Sponges for Gardens
I am cheap and stubborn, so the Mel Bartholamew methods got me a little confused. I'm one of those people who have a garden that needs to correct the soil, about to sulfur for the first time at the end of this month. Never tried this, but it's costing me about 35 dollars or more to do this.
About beds, made with raised dirt built up with straw and dirt around the sides instead of wood, no vermiculite or peat moss, but what about a few sponges planted with the plant?
How insane is this? Peat moss is a dying resource, so am also a little bit of an environmentalist. I don't like the idea at all.
The vermiculite or what ever it is, is not very environmental either. Isn't that little plastic pellets? I don't want that in my garden soil. I'm thinking of burying pieces of sponges to absorb water, maybe like a sheet of shamwow, but cheaper, with each plant.
Does that sound possible? Let me why it's not possible!
Thank you beforehand!
