These grow bags work great for people who:
- live in an urban or suburban location
- want the ability to move plants out of inclement weather (not possible with a traditional garden and very difficult with a heavy clay pot)
- a HOA (Home Owner’s Association) which will not allow a traditional garden, but will allow potted plants
- little to no topsoil
- poor or unhealthy soil
“I purchased several grow pots from MEG’s Edible Landscapes. I had great success in growing several varieties of peppers, tomatoes, basil and cucumbers. I also grew hibiscus, cornflowers and sunflowers. Andrew, the owner of MEG’s is very knowledgeable and patient. He provided me with many tips that contributed to the success I had and the resulting bounty of vegetables and blossoms. A beautiful thing!”
“MEG’s Grow Bags provide a gardening experience for every gardener at heart, an equitable opportunity, regardless of land or cement outside the door! I have a sizable garden, yet added MEG’s bags-chili peppers, watermelon, lemon-cucumber, primarily due to a tough growing season. The yield of chili peppers was substantial and continued producing throughout the summer! We were able to enjoy plenty of salsa and colorful fajitas. I’ve never tasted anything like the lemon cucumbers! They were juicy, zesty and delightful with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. MEG’s owner is attentive, professional and extremely knowledgeable about his products.”
“Andy is 100% committed to customer satisfaction and you can tell how proud he is of his product. He is knowledgeable of what it takes to grow plants and is constantly seeking new ways to make gardening better. Always a quality product and if issues arise (animals, insects, etc) after you purchase he will help to find a solution.”
Frequently Asked Questions:
|Are your grow bags organic certified? |
Not currently. We use synthetic fertilizer and organic practices. Any products we use on the plants before they get to you comply with the OMRI.
Do I have to spend endless hours pulling weeds?
|Do I have to buy a tiller?|
|Do I have to transplant them into a garden?|
Nope. They grow in the bag!
|So, what’s the catch?|
There’s no catch. You literally just have to place the grow bag in a sunny spot and add water. It’s that easy!
