What makes Root Pouch plant pots a more sustainable gardening option?

Root Pouch plant pots used reclaimed plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in landfills. Using recycled plastic requires no new plastic to be made, which saves on petroleum and uses no fossil fuels.

What makes Root Pouch plant pots a better choice for healthier plants?

Root Pouch plant pots are more breathable and water-efficient, encouraging a more fibrous, dense root structure and preventing roots from circling. They also provide superior insulation, protecting plants against winter cold and summer heat.

What are Root Pouch plant pots made of?

Root Pouch plant pots are made of PETE (polythehylene terephthalate) derived from plastic bottles. This material is spun into fibers that are mixed with recycled cotton fibers, which degrade harmlessly over time. The resulting geotextile is available in four versions, each with a different degradation schedule—from six months to six years.

Product Q&A


Q
Do these fabric pots drain on there own or do they have drain holes, if not can holes be put in them?
A
The Root Pouch is made with breathable fabric that should not require additional drain holes. You can add holes to the Root Pouch however we would not recommend it.

Q
Will you be carrying the green & red boxer Root Pouches?
A
At this time we have not made plans to stock the Red or Green Root Pouches.

Q
Would this product work for plants like zucchini or squash?
A
Yes, the Root Pouch can be used for this application.

Q
What size root pouch should you use for a tomato plant?
A
We would suggest the 3 or 5 gallon Root Pouches for this application.

Q
Can you tell me about the food safety of these, since they are manufactured from recycled plastic? I am trying to avoid anything harmful that may leach into my vegetable plants. I have been looking only for food grade growing containers.
A
While the Root Pouch is made from recycled materials, the use of them in the garden is not harmful in any way. In fact, our master gardener has successfully grown vegetables in them for many years and loves the ease of using something as efficient and durable as the Root Pouch. They will help boost plant growth and yields and naturally degrade over time depending on the Pouch being purchased.

Q
How many years can these pots last? I want to use them to grow blueberry bushes in. Will they work?
A
Yes, the Root Pouch could be used to grow blueberry bushes in and have the longest lifespan of any of the Root Pouch products. We can not give a definitive timeframe for breakdown of the materials however because the breakdown rate will change depending on growing conditions used.

Q
Could I use these to grow potatoes? What size?
A
Yes, this product can be used to successfully grow potatoes. Our master gardener stated that he would use our ten gallon Root Pouch Pots.

Q
Could I use these for ornamental grass like Overdam? And if so, what size do you recommend?
A
Our master gardener states that the Root Pouches can be used for growing ornamental grasses and would suggest our 3 gallon pouch or larger for use.

Q
What is the price of the 3 gal. and the 5 gal.? Is there a min to buy as I only have a small garden.
A
Located directly across from the product image you will find a selection box listing all of the sizes and quantities that we offer with the corresponding prices.

Q
I'm wanting a product that will provide a barrier to nematodes. I have been using large plastic plots, but there are nutrient and drainage issues with those. I am assuming the roots do not penetrate the bag?
A
Roots will attach to the fabric of the Root Pouch Boxer Brown Fabric Pot but will not penetrate through the material. Our master gardener suggests placing the Root Pouch Pots on ground cover to assist with creating a barrier for nematodes.

Q
Do these pouches have to be planted in the ground or can they be used as planters above ground?
A
Depending on the version that you plan on using, the Root Pouch products can successfully be used above ground or can be planted into the ground.

Q
Does water seep through the pots after watering?
A
Yes, the Root Pouch products are permeable.

Q
Can you give me the size for the 65 gallon and the 100 gallon?
A
The 65 gallon Boxer Brown Root Pouch dimensions are 32"W x 18"H while the 100 gallon Root Pouch dimensions are 38"W x 20"H.

Q
I have asked this before and have not seen an answer. You say these are the "longest lasting" root pouches - how long is that? A range is given for the other Root pouch products - what is the range for this? Also your suggested pot sizes for growing vegetables in these seem small. A 3 gallon container is too small for any tomato - you need at least 10 gallons and better 15 gallon size for tomatoes. You can probably grow some mini or cherry tomatoes in 5 gallon.
A
Unfortunately, we cannot give a definitive time-frame for breakdown of the materials because the breakdown rate will change depending on the growing conditions. The expected lifespan for the Root Pouch Boxer Brown Fabric Pots will depend on a variety of factors including: what is being grown, physical location, soil type used, amount of watering, amount of sunlight, whether the pot is being planted or used above ground, etc. The manufacturer, Root Pouch, does not state an estimated lifespan for the Boxer Brown Pots for these reasons. Usage sizes are based on our master gardener's information as he has been successfully growing a wide variety of plants in our different Root Pouch products for multiple years.

