    Hi,

    I’ve just finished creating a small straw bale garden for my veggies.

    Unfortunately I had to use hay so I’m hoping the remaining seeds won’t grow to much! Ive just finished putting the organic fertiliser in the bales to get them activated and should start planting in about two weeks.

    Has anyone else used this method and have any tips of advice? For anyone wanting to explore the idea check out YouTube for straw bale garden beds! 🙂

    Yes that’s interesting. I’ll be planting into the top of my bales whereas this links shows the planting between the bales. I guess you could do both at the same time

    Saw the you tube looks interesting
    Probably be a good way to retain moisture and also good for crap soils.
    I might try some on the horizontal to my slope to act as a swale aswell
    Slow the water down and build a little soil along the way.
