Q.Can We Use Old Bed Sheets As Our Geotextile For Wicking Gardening Beds?
We are using old fruit bins to make a wicking veggie garden. All our research points to using shade cloth or similar as the Geotextile. Hoping to get away with old bed sheets instead.

Probably not, unless they are made of polypropylene, or some other non-absorbent plastic.
Likely, the sheets are made of something that will degrade under such conditions.
Shade cloth, or weed barrier is best.