Q
Is this product appropriate for indoor house plants? I would place the plant in the root pouch and set into a decorative container with a thin plastic water tray under the root pouch. Do you have any suggestions for improvement?
A
The Boxer Brown Root Pouch can be used for this application.

Q
What size root pouch do you recommend for zucchini and squash?
A
We would suggest using the 5 or 7 gallon Boxer Brown Root Pouch for growing zucchini and squash.

Q
Are the handles on the 5 gal size strong enough to hang the pouch?
A
The 5 gallon Boxer Brown Root Pouch is constructed with reinforced, industrial strength stitching to assist with strength and durability. The handles have been double stitched and should be able to used for hanging, depending on the weight of the pouch.

Q
The produce selection box has an option for 3 gallon & 3 gallon tall. What is the difference between them?
A
The 3 gallon Tall Boxer Brown Root Pouch dimensions will differ from the Standard 3 gallon Pouch. The 3 gallon Tall dimensions are 8 1/2" W x 11" H.

Q
Can I grow blueberry and or blackberry bushes in the 25# Root Pouch?
A
Our master gardener stated that the 25 gallon Root Pouch Fabric Pots should be able to be used for effectively growing blueberry and blackberry bushes.

Q
Can you plant eggplant in a root pouch? If so, what size pouch and how many plants per pouch? Love these bags! Highly recommend these over other grow bags.
A
Our master gardener suggested transplanting eggplant seedlings into 5-7 gallon Root Pouch Fabric Pots.

Q
What size root pouch should be used for an okra plant?
A
Our master gardener suggested using the 5 gallon Root Pouch Fabric Pots for growing okra.

Q
How do you wash or clean root pouches?
A
The manufacturer states that the Root Pouch Fabric Pots are washable, however, they recommend washing them with an earth friendly detergent and then letting them air dry before use.

Q
Could these be used to grow citrus trees (which are in 15 gallon plastic now) for a few years before placing in ground? What size do you suggest, if so?
A
Our master gardener suggested using a 20 Gallon Root Pouch for this application.

Q
Would these pouches work in a preschool setting to store toys? We want something organic looking, washable, bacteria resistant, and something other than the typical plastic containers and wicker baskets...
A
The Root Pouch Fabric Pots should be able to be used in this application.

Q
In what country are pots manufactured?
A
The Root Pouch is manufactured in Asia.

Q
What size root pouch do you recommend for greens?
A
Our master gardener suggested using 2-3 gallons pots for growing most greens, depending on the type, variety, and number of plants being grown.

Q
If placed on soil will roots grow through the bottom into the soil beneath?
A
Our master gardener stated that roots could eventually begin to grow through the Boxer Brown Root Pouch Fabric Pots and into the soil, however, he stated that it could take an extended period of time before you begin to see this happen.

Q
root pouch pots have a note saying Sizes 5 Gallon and up have handles (do not carry when full) if you cant use the handles to move bag when full, what is their purpose?
A
The handles of the Root Pouch Fabric Pots can be used to assist with re-location, shuffling, dragging, or rotation of the pots when filled with soil. Lifting the larger sized Root Pouch Pots completely off of the ground when filled with heavy soil could result in tearing or fraying of the materials due to extra stress. Also, the Root Pouch Pots with handles can be used for non-garden related needs and the handles provide and ease for carrying purposes.

Q
Approx how many cubic feet of potting mix will a 5 gallon pouch hold when filled to the top
A
Per the dimensions listed, the 5 gallon Boxer Brown Root Pouches should hold approximately 0.4 cu. ft. of potting mix, depending on whether the mixture is dry or moistened and the type of mixture being used.

Q
I bought one 25 gallon root pouch as an experiment. I live in Sarasota Fl central Florida. What should I put underneath the brown root pouch? As it is going outside. To grow some peas in.
A
A single 25 gallon Boxer Brown Root Pouch should be able to fit inside of the Square Garden Tray (CN-GAR-045).

