The Westland growbag is a versitile planting bag which can be used anywhere from a windowsill to the greenhouse for growing flowers, fruit or vegetables. It is filled with a specially formulated compost which is rich in potash.
The Westland Growbag is suitable for greenhouses, conservatories or patio use, inside or outside in a sheltered and sunny spot. Please remember to choose your growbag position carefully as it is unwise to move once crops are planted.

• Before use, shake the growbag until the compost has loosened to provide a greater depth for planting.

• When growing tomatoes aid pollination by carefully shaking or spraying the plants on a regular basis.
