Question

L.viswanathan
Is fhere anything by name TUBE COMPOST?
One of our local small farmers grows strawberries in fabric tubes that lay on the concrete floor. He buys the "tubes" from a supplier and has a machine that fills the tubes with finished compost. They are laid on the floor and holes are cut to insert the strawberry plants. Is this what you were thinking of? (By the way, the strawberries are wonderful.)
P.S. I should have added that the concrete floor is in a greenhouse.
