What is the difference of Root Pouch b&b fabric vs traditional burlap?

Burlap has been around since the 17thcentury and is still an adequate economical way to wrap a root ball for very short periods of time providing great care is given to watering and protection from the elements.

Our Root Pouch b&b fabric wraps act as a protective membrane around the root ball and are strong enough to last well into the next season. It is breathable, absorbent and will allow water to reach the root ball and not shed off as with burlap. It will protect the root ball from heat exposure, direct sun damage to root tips and even protect the roots from winter cold.

What is the Root Pouch b&b fabric?

Root Pouch has developed a strong lightweight 150g/m2 natural fiber blend as a root wrap for trees and shrubs. It’s advantages are especially noticed after trees are being held longer than 3-4 months. Growers typically are anticipating the trees will be purchased and transplanted, but when this is not the case, then the dug tree can live a long and healthy life in the Root Pouch b&b fabric.

What are the benefits of using the Root Pouch b&b fabric?

Normally field digging is limited to spring and fall, during this time growers face the challenge of anticipating which and how many units they should dig and project how many will sell. Always trying to project sales any unsold dug trees have to go through summer heat or winter cold and this makes holding the trees more than just difficult.

An advantage to this fabric versus burlap is watering the trees. Overheads work great with this fabric, water that hits the outside of burlap sheds off whereas the natural fibers in the fabric absorb the water allowing it to reach the root ball.

Growers can now with confidence harvest trees, ball and Root Pouch them knowing that with proper maintenance they can be held in a healthy viable condition for seasons not just months.

FAQ

  • Is FDA approval required at this time for Grow Bags, Nursery Pots, or any Horticultural containers?

    Short answer is no not at this time. Our understanding is that at this time the federal government does not view growing Cannabis as a federally legalized act and has not yet required that they meet FDA standards test 21 CFR 177.1630 (contact with food, drugs, biologics and cosmetics).

    The FDA requirements are of course inevitable since it is important that container manufacturers create safe non-toxic containers for the use of growing plants that will be consumed by humans.

    We at Root Pouch believe it is important to our customers that our containers have been tested and have passed safety test for contact with food. We have decided not to wait until it is required and have taken it upon ourselves to ensure that the containers we produce are free of harmful contaminants that my effect the quality and safety of the plants grown in them.

    All our grow bags have undergone rigorous testing by BACL (Global testing and certification lab) in accordance with FDA contact test 21 CFR 177.1630
