stores the nutrition we apply to the soil beds
- regulates temperature
- provides drainage
