Customer Reviews for Root Pouch Degradable Pots
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.
I'm using these 10 gallon RP10H3 for tomatoes and they are working out great. I've moved the filled bags a few times without issue and it appears they'll easily last multiple seasons. I also ordered and received the RPP10, the non-degradable grow bag, for comparison and while the material is of better quality and the top edge seamed, these are a far better value if one needs a larger quantity and doesn't care about aesthetics.
10 gallon root Pouch
recycled, sturdy, well constructed and should last more than 5 years if cared for properly.
Durable grow bags
Works well in combination with weed cover ground fabric...still durable after several years ...I've purchased more than 60 of them these past few years!
These pots are a great value and offer an affordable way to provide environmentally friendly pots to my customers. Also easier to transport and store.
Great price and good product.
Used in elevated planter, best garden ever!
I built elevated redwood planters from reclaimed redwood deck, then used ten gallon root bags inside planters. Best garden ever!
Pots to start Christmas trees
My daughter and I planted Canaan fir trees into the one gallon pouches this spring with the idea of planting them out into our Christmas trees late summer/early fall. The trees look absolutely fantastic and I am optimistic about the survivability of our trees.
These bags are high quality
I wasn't to sure about getting grow bags. But I am very happy I did these are very high quality and are durable. I would suggest that you find a tray to but the bags in. It will aid in watering the plants via capillary action
Handy useful product, great price
Like the versatility - don't have to commit to a hardscaped rasied bed. In northern New England they help keep tomatoes and sweet potatoes warm. And then you can just dump the potatoes out! Do need to remember to water more frequently and you can't drag them by the handles when they're full - they break/come unstitched. Best price on the fabric pots I've found anywhere.
Root pouch RP7H3
Loved this product it's compact light weight ,keeps roots cool in warm weather, no over watering or rain drowning and air prunes the roots
so you avoid circle root.
The larger sizes are great for dwarf fruit trees and large shrubs.
Trying out the smallest ones
I bought the 1 gal. pouches to start dahlia tubers. The flexibility makes them efficient, since they adjust around the stiff tubers. I shared some with friends who are more serious gardeners, and will report back with their opinions; they certainly seem to be a great alternative to stacks of plastic!
15 Gallon Root ouches
This is my first time using these pouches. They have been something I wanted to try for early vegetables and I am so glad I gave them a try. Pouches are well made and the squash I transplanted has double in size I less than a week. Better for container gardens than the plastic pots and you can always put them in baskets for a better look.
First time using this product, it measures up so far.
prices were very reasonable, and delivery of products were very timely.highly recommend any of these products.... Thanks, will be ordering again..
I use this for my hot peppers and they loving it...its cheap and space saver at the same time!
Satisfied with pouch pots
These pots are working great so far. I've used other more expensive fabric pots and for the money, these are great. The only draw back I can see is you have to use both hands to pick them up compared to small plastic pots that I can pick up with one hand.
We used the 3 gallon pouches on 90 David Austin bareroot roses in April and they worked great and are bigger then the dimensions claim because they are more flexible then a plastic pot. On the con side they do dry out faster then plastic pots because they are so breathable. I have not planted the roses yet in the gardens so I can't testify to how well the rose will do compared to growing them in plastic pots. Will report later on my results.
Root pouches...so far,so good
I got these to start a bunch of little tree whips. The great environmental factors convinced me to buy vs.using odds and ends around the farm. So far, they are all they claim, very tough in an above ground nursery situation with excellent drainage. I won't be putting them on the ground until this fall or next spring so final appraisal still to come.
Just what i was looking for.
I am very satisfied with this product, recommend it to anyone that is using a similar pot.
Biodegradable is best
I bought these pouches for bare-root trees. The bags are tough, you would never think they are biodegradable. They work perfect.
I like 'em
So much easier to haul dirt, compost and plants around. I'll know better next year how well plants grow in them I'll have potatoes to harvest in about 6 wks...eager. I'm using soaker hoses suspended above them.
