Grow bags have been around since the 1970s, and were first created for use in achieving the correct balance of soil and nutrients for growing people’s tomato plants. There was a dissatisfaction with the fact that soil needed to be changed every few years for the best results. People wanted bigger crops instead of declining numbers.

Most people usually grow their tomatoes in the same place in their garden, or green house every year. Without changing the soil, tomato plants gradually build up diseases and pests to the roots of each plant. This often means that where tomatoes may start out producing slightly bigger tomatoes after a while, the crop then changes for the worse. Instead of normal sized tomatoes, people suddenly have smaller tomatoes. Hence Grow Bags were created, making the change easier for beautiful crops of tomatoes.

You can use Grow Bags for more than tomatoes. You can use them for all sorts of vegetables and fruit, and differing plant types. Putting two to three plants in each grow bag of the same type of plant, means that it gets the same feeding and watering routine for that plant type. Make sure when putting any support for the plants, such as canes, or trellis, in the Grow Bags, that you do not accidently poke any holes in the bottom of the bags.

All in all, grow bags will safeguard your plants. And getting the hang of watering them gets easier. You just need to poke your finger into the compost, to see if it needs more water or not. If it is moist it doesn’t, if it is slightly dry, then it does. It is better to water a little bit, but regularly, than lots, infrequently. As your plants get bigger, they will need more water.
