After finding out about fabric grow bags through other fellow vegetable gardeners, I tried them for myself and was blown away with the result. I’ve grown the healthiest, most vigorous tomatoes and potatoes in these sturdy, felt-like pots, thanks to their superior drainage and ability to air-prune. They can grow ANY vegetable or favorite plant! Even still, I knew that these plain black grow bags could be improved upon-DESIGN!
I’ve taken the phenomenon one step further by creating an array of bright, fun and personalized designs for these hip grow bags. I use ECO Felt, made from 100% post-consumer recycled bottles, a soft fabric that is non-toxic, sustainable, fade-resistant and will not stain. Thanks to my new eco-friendly garden designs, these fabric pots become a highlight of your garden. Bountiful Backyard’s custom designed bags are available in my Etsy shop!
The felt-like, lightweight fabric pot has rigidity to hold its shape, may be stored folded flat and is reusable. The black fabric quickly warms up early season soil enabling plants to get off to a quicker start. Yet the same fabric, due to its porous nature, allows heat to escape from the container through evaporative cooling during the summer’s hottest days. Roots are never soggy like in traditional pots since the water is allowed to drain out of the bag. These containers have the unique ability to air-prune, which leads to a strong, healthy root structure.
