    Hi there. I have a patio rather than a garden so I would have to use a barrier. I'm just wondering, if these sacks are biodegradable, how do I prevent the soil from falling all over the place by the end of harvest season?

    Those bags are sprayed with kerosine before being imported in order to keep insects away from the green coffee beans . I don't think they are very safe to grow in.

    Hi, I have a problem with snails in my garden. Can snails go over the burlap fabric? Or is it to dry and a natural barrier for snails?

    Hi Sophie S, you can get burlap sacks at feed stores, coffee shops and online. If you want to use a lot, there's a good deal at the OnlineFabricStore. I think they'll ship them free if you spend $50 or more. Last time I checked, they were $1.52 for 12 oz. weight. I like the heavier ones, The 7 oz. bags are thin. Hope that helps 🙂

    Thanks Nancy for the nice comment. I'm definitely bringing back the burlap sack at school this year. Our strawberries grew so well in them that the runners were everywhere and we made 40 new strawberry plants from the seven we began with. Good luck with all your gardening : )

    Very nice video. I had grown potatoes in straw and decided to try the coffee bean bag this year. I didn't realize that if I have a worm composter they will eat it. I love that you show using them lying sideways as well as upright. Telling me where jute comes from was a bonus as well. Keep up the great work. P.S. the child interaction is sweet.

    Thanks for the video! Just watched one with over 200,000 views showing how he cut milk jugs for tomatoes, but didn't post the results lol.
