These were on sale for $.50 at Menard’s so I bought ten. I planted them in Walmart recycled shopping bags which cost another $.50 ea. I made my own potting mix using Larry Hall’s recipe.

The peat moss was $7.45/ 2.2 cu’ bag. Last fall it was $4.45/bag. I’ll be waiting until fall to buy more.
Hopefully, if this wicking idea works, I’ll make a long tray to hold about ten bags and use a float valve to water the tray automatically. Larry Hall is planning on using a kiddie pool with a valve to keep the water level up.
