Has anyone heard of the piggy back pots? If so and you have use one or made one could you give me some tips on those pots.
Lila and Barbara your containers of flowers are beautiful I like the real airy ferny plant in metal pot holder I don't know what name it is but would like to get some from somewhere ,I know I'm not real clear but if you know which one it is please let me know.
Carol, I grew potatoes in hay bales many years ago and it worked quite well. The hay or straw must be about a year old and well tied up as it shrinks as it ages. I just made a hole and inserted the potato then moved the hay around to cover the potato. I have grown strawberries the same way. I never add soil and it worked well for me.
We actually did a test using both straw and hay bales this past season with various plants. Bottom line for us was to remove a section of the bale (hay or straw,) insert a quart or so of decent potting soil and the results were pretty good with tomatoes and peppers. Not doing it this time around in favor of more conventional in the ground and container growing.
Does any one have experience with straw bale gardening? I saw it on line a year ago..........but didn't want to annoy the neighbors while I figured it out.
Mixture of vines.
New start of Swedish Ivy.
Thank you for the advice about plastic in the coco liners, I "sort of" have that as I use diapers to hold moisture which have a plastic outer layer which sits against the coco liners.
