Root Pouches for Americans

Folks in the USA can also pick up Root Pouches through our Amazon Influencer page**
where you’ll also find other Gardening & Aquaponic gear I use or recommend.


The falling Aussie dollar & lack of room for storage of stock has meant that I will no longer sell Root Pouches.
I will look at stocking them again in the future once these situations change.
I still think they're a fantastic product & will continue to use them myself here in the patch.
I would like to thank you all for your patronage over the past few years & wish you all the best in your gardening adventures. 🌱🍅🥦👍

The good news is that you can still buy Root Pouches here in Australia from Up On The Rooftop in Sydney
Wendy also sells ollas for those looking at a great way to irrigate their larger pouches.

Cheers & happy growing,

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.

Growing Dwarf Trees in Root Pouches​

Root Pouches are fantastic to grow many varieties of dwarf fruiting trees in, especially if you live in a rental property. 

The 95L or 113L pouches are good for dwarf trees that are kept around 1.5 - 2 meters in height. 

If you're going to let them grow taller than 2 meters I recommend you go with the 170L or larger, especially if they will be in a position where they will be blown about by strong winds. The larger base will help to act as ballast through storms.

Pouches planted out with trees, in particular, are require to be placed on a firm surface to prevent the tap roots growing through into the soil below. 
A concrete paver, large plastic tray or even a circular section of builders plastic placed under the pouch would prevent the roots from establishing themselves in the soil.
