Hey everyone! I have designed and built my own version of a vertical garden barrel planter. The major differences between mine and others is that I use a hugelkultur core and a passive watering clay "Olla". I have 40 planting pockets which turns 4 square feet into 22 square feet of garden space. I also built a rotating mechanism. Does anyone have any advice for improvements? Thanks!

good looking set up Tim. It sounds like you have it dialed in nicely already, about the only thing I might want extra would be a solar powered motor to do the turning for me.

BTW, I especially like the hugel core idea combined with the Olla.
