How To Grow Salad In Plastic Bags | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

These gardens using recycled plastic are something I have been interested in for a very long time, but little did I realize that you could also grow salad greens n plastic bags! It was so amazing to find out because I not only love fresh herbs and vegetables for the pasta and homemade pizzas I make for my family, but really for every meal I cook. When I buy it either freshly cut or actually growing in a pot, it withers and dies quickly and pre-cut is very expensive, also organic is my choice but it can also be expensive.  Recently, however, I found this video by Home & Garden on Youtube that demonstrated how to quickly you can grow vegetables and lettuce plants to an almost infinite number of plants in recycled plastic bags so you can have a never-ending food supply. He grows all kinds of plants on a rooftop garden for very little to no cash outlay. In fact, if you did it for one year using this method you could have so much food from your plants, you might never have to buy any fresh salad greens at the grocery store. The bag potting and growing methods were not hard to follow at all and you only need a few materials.



  • Potting Soil
  • Plastic Grocery Bags
  • Seeds (or plant cuttings to begin growth)
  • Water
  • Sunlight
