Heavy, Duty Thickened, Nonwoven Fabric Pots with Strap Handles

5, 6 and 10 Gallon.

Grow Bags, expertly crafted with thickened, nonwoven fabric and featuring reinforced, sturdy handle straps for easy lifting and moving. The breathable fabric ensures optimal aeration for plant roots, promoting healthier root structures and nutrient absorption. In addition, grow bags offer excellent drainage, preventing over-watering and maintaining ideal soil moisture. Perfect for outdoor, patio, or indoor growing, these bags work well with traditional soil or soil mixes. When your plant outgrows the bag, transfer it to a larger pot, as plants never become root bound. Durable, double-stitched handles make transportation effortless. Experience the benefits of these versatile, reusable Grow Bags!


5 to 10-gallon pots are the most common grow bag sizes as they will grow most garden vegetables either as a single plant or a large plant with other smaller plants planted with them. The larger the bag, the more you can plant in a single bag. Grow bags will need daily watering at a minimum or set into a water reservoir.

Eco-Friendly Biodegradable Plant Bags: The Ultimate Solution for Effortless Transplanting and Improved Plant Survival

Upgrade your gardening experience with our biodegradable non-woven fabric plant bags, designed with the environment in mind. These eco-friendly bags promote a sustainable gardening approach while delivering exceptional results.

With seedling bags, your plants will never become root bound. 

Seedling bags don’t have to be removed to plant. However, I recommend removing or cutting down the sides to allow the roots to spread faster. 

Featuring excellent air and water permeability, our plant bags ensure optimal nutrient and moisture penetration, promoting healthy root development and overall plant growth. So say goodbye to root decay and entanglement with this innovative solution.

These biodegradable plant bags are versatile and efficient for growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers. They can also serve as protective fruit covers, offering waterproof and bird-proof qualities to safeguard your precious harvest.

Experience the high seedling survival rate, rapid growth, and thriving plants our biodegradable plant bags provide. Widely used in agriculture, forestry, and horticulture, these bags are your key to a successful and eco-conscious gardening experience.
