How to Grow Potatoes in Recycled Coffee Sacks

Growing potatoes all year round and above ground is easier. Cindy Rajhel of shows how she grows her potatoes in recycled coffee sacks.

Coffee sacks can serve as natural grow bags for planting potatoes above ground which you can then place on your balcony, backyard, or patio. This is just perfect if you want an efficient vessel for your plants that looks more natural and can add rustic beauty to your garden or surroundings at the same time.

Coffee sacks are usually made of burlap—a coarse canvas woven from fiber like hemp or jute. This material allows for built-in drainage holes and provides air flow for the plants. Potatoes can be planted all year round. They last one season and can be recycled as compost after.
