Note:

Authors Note:

This is an extended and fuller version of the original compact work – ‘Growing vegetables in an RS Combo ™’ and as such you may well be familiar with some of the content in this book. However I believe that even though you may have purchased the original volume, you will benefit greatly from the many additions that this work contains.

This includes over 20%  additional text plus a total of  43 pictures and illustrations, to further educate on the theory and practice behind my RS Combo technique.

A Comprehensive Q & A page will answer many of the questions you may have regarding aspects of growing in an RS Combo, as well as practical advice on building the structure itself.

Straw Bale Gardening techniques coupled with Raised Bed Gardening practices, I believe are the near-perfect solution to many issues regarding production, plant care, insect & pest control – just to name a few!

Many thanks for joining with myself and others as we seek to keep healthy by growing healthy through organic, renewable and sustainable growing practices such as this RS Combo™  horticultural system.

A Brief History of Straw Bale/Raised Bed Gardening

There is a growing interest these days in healthy eating and environmentally aware practices, that do minimal damage to our eco system, improve our personal health and save money.

Both systems are ancient in their use, but it is fair to say that in recent times they have had something of a revival, as interest in growing vegetables in limited spaces, or micro-gardening, seems to grow exponentially year-on-year.

With regard to growing vegetables in straw bales particularly. Although some modern-day authors try to claim Straw Bale Gardening as their own ‘invention’ this is most definitely not the case. Growing vegetables in straw bales has been done extensively by commercial farmers since the 1950’s, not only in the USA but throughout Europe and elsewhere.

Numerous Universities have publications, and have courses on growing vegetables in this manner. Indeed Professor  Tadeusz Pudelski (1926–2012) of the University of Life Sciences in Poznan, Poland; taught this concept of growing vegetables in straw bales, and published details of it through the University in 1971.

A very good friend of mine qualified with a Master’s degree in Horticulture from this very university. Growing vegetables in straw bales constituted a part of  that degree course.

Before the development of modern machinery produced the first straw bales that we would recognise today, the ancient Scots would grow vegetables in their middens – which were basically
