DIY Portable FIESTA Grow Garden Bags


With spring just around the corner I am DREAMING of sunshine and flowers. But mostly SUNSHINE 🙂

This year we now have a trampoline taking up half of our back yard which means no more garden beds. This got me to think of alternative ways to create a garden and use the space and sunlight we have as efficient as possible.

In researching I found a lot of apartment/condo living folks use grow bags to help make their plants portable as well as customize the size they need for the size of outdoor space they may have available to them.

For special veggie varieties, this article talks about grow bag advantages.

Here is an article on using the actual compost bag as a grow bag… although, what’s the fun in that?


As utility as these articles on grow bags are, I really wanted to come up with my own that would also add a little style to my garden.
