FABRIC GARDEN PLANTING POTS
In the previous Spring/Summer seasons, we found a way to incorporate material Plant Bags into our gardening routine to help keep the plants healthy and hydrated in between jobs and prior to going in the ground. We believe in using practical and efficient tools. These Plant Bags have allowed the process of removing, transplanting and storing plants to be a lot easier, whilst preserving the life of the plant.
The bags are made of a preamble, breathable fabric with a number of benefits, coming in a variety of sizes to accommodate different kinds/sizes of plants. The sizes we currently use are the 5 gallon, 10 gallon and 15 gallon.
Improve Your Routine and Stock Common Garden Plants
For other landscaping companies or even independent gardeners, being able to store your own selection of plants that are commonly used by clients is ideal. The plant bags are versatile and space efficient, and are great for transporting in between locations. If you’re interested, you can buy in bulk and get your logo screen printed on them.
Depending on the type of plant, it may be overly thirsty for a drink of water while other plants may prefer not to be in standing water. If a plant is left in standing water, it can develop mold or fungus. To avoid that, we recommend using the plant bags because of it’s breathable material, it allows the water to drain with ease, leaving the soil moist enough to keep it thoroughly hydrated without drowning the roots and thus potentially killing the plant.

During the hot summer months, any plant that is sitting in a plastic or ceramic pot is likely to retain a lot of heat from the sun, and while those plant pots may seem like the best option, it can put your plants at risk. A good majority of plants are sensitive to temperature change and pots that aren’t made from a breathable material can become sort of like a mini-oven, which can overheat the plants roots from the inside, causing the plant to eventually wilt and die.
Whether the plants are in the plant bags for a short or long period of time, the material of the bag won’t retain heat the same way traditional pots do. In the material bags, it allows for good air circulation, cooling down the soil and letting the heat escape from every angle, this way the plant will not be exposed to excessive heat.
Steps of Transplanting/Preventing Shock
Before transplanting any of your plants, it’s important to be aware of the potential damage you could cause in the process. A common reason plants can or may go into shock while being transplanted is due to the various changes it is undergoing. Changing soil to drastic temperature changes, over or underexposed to direct sunlight and the amount of water it has are all potential causes. To ensure this doesn’t happen, there’s a few key steps you can take!
First step is to give the plant you’re moving a good drink of water ahead of time. You could this the day before or even as early as possible on the day of transplanting, allowing the soil to soften and water to soak into the roots. The whole plant should be well-hydrated when it’s comes time to transplant it. We recommend doing this during the cooler evening hours, that way the plant can adjust overnight to its new home before being exposed to daylight and heat.
Be sure to give it a little more water before you dig to remove it, the goal is to make sure the soil around the roots adheres to the them so they won’t be exposed to any drying winds. Place the plant into the bag and at the bottom of the plant bag, make sure to put some good rich soil at the bottom of the outdoor garden pot.
Lastly, fill the bag with more soil to cover the roots and water it once more. If it’s a hotter day when you’re doing the transplant, the water can evaporate a lot quicker so keep in mind, it’s best to try and do this in cooler temperatures or later in the day.
After Using Garden Planting Pots to Transplant Flowers
For the next couple weeks after the transplant, make sure to check on it daily. Check the soil a few inches below the surface for dryness because it may need to be watered more often until it has settled into its new home. Consider the type of weather and the type of plant it is as well: the larger the plant, the more water it’ll need. You’ll also want to keep it out of direct sunlight for the next couple days, as it’ll dry it out much faster that way.
