Why grow food in Tyres?
The explanation for this is trouble-free planting. Growing potatoes, for example, in a tyre garden. The process begins by putting a sheet of cardboard under the tyre, adding potatoes and mud covering it. Mount one more tyre as the plant grows in height and follow the same cycle until these tyres are filled with buds that sprout. It’s also easy to harvest from them. Knock off the tyres and roll out the potatoes.
The tyres can be stacked in a pile and used as small garden pots for flowers and vegetables too.
Such miniature garden beds require less watering, and sun heat is absorbed by the black tyres, which encourages plant growth. This can be very useful for growing tomatoes, and you might be the first to enjoy the fresh and juicy tomatoes in a tyre in the neighborhood.
