How To Use Plant GrowBags

Choose the plants that do well in containers, such as tomatoes, peppers, herbs, leafy greens, beans, cucumbers, and compact flowering annuals.

Step 1

Match the grow bag to the plant’s root and foliage volume.

Step 2

Fill the bags with high-quality potting mix.

Step 3

After adding potting soil to a grow bag, shake the bag from side to side before planting.

Step 4

While your potting soil has some nutrients, plants in grow bags need extra.

Step 5

Since grow bags have excellent drainage, they maintain consistent soil moisture.

Step 6

Place your grow bags in areas with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily, especially for fruiting and flowering plants.
