Coffee Sack Herb Garden

How To Grow Herbs in ContainersRecycled coffee sacks make great planting containers because they look natural, drain well and can be composted later. I don’t need permanent garden containers. The bottoms of these sacks will rot out if I don’t put a barrier down but that’s ok with me. Makes herb gardening easy, fun and beautiful.



  1. What i don’t understood is in truth how you’re not actually much more smartly-liked
    than you might be now. You are so intelligent.
    You understand thus significantly in relation to this matter, made
    me in my opinion consider it from so many various angles.
    Its like women and men aren’t fascinated unless it’s one thing to
    accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent.
    At all times deal with it up!

  2. I pay a visit daily a few web pages and websites to read articles,
    except this website offers feature based writing.

  3. Where did you get them from? Would a local cafe have them?

    • It would be easy if we lived in Seattle! There are coffee companies that give them away or sell them for cheap up there. They don’t ship cheaply though.

      In San Diego, there are a few places that will give up several at a time. Come to find out they donate most to the zoo for animal care and play. Maybe find some coffee houses up your way that would donate a few to you or next time your down in San Diego let me know and I’ll give you some. They would be cool around your self-watering containers, don’t ya think?

      I’m growing potatoes (made a video) and lettuce in them too. I bought some wholesale (pallet in my garage to my husband’s dismay!) and sell them for a few bucks each at the Vista Farmers Market where I offer some inventive and inspiring Garden Gifts and Kits. I’ve also got some sisal sacks (lots lighter in both weight and color).

      To use them on a balcony, stick a liner in them to keep the dirt from staining the floor. (The honey vendor at the Market loves them to smoke bees so I donate any ripped ones to him.) Mulch, oh yeah, gonna use them for that too. Let me know!
