Yesterday and today read the whole topic. And I've seen a lot of creative ideas.
I made these 3 meter trough in September 2015. While creating, I took lots of pictures. A full description in pdf which you can see or downloaded here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8wSWiwm_WABRDdqd0Zjc2xGbWc/view?usp=sharing

Even a small overvieuw video https://www.youtube.com/v/-fRLeT6coDE

Anyone can make this trough does not require any special skill.
The third picture is the winter (rain) protection.
Photos are just after planting.

Jan Tholhuisjen  is really  good at sharing his  experiences with making things for the garden to keep his plants happy - now he has  turned his attention to  something else helpful for all - Jan   has made a great compilation of Ian Young's trough making articles - "With permission from Ian I have 5 blogs about the fish box troughs collected and put into an e-book. It is very interesting info, to see how to make this type of troughs and see the planted results. You can download the entire report in PDF.
Click on the page, on the bottom right for full screen."

Click here to see  the  e-book : https://issuu.com/jantholhuijsen/docs/the_fish_box_troughs

 Well done, Jan!  Exactly what is needed for  a wider audience to see all Ian's  trough advice in one place.

Today a rainy day, but after the sunny spring days is a bit of rain for the grass well.
The series lightweight troughs I ended yesterday.
It became eight troughs and a trough table, accounting for 9.40 meters.
Usually, prompting the composition of the substrate in the troughs
It is 40% crusher sand / coarse river sand, 40% Japanese split (2-6 mm)
20% special blend of 50% loam and 50% white peat
On April 22, it is already selling day by the NRV, so sellers here I come !!!
How do you make these troughs, here you can read and download everything.

The table turned out really well, Jan!  I'm breathless at the amount of work you have done recently and the great results you have had.  I think the plants and seeds sown in these troughs will have a happy life.

An alternative use for an Alpine Trough! Our Jack Russell, aptly named 'Bandit' by some.

Phlox pulvinata bloomed some time ago in this trough. It's my best one because of the lovely blue tones.  Since I started taking photos with the IPad that was a Birthday gift, I've been unable to figure out how to get the pictures on the Forum because they are huge. Hopefully, this will work.

Something a little different; some auricula in a wooden planter box which forms one side of our little garden gazebo. I hope they like their new home.

Trough with Papaver microcarpum, Daphne arbuscula just starting to rebloom, Veronica thymoides pseudocineria, Silene acaulis, and sharp eyes will spot a seedling of the pea family.
