The advantages of growing the pallet collar are many. You can start earlier in spring as the soil quickly becomes hot. Moreover, you will facilitate the clearing, fertilising and watering.
1. Plan and think
Choose a sunny, level place in the garden.Make a simple sketch in which you draw out the collars should stand. Mark where the aisles should be and if you want something more, such as compost, bench to sit on the fence or around.
2. Once the model
Finished pallet collars are available in both wood and iron. You can also choose to build one yourself – think so, then you will not use treated lumber for vegetable gardens.
3. Place the collars
If you already have a piece of cake where you cultivated in open field, you can put the collar directly on the soil and fill with fresh soil.Should you have your pallet collars on the grass, you can saturate the box with a thick layer of newspapers. It smothers the grass and weeds and prevents them from growing into the box. Set the boxes on a stone, it is smart to add ground cloth in the bottom and fold up the edges a bit on the inside. Then hold the soil in place, but still has good drainage.
4. Make room for collars
Be sure to have proper paths between the collars so that you can access to care for plantations. Grow your collar directly on the soil is often enough a pallet collar height.
5. Make the collar into a hotbed
Earth must maintain a minimum temperature of 5 degrees before you can start as the first vegetables.
