Lasagna Planting

Lasagne planting is my go to when I have to fill a new planter box or big pot. It saves me spending dollars on soil. I loves this technic because I'm forever changing my mind where I want things and also using what I have at home and composting at the same time.


I did this on a small scale today. Meet my basil (or soon to be) . I did try growing basil in a seed tray but it kept getting knocked around. So I came up with this. I also want it weed free and when the season of basil is finished I can dump in my garden and start again.


1. Cut paper/cardboard up and stick in the bottom


2. Add some compost


3. Add poo (I used alpaca)


4. Repeat 1 and 2


5. Add potting mix


6. Sprinkle seeds


7. I used some seed raising mix I had for on top


You tube has great pointers for a lager scale. But this was what I've done today. Just hope it works out.