Q
Is this material made out of PET or PETE plastic? Another person asked about leeching chemicals such as carcinogens but you didn't actually answer the question instead you deflected and said you have no problems growing things which wasn't the question at hand.
A
Per the Product Description area, "Root Pouch plant pots are made of PETE derived from plastic bottles." The Root Pouch Pots will not leach chemicals and the manufacturer states that the pots are, "developed to meet safety and sanitary requirements to better ensure a safe product for human applications. Root Pouch fabrics are designed to support use for growing materials that come in contact with products to be consumed. Our fabrics have undergone and passed rigorous testing by global, international testing & certification laboratory in accordance with FDA contact test 21 CFR 177.1630. They are BPA free and UV resistant."

Q
Can you lift plant by handles with 65 and 100 gallon bags
A
We would advise against moving the larger sized Root Pouch Fabrics Pots by the handles after they have been filled with your chosen growing medium.

Q
How quickly does evaporation happen in a hot dry climate? Will the bags retain moisture? Clay pot dry way to fast out here in West Texas
A
The Root Pouch Fabric Pots will maintain a small amount of moisture, however, they are made with fibrous materials and will experience normal evaporation rates when exposed to the elements in hot, dry climates. The Root Pouch Pots may be able to retain higher moisture levels if placed inside of a plastic made pot as they will not have direct exposure to sunlight and wind.

Q
If using these for a container garden, can one leave the dirt in them over the winter, so they would be ready to use next spring. I live in Missouri and we can have very cold winters.
A
You should be able to leave soil in the Boxer Brown Root Pouch Fabric Pots over the winter.

Well-made, durable, perfect for growing plants. I chose 2 sizes and have basil growing in one and tomato plants in the larger size.I love that boxer root pouches allow me to move my plants about the yard. I am using metal wire supporting frames for the tomatoes and these fit perfectly into the root pouch, to train and support the tomato plants. I recommend this product without reservation.

Using as an alternative method of growing my garden, as I have hard clay soil. My plants grow very rapid and strong in the root pouches, and I only need to water weekly. I am very pleased. I have already made second purchase.

Well made bags. Lightweight. My tomatoes and peppers did wat better that the ground ones. I have 5 gallon bags (20) and 15 gallon bags(10). I think they should last at least a few (3-5) years based on the fact that I only emptied a few of the small ones last fall and kept the rest outside full of soil, and they came out of zone 6 Michigan winter without any problems. Great roots in the bags I emptied. For the price, great investment. Some bags had green (algae?) in the outside bottom.

I have ordered these four times now. They do not take up space in the shed when not in use. They are strong and easy to move. They are attractive in our garden. I can place plants on uneven surfaces without leveling. the plant roots are happy. We get healthier plants than with other methods of container gardening.

I love my root pouches! I got 7 for the inside of my home and 1 for outside. I can see how easy these are to move and water. I would like to request to create these pouches for hanging baskets that are wide at the top and smaller dimension at the bottom like those straw things you get a lowes which would give a wider area for plants to grow. The gentleman I talked with before ordering was very helpful & patient since this is a new adventure for me. Thanks & I will be ordering more when I move .

I purchased 18 Brown Fabric Grow bags in the 100 gallon size. These are, by far, the best bags I have purchased. Great fabric weight, they don't collapse when filling them with soil, and stitching is consistent and well done. Much much better that the black ones being sold everywhere else.

Originally bought for 3 root bound rodys bought. Flowers started dying and when I took the plant out of pot, I was sickened. Can't believe Grange, or any store would sell a root bound plant. Fortunately, found Greenhouse Megastore and their "root pots" have handles! Bought medium size pot to use for smart pot raised bed. Oh, these work so GREAT!! I'm able to companion plant; hook up the drip irrigation and have as many as I want! My veggies have been growing 3 weeks and already need a bigger "Root Pot!" I'm sure the replant will be just as easy as planting originally! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

2 gallon grow bag size

Was this review helpful?
Yes (2)No(10)
I used a different site to buy this company's 2 gallon grow bag, a site that did not have the measurements noted. I assumed that a two gallon grow bag would equate in size to about two gallons of milk. I figured that would be enough to use in my rain gutter garden system to grow tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, peppers, etc. Boy, was I WRONG. The pots I received, which were of great quality, were FAR TOO SMALL to grow vegetables. You need a minimum of 5 gallons. I feel like I was misled. What am I going to do with $69 (with shipping) worth of far too small grow bags? Why isn't a 2 gallon grow bag the equivalent of 2 gallons of milk? Watch out for this trick.

