Do you ever fantasize about having your own garden? Fresh vegetables and fruits are delivered right to your door. Or a variety of flowers that smell and look amazing. But you gave up on that subject because it is difficult work that necessitates perseverance.
So, what if I told you there’s a way to never have to pull out those weeds growing in between your fruits and vegetables? You don’t really have to bend over and spend time picking them all. One less desirable option is to spend a lot of money on products that promise to prevent the growth of weeds but often fail to do so.
However, we have a fantastic solution for you: bag gardening. This is how to grow vegetable or fruit gardens from bags of soil without having to worry about weeds. The first step is to go out and buy some soil bags. The size is determined by how much you intend to plant.
The first step is to prepare.
Before planting, prepare your soil by lightly raking it through. The soil would be loose and airy this way. Then, in the back, make a few drainage holes so they don’t become oversaturated and moldy. Placing the potting soil on metal sawhorses will not only lift the bags off the hot concrete, but it will also make your job easier and better for your spine.
The second step is to sow your seeds.
Spread your seeds now that your bag is perfectly placed and opened. A great tip is to mix your seeds with cornmeal in a spice bottle to see if they are evenly distributed on the soil. Then sprinkle a small amount of soil on top. Mist the seeds with water to set them in.
Water is the third step.
Watering is the most important factor. You should take it slowly at first so that they can settle in and establish their roots. You can accomplish this by lightly misting the surface with a spray bottle. Continue with more normal watering once the plants have normalized. Remember to keep your bags moist but not wet at all times.
Harvesting is the fourth step.
Enjoy your plants now that they’ve grown! Remember not to pull out the plants of vegetables like lettuce and spinach. Simply remove the leaves. This way, you can watch them grow back quickly, happily, and healthily in your potting soil bags without having to worry about weeds.
