Remember to trim the herbs so that they continually produce—basil, oregano and parsley can get a bit leggy if they aren’t cropped regularly.
Chillies and peppers grow excellently in grow bags. Planting two in a bag produces really big plants, but planting three will supply smaller versions as the plants are all competing for the same moisture, nutrients and water.
Alternatively, create a flowering grow bag by cutting a big triangle out and planting geraniums, marigolds and begonias to form a flourishing feature of flowers. This is a particularly good idea for children, enabling them to plant, water and care for a selection of plants that they have chosen. This will teach them patience, how to nurture, and connect them with nature.
