Growers/Gardeners often choose to grow in containers when space for a traditional soil garden is limited or has undesirable traits like little sun or poor soil. Containers also offer an alternative food source for the health and environmentally conscious urbanite with access to a sunny balcony or apartment rooftop. Either way when space is limited and your garden needs to be ‘contained’ it is important to remember that just because space is limited doesn’t mean that your growing options have to be. Root Pouch fabric containers are perfect for the urban/ home grower.

Use the 5, 7 or 10 gallon pouches; choice of size is
determined by the eventual desired size of the plant.
Traditional tomato cages fit comfortably inside the 5 gallon
pouches; plants grown in the larger sizes may requireaddition supports.

Choose dwarf berry varieties that are bred for container
culture. For temperate environments it’s recommended
to bring perennials that have a dormancy period through
winter inside or into a greenhouse.

Start by planting about half way up from the bottom of
the pouch. As the plant grows continue to fill up the pouch
with a loose soil-mix, fluffy compost or even straw to allow
the spuds to develop in a non-compacted environment.
This approach can also be used when growing leeks.

TIPS

For best results, when growing fruits or vegetables in containers there is an inherent need to use fertilizer. Both synthetic and organic forms of fertilization can be used, so the choice is in the grower’s hands. For plant nutrient guidance, consult your local garden center or greenhouse employee. It is suggested to wash the Root Pouch in-between uses, with earth friendly soaps allowing the pouch to air dry.

We also suggest using certified organic potting mix in your plantings.

Happy Gardening.
