Air pruning Root Pouch Wicking Gardens. Sowing carrot seeds, planting slips & some spuds.

Have set up a few different air pruning Root Pouch gardens over the past couple of weeks & thought I’d bring you all along for a bit of a look. They have been turned into wicking gardens using some basic reservoirs to keep the soil & plants well hydrated.
Have sown out some carrot seed in 2, planted out some sweet potato slips using a slightly different method in a large pouch & am trying spuds in a few as well.
