All about VEG Wicking Beds
Wicking beds are a revolutionary way of watering. They help you save time and water, while producing lush, healthy, and unstressed veggies regardless of the heat of the season.
Getting it right can be technical and tricky though. After years installing hundreds of wicking beds at home and professionally, we now offer our foolproof wicking bed conversion kits and instructional materials to the public.
Our wicking beds use heavy duty food-grade plastic liner which is good for your health and resilient against leaks. We also use the overflow and drainage system of our own invention which is now becoming an industry standard.
Along with free instructions and advice based on years of experience and many hundreds of wicking beds, we sell:
- DIY wicking bed conversion kits (potable-water grade liner, geotextile fabric, and plumbing assemblies) all across Australia
- wicking bed installation services in Melbourne
- natural cypress veggie bed edging, whether as DIY kitsets or fully installed by our professional team
- and we also run workshops for community groups and councils
We wish you well in your wicking bed adventures, and we hope you find something of use on this site!
