Straw Bale Gardening is container gardening taken to the next level. As the straw inside the bale starts to decompose and creates the perfect environment for your seedlings.

From what I have read, the best straw bales for a garden are wheat, oats, rye or barley straw. These consist of stalks left from harvesting grain; they have been through a combine harvester and had the seeds threshed from them, leaving none or very few left.

This is an alternative gardening method that is definitely getting more popular and is something that I definitely need to try!
