Clever Gardening Technique

Gardening in the Bag
You can grow vegetables in the bag that your quality potting mix comes in. Punch a few holes in one side of the bag for drainage. Then lay the bag flat with the other side facing up. Make a small "X" slit in the bag and set a transplant through the opening. Then water and fertilize as you would any other container and enjoy the results!
