The worlds most prominent tree growers use Root Pouch containers

This is exactly what we are looking for. Strong lateral dense fibrous roots

At Root Pouch, our focus is all about “The Roots” we know that Circling / Girdling roots are quite common from plastic pots, we also know this problem cannot correct itself once the tree is planted in the landscape.

Girdling roots that wrap around the trunk of a tree weakens the tree by restricting the flow of water and nutrients, leading to the decline of the health of the tree.The difference in a healthy root is a tree struggling for years or thriving for decades!

ONLY Root Pouch fabric containers have a blend of natural fibers

EXPLANATIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS

Natural Fiber Blends ( Semi-Degradable Fabrics )

—In-ground growing containers—

Pros

  • Root zone temperature protection
  • Hydrophilic properties
  • Absorbs water from surrounding soil
  • Acts as a nurturing membrane while creating a controlled dense fibrous root structure
  • Offers permeability plus they are breathable
  • East to ship, direct-from-field.

Cons

  • Depending on the degradability timing limitations
  • Natural fibers will start to degrade and lose tinsel strength.

—Above Ground (Container Yard) Growing—

Pros

  • Superb evenly distributed moister control throughout the pot
  • Evenly diffuses temperature differences while providing insulation.
  • Attracts and absorbs water from the sides from sprinklers and rain
  • Ships easily.

Cons

  • Depending on the percentage of natural fibers and thickness
  • Tinsel strength may be a factor.

100% PETE (no natural fibers blended into the fabric)

made of recycled plastic water bottles

—Above Ground (Container Yard) Growing—

Pros

  • Extremely strong, high tinsel strength, 260 g/m2 to 300 g/m2 fabrics available
  • Prevents root circling
  • Breathable
  • Provides protection from extreme temperature fluctuations
  • Prevents root damage from direct sunlight
  • Easy to handle
  • Ships easily.

Cons

  • Not recommended for in-ground growing.
  • Man-made fibers have more of a hydrophobic property to them and do not draw water toward them as natural fibers do.
  • If a fabric does not contain natural fibers we suggest growers use a drip system for in-ground growing.

Overall Pros

  • All Root Pouch PETE is derived from recycled plastic water bottles.
  • No new raw petroleum or new fossil fuels are used.
  • All PETE is BPA free and inert (chemically inactive)
