My plan this year is to brighten up my walls. I came across some cheap hanging grow bags and want to try grow a variety of things in them. I know strawberries, lettuce, peas, cucumbers grow well just wondering if there is anything else i could try?

I'm thinking of giving strawberries a go in a hanging grow bag too.

Where did you come across your cheap hanging grow bags?

I hadn't thought of lettuce - good idea! Would courgettes and tomatoes grow in such a bag? (I was thinking of making an upside-down planter for tomatoes)

Hey

I got them on ebay. I got 18 of then for something like 13e. That was a few weeks ago though when the exchange was better. The seller combines shipping if you order more than 1 lot. I'd say courgettes and tomatoes would work fine also. I want to try as many thing as I can think of.

Here a link to that seller if your interested

Freaky! I've just bought some bags on a whim ... from the same seller.

Thanks for the link though.

I'm looking forward to giving these a go.

Hi foxroxks,

How about cranberries.
Herbs like chives,marjoram, oregano ect.
Runner beans, french beans and soya beans are worth a try.
There are also hanging snap- dragons.
