reusage of growbags

norfolk, United Kingdom Gb

i grow tomatoes in growbags each year, rather than throwing the bags away each year, can i grow other vegetables in them the following year? it seems such a waste to get rid of them, lesleylu



I just layer mine in the compost, the heat kills off any bugs
and the material is rejuvenated ready for use on the garden the following year.

If you think about it, your tomatoes will have used up the nutrients in the bags as well as there being possible bugs and other nasties! - and it isn't good practice to use last year's compost, it's always better to use fresh.
