Fabric Pot Information
What makes yours different?
The short answer? Quality. We have taken the time to research the materials used by our competition and have chosen to use a far superior fabric that is made specifically for us in the USA. Then our NorCal and Mexico friends assemble our pots with USA made material for lasting quality.
The majority of the fabric pots on the market are mass produced in China with low quality fabric and do not last. We sew our bottom seams on the outside to help them last longer, and most of our pots and beds have a triple hem along the top for extra strength. (Classic fabric pots 30 gal and up are triple-hemmed. Fabric raised beds are all triple-hemmed.)
How long will they last?
Our Manufacturer Warranty is 90 days, however we expect them to last between 3-5 years. It depends on how much direct sunlight they receive, how you store/clean them, and how you grow in them. Often, they will last longer than that! We recommend washing your fabric pots in between cycles if you use a lot of nutrients and amendments.
What kind of fabric do you use?
Our fabric is a nonwoven geotextile polypropylene made especially for us from a manufacturer in the USA. It is military grade UV-resistant, chemically stable, and BPA free! It resists breakdown and rot and won’t leach any chemicals into your media. Plus, you can just throw it in the washing machine!
Are they safe for the environment?
Our material is chemically stable, inert, and BPA-free, and therefore safe. It will not leach anything into the soil or the environment.
While the material we use is not recyclable, we strive to help by making our products last as long as possible.
How does drainage work? Does it matter what surface they are on?
Our Classic Fabric Pots & Beds are made from a breathable fabric that drain and dry from all sides. They’re ideal for growing outdoors in humid settings or hydroponic gardening, or if you feed your plant directly instead of the soil. If you aren’t growing in these conditions, you may experience uneven drainage and dry pockets, and your plants may require more frequent watering. For growing in dryer climates and greenhouses, consider Living Soil Fabric Pots & Beds. With a waterproof liner and bottom aeration strip, Living Soil Fabric Pots & Beds recreate the top-down drying pattern that is found in nature. This ensures optimum moisture retention, eliminates dry pockets, and helps to cultivate essential microbes. This results in the soil remaining moist for a longer period of time. To learn more, check out this article.
We recommend trays if you are worried about the surface the pots/beds are on, or worried about the runoff.
Are they biodegradable? Can I bury them?
Our products are not biodegradable. Our current pots and beds are intended to be very long-lasting above ground containers.
You can bury our pots, but they will not deteriorate. This type of geotexile fabric was originally created for plumbing use. Being underground will not negatively affect anything.
How do they affect animals or pests?
Our strong fabric can sometimes act as a barrier to pests or animals, but we suggest taking other measures to protect your plants.
Why are some beds smaller than the size listed?
We’ve reduced the footprint of our smaller beds (4×8 and below) standard 4×4 and 4×8 raised beds so they can fit into most trays and grow tents.
2×4 = 22” x 46” x 18”
3×3 = 33” x 33” x 18”
3×6 = 33” x 70” x 18”
4×4 = 46″ x 46″ x 18″
4×8 = 46″ x 94″ x 18″
Using Fabric Pots
How do I clean my fabric pots? Can I wash them?
Yes! Our fabric pots can be cleaned in the washing machine and air dried. Do not put them in the dryer. Learn more about washing your fabric pots here.
Is it safe to use our pots on a wooden deck?
Yes, but be proactive. The bottom of the fabric pot will put moisture into the wood and cause rot. We suggest using a plastic or ceramic dish underneath to collect runoff water.
Can I move my fabric pot if the sun pattern changes?
Why yes! For any reason you have to move your plant, our pots are lightweight and designed to be free to pick up and move to a new location. We recommend doing so before a watering so the pot is at its lightest.
Is it bad if the roots underneath grow into the ground?
It is personal preference. Our pots are not designed for this, but if it happens and is not a problem for you, it WILL benefit the plant by adding new area for your roots to explore.
What is your return policy and warranty?
We are happy to offer you a 21 day satisfaction guarantee, and we will accept the return of unused product back for a refund during that time. We are also happy to provide you with a 90-day manufacturer’s warranty. If you find any defects with your pots, contact us, and we will make it right. Please note, shipping is non-refundable and the customer must pay for return shipping. Also, a 10% restocking fee will be applied for all returned products. Our custom orders have different rules. All the details are summed up for you in our Terms and Conditions.
Are you hiring?