The root pouches work very well. I use them for vegetables tomatoes, potatoes, squash and peppers. They retain water well and can be moved to the best location for your plants. I do like the handles. Your pricing is very good too. Thanks.
Root Pouch Degradable Pots
So far I really like the Root Pouch pots. They are lightweight, and the attached handles make them easy to move, especially by two people. And of course, the fact that the pot breathes makes for healthier root systems. I'll be interested in seeing how long they hold up since this is my first purchase.
I really like these. They do require a lot of water but I will be ordering some more.
Root Pouch Root maker pots
I purchased 1000 root pouches as a start for my bonsai business in ... central Florida. I wanted something that could stay in a training pot long term without getting circling roots or having a shelf of moisture on the bottom of the pot where root rot occurs in regular pots after a few years due to our heavy daily rain. After hearing about the "air" pruning of root pouches to stop circling roots and increase fine feeder roots for increased nutrient uptake thereby increasing growth in general,I decided to give it a try. The fact that they had excellent drainage with a porous material used as the wall and floor of the pot was a bonus also. Well, that sold me to try 1000 pots. I also have hundreds of pots of 10 gal regular plastic pots, so this also was a great way to experiment to see if the product really worked. I thought this was a great way to see and compare growth speed and root development differences between the two I would get. I only have had my 200 cypress (along with 800 other varieties).
Starting vegtablesfor garden
Have a small greenhouse and started my squash and cucumbers in them. They grew wonderful and will be a month ahead when I put them out in the garden.
Root pouches excellent choice for school gardening projects
I am a parent volunteer for our elementary school 4-H Junior Master Gardener program. One of our gardening projects this past year involved comparing and contrasting white potatoes grown either horizontally or vertically. In researching our receptacle options for our above ground vertical potato garden, we decided upon the 25 gal root pouch. It has proven to be perfect for the job. Root Pouches come in a variety of sizes with the 25 gal option seeming to be the perfect size for an above ground container-type potato garden. The handles make the "pot" easy to relocate if need be, and the fabric lends itself to proper water retention/drainage. Once ready to harvest, the bag lends itself to easy emptying and potato location. The many ecological advantages of the Root Pouch provide wonderful talking-points to discuss reduce/reuse/recycle opportunities with elementary aged children. Here they can actually see and use a product made from bottles similar to ones that they have been recycling.
These were great !
Used them here in Florida. Our plastic pots dried out quicklly and these held the moisture quite well. Healthier plants. Will definitely use them again next year. The 5 lb. size worked best for my vegetables ..the grey medium thickness with handles.
great, but needs tweaking
Great design and well built. I'd add the ability to somehow close the top for customer transportation. If they are placed on their sides, dirt and debris escaping and exposing plant roots will be and was an issue. We had to sew the tops closed to allow for transportation.
works real good
I have planted potatoes in the 3 gallon root pouch. The potatoes are growing well and the pouch was easy to use and is very light weight and moveable. The pouches will allow me to grow many vegetables this year. They retain water better than my raised bed.
Root Pouch Degradable Pots
We were very pleased with the pots and wished we had ordered more. The handles make them very easy to use and we will test actually putting them in the ground this Fall. Very exciting possibilities.
Excellent for bare root trees
I used to have to wait for roots to develope before I could resell because of the dirt falling off the roots now the customer just plants the whole pot. It also keeps the roots moist and cooler because the pot can breath unlike the plastic pots. I LIKE!!!!
Light weight and very easy to use and handle. They take very little space to store before using.
I am a home gardener with very little time for my yard. I start a few plants early on my porch. I like these pouches much better than the ordinary pots that I usually use.
Looks like a Winner
I ordered these for the first time in early spring 2012. I'm using 3 of the 15 gallon pouches for tomato plants. So far everything looks great. Plan to use the other pouches for some young shrubs and perennials until I get my other garden beds constructed. I might rate them 5 stars given more time using them.
