Bag gardening couldn’t be easier! Simply set out purchased bags of topsoil, cut them open, and plant seeds and seedlings right into the topsoil. The bag garden in this plan will be brimming with more than 20 vegetables and culinary herbs by its third year!

Topsoil and other soil amendments are sold by weight or volume. For this garden plan, use 40-pound bags, which cover a 2-by-3-foot space and provide ample room for the roots of most vegetables.
