This setup utilized 6 containers and 20 bags of potting soil place in front of a large south facing window

For drainage use a 1/4 inch drill in these locations

This rubbermaid container works ideal in these locations so the water does not pool at the bottom

The lid then works as a perfect drain pan

Fits perfectly underneath the planter

Each container held 3 1/3 bags of 1.5 cu ft of potting soil

The handles have holes so you want to be just below the handles

Planters now ready to be planted with seeds

Each planter now has approximately 11 to 12 inches depth of soil
Plant seeds in 3 rows 5 inches apart (20 inch width divided by 4 sections equals 5 inches)