Bought these because the next size down was out of stock when I ordered. HUGE planters! I transplanted my Moringa trees (one per planter) with some lemongrass. All the plants took well to their new homes. The fabric feels very sturdy/well constructed. Bought the style with handles. I had purchased some of the smaller size planters a year old - stood up well to Florida sun, and being dragged, lifted, pushed, pull etc in and out of green house for winter, back out again, and still holding up well. I did have one of the smaller planters (one year old) lose a handle when I tried to move it full of soil and plants by only one of the handles - my mistake. I really like these planters. It is a great way to grow plants if your soil isn't up to par. The 35 gal on up is a nice way to do your companion planting in the same planter. Very happy with my purchase!

I wanted to expand my garden without adding more raised beds so I tried the grow bags. The plants are doing good. I like the fact that I can move them around. The seeded bags are still sprouting when the raised beds have come up, so maybe better for plants. I chose to not have the bags touch the dirt. I opted for weed block then a shade cloth base so it looks neat. I have photos if there is a way to attach.

I have been using the brown root pouches for 3 years now. They work fairly well. My biggest complaints are that they dry quickly on top, but stay wet near the bottom. Often algae will form and it is not that attractive. You can use hydrogen peroxide or other products to clean. Besides that I love them for root growth and plant health. I will be using root pouches from now on. Cosmetic issues aside these are good products. After 3 years they still are holding up and should make 5 or 6 years before they need to be replaced.

This is a great bag for the money. Much better quality for less $$ than any bag offered at my local shop. This three gallon is a great intermediate holding bag. It also works well for the limited space gardener. Word to the wise.... the bigger the bag the bigger the harvest. Bigger roots equal bigger fruits....

These are the best quality bag I have seen. The price is better than my local shop charges for the cheap bags. The fabric is very tough and the stitching is well done. You can easily pick up a full bag with one handle and not worry about damage to the bag. The can be machine washed between grows if you need to. Keep up the good work and I keep recommending you new customers.

I am glad to find your biodegradable containers. They're much better than the normal black plastic containers which are difficult to handle and either get misshapen if they are thin and hard to handle if they are thick rigid. Either one does not have a good, large handle lip to carry. Yours carry very easily. There is enough plastic in the World already, so yours are a good welcome solution to the plastic problem. I am glad I bought 12 bundles of 10 bags each and will come back for more.

I have only been using these root pouches for 6 months, but I love them. I bought the 10 gal for veggies, and the 5 gal for tropical hibiscus. My hibiscus look great. I think the 10 gal are too small for tomatoes. By pruning the roots, the plants are also self pruned. The plants were much smaller, and so was the quantity. I am not unhappy with the outcome, but I think bigger pots will do better.

My tomatoes and cucumber plants are growing well in the root pouches. I bought them as I live in the woods, so I need to move these veggie plants to where they'll receive sun throughout most of the day. The handles make moving these"pots" easy. So far I'm pleased with them and will see how well they've worked by the end of the season.

There aren't a lot of ways to pre-grow the landscaping while we rent and look for our own that don't involve the property we're only renting. These root pouches are growing my fruit trees, bulbs and others. My sister's winter protections and my neighbor's as well. The price is almost as good as the product! 'Pretty genius," as my son-in-law says!

I find the bags easy to move around, and I am instructing my students to purchase the bags as an alternative to growing in the ground.

Our plants couldn't be more pleased!

I've said goodbye to container growing! I transplanted some of the grow bags plants and saw first hand the network of tiny roots afforded by the bags!

Using about 50 of these for potatoe growing and they really work! Bought the larger size and my potatoes are growing like crazy in these bags. Good price and good quality handles for my potatoe farming needs.

I like!

I have only had these fabric pots a couple of weeks and the only thing I can say at this point is they are very well made. I am very happy with them.

I would have gladly picked the 5 but my most recent order seemed to take a long time to get here--especially since I live in a state with GM warehouse. The pots however absolutely deserve a 5--the long lasting ones that I got are wonderfully sturdy and have great handles. I am a little curious about the pots that are intended to be planted in the ground. I would think that the recycled pop bottle plastic would take a very long time to break down...

I love using fabric pots. They have the advantages of other pots (fewer weeds, portability, less stooping down). Plus, you don't have to worry about over-watering because the drainage is excellent, and (even better) the plants never get root-bound. These Boxer Brown Root Pouches are supposed to have a long lifespan, which is also great. These pots are high-quality and durable, with strong stitching. The cloth is thick and strong, but still drains well. These are also a great price compared to other fabric pots.

