On a balcony or in a garden with poor soil, bagging is an easy and quick option to set up.

They are light, easy to transport and withstand both shocks and extreme temperatures. In geotextile or batyline canvas, the bags from the French company Bacsac, designed by a designer and two landscapers, are an interesting alternative to flower pots and vegetable plots to be installed on the balcony or terrace. They are used like regular pots: fill them with soil, plant and water!

Plant the vegetables in a bag of potting soil

To improvise a pocket vegetable garden on a balcony or in a land where the land is not cultivable (poor or unprepared), it is possible to plant directly in a bag of soil enriched with organic substance (manure or algae).

It's very simple, prick one side with a fork to let the water drain and cover the whole with a burlap or a scrap fabric that you will staple, it's prettier. Make cross incisions in the bag and plant your plants in each hole, placing the highest in the middle and the smallest around, and respecting the planting distances.

Water liberally after planting, once a week when growing, then every four days when fruiting.

The right substrate

In addition to good exposure (to the sun for most vegetable and aromatic plants), it is essential to adapt the substrate of your bag garden to the cultivated plants. It will be rich for vegetables, consisting of half of potting soil, a quarter of land and a quarter of compost. For greedy plants like tomatoes where the eggplants, increase the proportion of compost. For dry soil plants - succulents, lavender, thyme, etc. - it should be draining: mix half of potting soil with one quarter of earth and one quarter of sand.

The following year, collect the substrate from your pots or your bagged garden, add compost and reuse it for new plantings.

    Nightmare. I have just watched the news, just the oxen are rising, how can we live if the price of oil has dropped so much. Some figures and revenues were included in the budget, now we see others. I wonder how long our stabilization fund will be enough for us with this approach. Sorry, I'm so close to the topic. But this is also important, it seems to me.
