Less expensive and friendlier to the environment than standard nursery pots!

Do you want a nursery pot that is cheaper than the standard plastic pot - as low as 35 cents per pot? Do you worry about the environmental impact of those plastic pots? If you answered yes to either of these questions, Root Pouches are the perfect choice!


Every year, millions of plastic pots find their way into landfills. The petroleum and other fossil fuels used to create these pots, along with their inability to break down, result in a negative impact on our environment. Root Pouch uses its award-winning technology to convert a mixture of recycled natural fibers and recycled bottles into their patented grow bags. These materials, otherwise destined for our landfills, see a second life as a lightweight, breathable geotextile. Root Pouch then uses this textile to create plant pots that degrade (break down) once you plant them in the ground.

These fabric pots are wonderful for plants. They are breathable, so roots stay cool in summer and do not suffocate from over-watering. The fabric material allows for water permeation, so there is sufficient drainage without the need for holes in the pot. This product is perfect for in-ground as well as above ground growing. The uses are endless! Since they are made from flexible fabric, they do not chip or break like standard pots. You no longer have to clean up broken shards as you do with clay pots.

Please call for custom logo printing. Available in both handle and no handle options. Sold by the bundle.

Exceeded expectations

Alan from VT wrote (April 16, 2017):

The 5 gallon Root Pouches with handles were shipped quickly and arrived quickly. The material is much sturdier than I thought it would be and is very securely sewn. I filled one with damp potting soil mixed with granite grit and carried it around. There does not seem to be any worrisome stress on the pouch or the handles. I shopped around and could not find a better deal anywhere, even at the place where things are usually cheaper. It seems that Leonard's is a place that relies on sales to businesses that cannot afford to deal with non-competitive prices, less than professional grade products or shoddy customer service. I appreciate the fact that homeowners like me can also do business with them on those same terms.

Bags are small

5 gallon bags are same size as 3 gallon bags I purchased from another supplier.

5 gallon root pouch

maryf from NY wrote (June 15, 2016):

I had seen these pots being used at a community garden. I liked the eco-friendliness of the product and the convenience of the handles as I am an "urban gardener" with limited sunlight and need to move plants around. I could not find the pots sold at any gardening store near me and was very pleased with A.M. Leonard's selection, price and service.

5 gallon Root Pouches

Lightweight and easy to fill and move. My plants are doing very well in them. They hold the moisture so I am not watering all the time.

a BEST BUY

LIn from TN wrote (June 14, 2016):

They are already filled with saplings that I ordered and just can't dig into the ground yet as the clay needs tons of admendments.

They are working out PERFECTLY! I cannot wait to buy more for next year so I can have a bigger garden variety. I started small this year.

So much better than pots!!!

Laurie from Commack, NY from NY wrote (June 13, 2016):

I bought them because it is better to have your vegetables grow with root pruning; the difference in this year's tomato plants is amazing!

5 Stars

Awesome pots and excellent service!

Whitney Butler from CA wrote (June 13, 2016):

AM Leonard had originally listed these pouches on Amazon. I accidentally ordered too many. I was able to contact you guys and you were able to take care of it quickly without confusion. And since these pots are no longer listed on Amazon I buy them directly from your website now.