I really like using the bags in my hybrid grow system. They work great. They are transportable, aesthetically pleasing. They seem a little small for their stated size but I guess the sizing is accurate. No problems so far. Would and have purchased again for garden use.

An amazing product. I've got peppers, greens and herbs growing in them in our greenhouse. They are holding up nicely and have been through the washer one time already with no quality issues. Will be buying more of these for winter crops.

These root pouches are very decent. I'm using them to grow on my patio this year they look very nice I like the 5 gallon and 15 Gallon pouches the best though we ordered 1 gallon pouches. So far so good.

We are moving, and I wanted to take my rose bushes with us. These bags have been great to use not only because they have handles that make them easy to move around, but because I do not have to replant the roses when I plant them in our new garden. I can plant the rose in the bag and over time it will decompose. It is great that these bags are made from plastic bottles and so through the recycle of the bottles we are afforded another product that is environmentally beneficial. Excellent work to the people who thought up this idea. Thank you.

Love, Love, Love These! Highly recommended.

I rarely write reviews, and I rarely find a product that impresses me as much as these pots have. This is my first time using root pouches. I had never even heard of them until recently. My tomato and herb plants had become root bound, spindly, and were turning brown in their plastic containers. I'm not exaggerating when I say that within 48-hours of transplanting the plants into these root pouches, they have become lush, spread out, and within a few days, are growing like crazy. I wish I could show you the before and after photos. I've told several friends about them and will definitely be buying more, for myself and to give away as gifts. They are convenient, easy to use, easy to fill, easy to carry and easy to arrange. They look good, and the price is great. You can't go wrong. I give them my highest recommendation. Thank you!

These fabric pots are the best addition to the garden, porch, patio and deck. These bags have brought me to a new level of production and quality. The discovery of these has changed my propagation plans and I have so much more room in the garden that I can raise those crops that take a lot of space and I have a new vegetables and herbs that I could never think of growing in the short season in Vermont.

These are nicely made pots. I am experimenting with raspberries. I had some I dug out of the ground and put in plastic pots, and they survived a very long harsh winter. I re-potted them in April into the cloth pots, put them in a high tunnel to jump start them growing while it was still cold outside. It's mid-May and they're leafed out and about to blossom, and I have set them outside. I used a combination of the Wondersoil bricks and peat, and will fertilize later in the season with composted manure. I predict good things because the plants look very happy.

Very happy

I had good luck growing potatoes last year in 2 black grow bags I had on hand, so I decided to stock up on 20 of these. I used a mixture of peat, coir, organic potting mix and composted chicken manure and used leftover potatoes from last season that were sitting in the fridge. It's nice to have handles, since I started them inside in a high tunnel greenhouse, and then moved them outside.

This year I decided to plant container gardens and purchased three different brands of fabric pots. The Root Pouch is by far my favorite (and they were the least expensive). The quality seems to be better than the other two brands. I've planted tomatoes, pineapple ground cherries and hot peppers. All my plants are doing very well. I highly recommend the Root Pouch for other gardeners.

These pots are the absolute best! They are extremely durable and so much better than the plastic pots I used to buy. This is the first year I've used them, but the plants roots LOVED them and when I was finished they were easy to rinse out and fold up for use next year. The price here is unbelievable. Local stores want $3+ for each gallon pot and they are the cheap ones that last less than 1 year unlike these high quality ones that last 5+.

I used the grey bags last year and they performed very well in the desert climate. So, this year I ordered the larger, longer-lasting bags. I plan to buy more. I grow tomatoes to sell at farmers markets.

Love these bags. They are thicker than any others I've purchased, hold their shape well and don't look like they're made of plastic. Though darker, the color and texture is sort of reminiscent of burlap. Tomatoes, peppers, snap beans, eggplant and melons all doing spectacularly well.

Looks great and got here quickly!

I wasn't sure what I would get, but I decided to take the chance and order one...based on mine, what you will get when you order this: 1. Relatively fast delivery 2. A paper tag that you definitely SHOULD remove before using (because most of us live in areas with fungus gnats that can and will bring mold to anything and everything capable of molding). 3. A plant pot that is definitely breathable, a little thicker than the really good reusable fabric grocery bags from the grocery store (which don't make particularly good plant pots) and will hold a nice shape even with dirt and a large, prickly tree in it. 4. They are cheaper than anywhere else I could find. A side note: 30 gallons is probably going to be hard to find a 'plant saucer' for - BUT they also have a square plant tray here for less than you'd pay in addition to the cost of the pot for less than you will pay for a plastic plant pot of similar size.

