Choosing herbs and salad leaves for growing-bags
There is almost always a sunny spot near the kitchen with room enough for a growing-bag for herbs. Parsley and mint are useful while the taste of fresh home-grown basil and coriander is often superior to shop-bought.
Additionally, popular herbs such as chives, dill, marjoram, tarragon and thyme and salad leaves including cress, cut-and-come-again leaves, endive, rocket, lettuce, leaf beet and spinach are ideal for a late crop of undemanding leaves in a growing-bag.
Benefits for broadcast seed:
When using new growing-bags which offer a sterile growing medium, broadcasting seeds (i.e. scattered across the surface rather than in drills) is easy to manage since unwanted weed seeds should not be a problem. Weed seedlings are always difficult to tell apart from the sown seedlings when broadcast into the soil or non-sterile growing media, with the danger that you may pull out the wrong ones!
