This is such a great idea. Living in the inner city, these are pretty easy to find and certainly factories often want to get rid of them. So get off your butt and get gardening.

VERY IMPORTANT that you use pallets that have been HEAT treated and not CHEMICALLY treated. look for the HT not the CT mark on the pallets. Also, it’s a good idea to pack in the soil and let it settle for a week or two and water it some, before turning it vertical (so that everything doesn’t just fall out). ENJOY!!
and hey Phil (above comment) click the “good idea” link and you get all the how to info…

This would be easily improved by turning it upside down and adding a bottom to each space with offcuts from another crate. Real easy then to fold a lining and pop into place. Black coreflute, or tarpaper would be ideal, with some drainage holes. If you do it like this the soil can’t travel from top to bottom.
