Are Grow Bags Good For Growing Vegetables?

“Are grow bags good for growing a vegetable garden and how long do they last?” Question from Erin of Kirkwood, Missouri

Answer: I have used grow bags and found that they are very good for vegetable growing. Grow bags are inexpensive, remain aerated, and provide a lot of space for plant growth. The life of each will depend on the manufacturer. Smart Pots is one of the best manufacturers of grow bags, and their products last from three to five years, according to their website. Grow bags will not last as long as a traditional raised bed, but they are reasonably priced and offer an easy way to test out raised bed gardening without the high cost. I recommend them

Happy gardening!
