Allow me to introduce Fabric Grow Bags!
The problem with the traditional “container gardening” methods is it involves lots of…well…containers. While there are so many gorgeous container options, the issue arises when the gardening season is done…and now you’ve got to find a place to store all those lovely pots and planters.
Not with fabric grow bags!
With grow bags, you simply wash them, let them dry, and store them *folded flat* for easy and space saving storage. All the praise hands and happy dances all around!
This is my first year using fabric grow bags, and to say I’m excited to expand my growing opportunities is an understatement. 🙂
Grow bags can be placed anywhere. On the edge of a sidewalk, in the lawn, on a driveway, steps, balconies, porches, beside doors, anywhere there’s open space with good sunlight is a perfect space for a fabric grow bag to be plunked right down.
The benefits of fabric grow bags are many
- Stronger, healthier plants and starts
- Less growing media needed
- Improved overall root structure (more root tips)
- Decreased risk of transplant shock
- Better use of water and nutrients
- Promotes beneficial biology
- Quicker Growing times
- Elimination of root wrapping (circling) in pots
- Fewer transplants required
Because the fabric is breathable, the roots self prune and become stronger and healthier. This video here is a wonderful resource and explains the benefits of grow bags.
