Urban gardening aka: gardening in raised beds, planters, pots, etc has a few challenges. Here are a few reasons why growing in fabric bags is the ideal choice:
#1 Drainage - plants growing in plastic or metals can overheat your root systems. Roots do more than just anchor a plant. If your roots are not healthy your plants will lack the ability to take in nutrient.
#2 Moisture - plants growing in wood or clay planters typically suffer from drought stress as these materials absorb the water and steal the moisture the plants need.
#3 Aeration - the fabric allows air flow to the roots and also provides proper drainage. I have actually seen plants that have died from drowning because the drainage holes in their pots were inadequate.
#4 Soil Health - plants grown in a properly drained and aerated environment strive. This environment is essential in growing and maintaining a living soil, the basis of organic gardening. Adding organic matter to your fabric pots will feed your microbes and they will enjoy their perfect environment allowing nutrients to be released and larger root systems to be formed.
#4 Portability - the bags are lightweight and heavy duty and you can move them around easily. Let's say you need less or more sun as Spring changes to Summer...no worries just use the durable handles that will NOT tear.
#5 Space saving - at the end of the season your pots can be emptied (either into a soil storage bag or even composted) and the bags can be stored flat until the following season. If you choose you can even leave them out over the winter months and have no worries about them breaking and cracking during soil heaving and frost.
#6 Washable - they are able to be hand washed many times to keep them looking brand new.
