Straw Bale Gardens

Joel Karston is a landscape professional in Minnesota.  He has pioneered a method of growing plants in straw bales.  According to Joel, it's a different type of container gardening.  The straw is conditioned, much like compost, before planting.   Joel recommends planting from seedling rather than planting from seed.  Bales only last one season.
