Ok, today was all cold and wet so it is bad timing really that I'm doing a post on gardening now but what can you do...maybe you find this inspiring and keep it in mind for the coming gardening season.
I'm talking about the English habit of growing vegetables out of so-called grow bags. It basically means buying a bag of compost, slicing holes in them and putting seeds in them directly. So easy, so efficient - just never seen it anywhere in Germany before.
We have tried it with potatoes (not directly in the bought bag but in plastic bags nevertheless) and it worked amazingly well, just doesn't look very nice.
Anyway, a great way to do some easy and mess-free gardening that should work on smaller balconies as well.
Tell me, have you ever tried it? Have you ever seen this outside the UK?
