Straw Bale Garden Part 2

15th March 2013 by

Last week my friend came and put some chestnut posts in at either end of my straw bales to keep them secure and to attach supports for the plants if they grow!  I put a couple of heavy planters at the end of the front two bales and will plant them up as well.  the bales have been watered well with rainwater from the water butts and today its raining.

Next on goes the compost.. together with some seaweed and occasionally a wee! Looking good so far! I haven’t yet decided which veg I will plant in the bales, but I am thinking of tomatoes, cucumber, runner beans and some French beans and herbs in the sides.

Here is the expert http://strawbalegardener.wordpress.com/
