I am quite sure they are growing Chinese Cabbage Bok Choy, but I can't verify that as it doesn't mention it on their FB page.
However I feel that I can provide the information that you are looking for to and teach you how to go about making your very own Lettuce Grow Bag. I will place the steps below in bullet points.
- Find an old bag, preferably similar to the material above. Most fertilizer and compost come in these types of bags, so they are readily available
- You could also just buy the bag with potting mix inside and then just punch the holes through.
- These bags tear easily, but don't make the holes too large, so the soil falls out.
- Fill the grow bag with a high premium organic potting mix.
- Buy or sprout your own seedling, any type of Lettuce will grow, and you could even grow Bok Choy or Cabbages. Even Spinach the climbing variety would work well.
- You could also make a bag with a variety of plants such as strawberries, lettuce and miniature tomatoes.
- You could get 2 plantings from one bag
- One trick would be to plant at different times, about two weeks apart so you can continually harvest. So, it would be best to have about 3 bags going at anyone time.
- Remember that the water will run through
