Have you discovered Straw Bale Gardening? It’s captured the imagination of gardeners and we couldn’t wait to share with you.

There are many benefits. You can move it around your yard, it’s inexpensive and will break down to compost when it decomposes.

There are a few steps you will need to go through. The first is to condition your straw bale so that it is perfect for planting.

Bonnie Plants suggest that when you condition your Bale that you face your bale with the cut side of the straw up as shown on the left side above. We love the idea of popping your Bale in a mobile planter so it can be moved in and out of the sun.
