Position it so that the soil remains at the same level as it was in the pot and water the plants in well. Give them a bit more while they’re new, but don’t waterlog the container. Trim the herbs so they continually produce – basil, oregano and parsley can get a bit leggy if they aren’t cropped regularly.
Chillies and peppers grow really well in grow bags and containers, too. Planting two in a bag produces really big plants.
Alternatively, create a flowering grow bag by cutting a big triangle out of the centre and planting some geraniums, marigolds and begonias.
