Root Pouch has created a range of sustainable gardening products made from a mix of recycled water bottles and natural fibres. Not one drop of new oil, petroleum or fossil fuel is used in their creation.
Benefits Of Growing In Root Pouches
Root pouches have many advantages over the traditional plastic post with their ability to reduce root circling (known as being “root bound”) being a major one.
They do this through the processes of air pruning and root entrapment. Fine feeder roots will either become entangled in the fabric and die off or penetrate the fabric where they encounter air and meet the same fate. This stimulates the plant to create new feeder roots that are generally better at taking up nutrients & water creating a healthier root mass & plant than old ones.
