Commercial growers value fabric pots because the porous material permits the aeration and drainage needed for healthy growth. Proper ventilation ensures roots become naturally air-pruned, which helps them develop into a hardy, fibrous root system that is more efficient at absorbing water and nutrients. The ventilation also helps disperse excess heat. Although supple enough to fold flat easily for end-of-season
storage, our fabric pots have hemmed rims that help the pot walls remain rigid enough to hold their shape in use.
Our 1- and 2-gallon pots are just the right size for small plants or seedlings, and the hook-and-loop seam in the side allows you to easily keep the plant, roots and soil intact when removing them from the pot, minimizing transplant shock. The three larger sizes have sturdy nylon handles for easier handling when filled with soil. The 7-gallon pot is a convenient size for growing herbs and greens, the 10-gallon pot is ideal for tomatoes, peppers or large perennials, and the 20-gallon pot is suitable for small trees, shrubs, potatoes or large mixed plantings. With any of the three larger sizes, you can make small X-shaped cuts to allow small plants to grow through the sides of the pot. Dimensions listed are diameter by depth.
As a practical alternative to bulky plastic planters, the square and rectangular planters are made of the same strong, porous material as the fabric pots above, and are supported by a PVC frame that press-fits together in minutes. The rectangular planter is well suited to deep-rooted plants. The square planter has a 3' x 3' surface area that can be easily divided into nine equal square-foot sections to conform with a popular gardening method intended to maximize crop yield in a limited growing space. Both planters can be easily disassembled for compact storage at season’s end. Dimensions listed are depth by length by width.
Made in USA.
The Square and Rectangular Planters are available only at our retail stores.
