Fabric planters are best used for establishing strong and fibrous roots. This makes them a popular choice for growing crops as the technology used to grow plants in fabric planters means they won’t need regular root pruning.
Aside from their reputation for healthy root growth, fabric planters are great for the environmentally conscious as they have a much smaller environmental impact than their plastic counterparts.
Fabric planters are lightweight, durable and reusable which makes them easy to use and maintain for many years to come.
You can grow almost anything you like in a fabric planter, just as you would any other kind of garden planter. They’re particularly popular for vegetable crops as the success of these plants relies so heavily on developing healthy roots.
Fabric pots are hardier than you may think. A fabric planter can last anywhere from 3 to 5 years depending on the conditions that they’re kept in. They last best in dry, indoor structures such as greenhouses that keep them from harsh conditions which can cause deterioration.
Proper care and maintenance such as running the fabric planters through the washing machine can help to extend the lifespan. Discover even more planter materials in our full collection of garden planters here at Primrose.
