  2. Hey thanks for this post!

    It couldn’t have come at a better time as currently my family are getting plants ready for the arrival of spring and summer. The only way they are aware of plants growing is pots and I’m actually surprised there are grow bags out there, I had no idea, I guess it’s because I’m not an avid gardener but glad to learn something new!

    I’m going to be sharing this useful site with them, I know they’ll love it!

    • Hello Sariyah, grow bags are so amazing and makes gardening so Easy. so Happy you stopped by and also   sharing this information with your family, please let me know how  your garden project goes and remember Happy Gardening.

  3. The information you shared was very helpful. This will be my first time with planting in bags. I hope all goes well. My husband is skeptical of this gardening method. He says I have already spent too much. But at our ages we can no longer set up and tend a traditional garden.

  4. Really happy i came across your website.
    Ive been having conflicting thoughts about gardening because i live in Dubai so its super hot and also had some very bad experiences with using hydroponics. It felt very unnatural to grow everything artificially.

    My 6 year son got a Grass Grow Head with cup using his weekly pocket money and its grew crazy. So i decided to upscale his grass head by using a grow bag and 5 gallon bottle water drum and a couple of wicks/rope to keep the water slowly circulating just like his Grass Head.

    Thank You for the information which you have posted here.
