One of the most frequently asked questions I get when out and about is where can I put my BaleGrow bales?
The simple answer is anywhere. You do want to keep a few things in mind, the most important being sunshine. To have a happy, healthy and productive garden, your bales will need 5 – 6 hours of sun per day. This is the minimum amount of sun that your plants need to grow. If you have the option of full sun, this is even better. Most vegetables grow best with plenty of sun.
Full sun or part shade?
This is, in my opinion, the biggest advantage to gardening in straw bales. Your bales can go anywhere. If there is sun, water and a space a little larger that a straw bale… your bales can go there. This means you can utilise any area in your front or back yard to be productive.
