Straw Bale Gardening is a way to grow vegetables, herbs or flowers in bales of straw. You can think of this method as a different type of container gardening. The outer crust of your straw bale serves as the “container.” By sprinkling BaleBuster™ and watering the straw for a few days, the inside of your bale becomes “conditioned” into an extraordinarily productive, warm, moist, nutrient-rich rooting environment for young plants and seeds. The conditioning process is essential for this method of gardening and can be done whenever night-time temperatures stay above 40 degrees. Straw Bale Gardening allows you to begin your growing season early, garden at a more comfortable height, use water efficiently and avoid the frustrations of weeding.

Absolutely! There are enthusiastic Straw Bale Gardeners in at least 62 countries of the world already, in climates as different as Alaska, Israel, Switzerland and Hawaii. If you have a location where the plants in your bale will get at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, you can get great results with this easy method of gardening.

If you like the idea of growing your own fresh vegetables and herbs, you should plant a Straw Bale Garden!
  • EVEN IF you only have a small amount of space
  • EVEN IF you’ve never grown a houseplant
  • EVEN IF your mobility is limited to a wheelchair
  • EVEN IF your knees and back don’t like bending and kneeling
  • EVEN IF you live in an area with water restrictions
  • EVEN IF you tried growing a garden in the soil before, but didn’t succeed because of insects, plant diseases or weeds.
  • EVEN IF you love traditional gardening but just feel curious about this method!
Straw Bale Gardens aren’t soil dependent, so you can grow your garden almost anywhere. A balcony, a patio, a driveway or even a sidewalk can all be a perfect spot for your Bale Garden In-A-Box™. One clever Straw Bale Gardener in New York City used an empty parking lot space to grow her vegetable garden!
Nope! The simplicity of Straw Bale Gardening makes it easy for brand new gardeners to succeed. Experienced gardeners LOVE this method for many reasons (including the fact that they don’t need to waste time pulling weeds).