Fabulous pots-NOT mold

Despite Jason's background in mold, the growth on these pots is MOSS. Very common when using soil for planting. It's caused by the micro organisms in most soil and is actually beneficial....since soil is alive. I've been gardening for 35+ yrs. for pleasure and for a business. Even though bags may be "thin" in areas..it does no affect their performance. I've used both the grey and brown...the black are thin and good as pot liners only.

Purchased 7 gal pots that were supposed to be the best quality. Stitching was poor. There was no uniform thickness, you could read a newspaper through some areas. No response from store from my email. Cheap for a reason. Gardeners beware.

Responce TO Mega's Response Re:Mold on Root Pouc

My response to Megastores response to MOLD ON POUCHES: I appreciate your response to my review about the mold that is growing on the outside of the root pouches I purchased, but I felt the need to clarify and respond. Ironically I've worked in the mold remediation industry for over 10 years and am quite familiar with what mold looks like....and the mold growing on the outside of the pouch is mold 100%. It started on what was left of the paper tag after I ripped off what I could. There was still some paper tag stuck inside the sewing seam that can't be removed from the stitching of the pouch. Once that paper got wet from watering, the mold started to grow on the paper then spread to 1/3 of the pouch (inside and out). It's not moss...its brown colored mold! I cleaned every pot by spraying each mold colony with H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) on the mold colonies and it did take care of it initially....but a week later it returned. Again, the pouch quality and price are excellent .....not sure what to do about the mold at this point? MY CONSUMER ADVICE: STOP USING PAPER TAGS AND THE MOLD WONT START IN THE FIRST PLACE. P.S. I Love Greenhouse megastore! they've been great to order from and have the best prices on the web:)

I'm really on the fence with these root pouches. They're made of good quality materials, they are cheap, but I'm getting significant patches of mold and fungus around the outside of half of my pots (50 out of 100). They're spaced out with 3-4" between them so there's lots of air movement around them. I've been growing for years so it's not like i'm overwatering or something. I want to like these pots but I'm not sure what to think considering all the mold?! I may have to throw them all out
Greenhouse Megastore

The green that you are seeing on the pots is not a mold or fungus, but is in fact a moss. This is seen on most fabric pots, usually around the bottom third of the container where the moisture is concentrated. A fabric pot is a breathing membrane allowing air and moisture to pass through. This, coupled with the soil and nutrients from inside the pot seeping into the fabric, can cause discoloration and/or moss. This is harmless and can be removed with a garden hose. Unlike mold or fungus lack of air movement does not inhibit the growth of moss. In fact moss prefers an airy, damp growing environment. Also unlike mold or fungus, moss is easily removed without chemicals. If you wish to remove it for appearances... sharp spray of water will do the trick.

I like the bags, much easier to move around, however, when watering it did not "spread" evenly, found a lot of dry spots after plenty of water, seems it goes out the sides quicker than not. To rectify this, I lined them w/bubble wrap around the sides, this made a HUGE difference.

My tomato, pepper, and egplant seedlings grew nicely in the one-gallon root pouches. The pouches are very thick and durable. The root structures of the plants looked great with lots of short roots. There were no real long roots winding around the pot. These are such high quality and low cost that I stopped making my own out of landscape cloth. The one negative is plants are a bit hard to get out of the fabric pots.

I was planning on fabricating some hanging fabric containers to make up a strawberry wall, when I saw the brown fabric pot description. Perfect, plus I did not have to start doing any sewing. My original intent was to tie off the pots by their handles. The item description was somewhat ambiguous in this regard, I found (1 gal pots have no handles). But the seams are nice and strong. Folding them over the wire frame (concrete reinforcing, very rigid), and clipping with a strong paper clip, worked just fine. The berries are growing happily. These pots are supposed to last years; time will tell.

I really like these pots I ordered the 10 Gallon and they work great. My only issue with them is I think the sewing job could be better. I have other types of fabric pots and you can tell that they are sewn much better. But I have yet to have a problem because of that yet so good product so far.

My plants took off in these things. They are half the price of almost any other fabric pot, last longer, and work incredibly well. I plan to do an entire vegetable garden in larger Root Pounces this summer.
