thoughts on grow bags?
Personally, I'd be fine growing in home-made SWCs out of Rubbermaid tubs or free buckets from the bakery at the supermarket. But my kids (teenagers) and hubby have vetoed that idea. The area I can use for container gardening is in front yard, and they think those would look a little trashy. I've got some decent ideas for things I could build to dress them up, but not enough time.
I started wondering about grow bags. I just ordered some for growing potatoes in after reading the recent article in.. Organic Gardening magazine. They haven't yet arrived. Why the family thinks grow bags will look less trashy than home-made SWCs is beyond me, but they're OK with them.
I've got some landscaping fabric left around from back when I thought that was a good thing, and wondered about making my own. Those might not meet my family's standards, though.
I'm wondering if anyone has compared the brands or types? I wish I could hear about how they work, how long they last, etc. I'm wondering about the Oregon Breather bags from House of Green, the Wooly Pocket ones, and others. Also if anyone has tips on finding a decent price - wish my family wasn't so against homemade pots!
