Product overview

Ditch single-use plastic planter bags & gain the ability to check on your mini potato or carrot harvests through side windows- no more digging through deep soil.

These felt-like, sustainable fabric grow bags are reusable & allow for great aeration so your plants will not suffer from heat build-up or overwatering. Made with porous fabric that air-prunes plant roots, resulting in a robust and healthy root system.

Traditional pots block 80% of air ventilation leading to weaker and circled root systems. With the combination of air root pruning creating a better root structure and the aeration of the root zone, your plants can reach their full potential.

These reusable bags are made from a double layer felt fabric that is non-woven and BPA free. This felt provides a safe growing medium that is PH neutral, and non-reactive.

Getting started

Add 10cm of garden mix to the grow bag and place 5 sprouted seed potatoes on top (sprouts should point up). Cover with around 5cm of soil and water generously. As the sprouts appear through the top soil, keep covering with garden mix until you reach you top. Make sure to keep your grow bag in a sheltered sunny spot and water regularly to ensure the grow bag does not dry out (try not to get the foliage wet). When it's time to harvest your potato crop, round up the kids, lift up the grow bag flap and put them to work!

Potato Bag

Great quality for the price

Niki Morrison Auckland
Potato Bag

Received in good order. Have not used yet as is late autumn so will have to be patient until spring

Barry Hawera
Disappointing so far

I agree with the previous review about the design aspect of the viewing flap. I set up 4 bags with 3 potato varieties, in what I felt was both a sunny and sheltered spot. Initial sprouting and growth was great, just as people said. However a hot, dry summer and unable to keep them adequately watered (I have a badly broken arm) meant that when we emptied the first 2 bags the results were disappointing with only enough spuds (small ones) for a couple of meals for two. I know I would have done better growing them in the ground, and a lot cheaper considering the cost of the bags and vegetable mix. I am hoping the other 2 bags in a more open aspect where they might have received some rainfall, do better.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Design aspect

A design idea would be to have the velcro flap opening from the top rather than the bottom as I found any lose dirt falls out. Initially good, but one bag has ripped at the handle area.

Chrissy Bay of Plenty
Great product

potato bags

Are of good quality and so far so good with growing the potatoes. We're looking forward to the harvest!

Spud Waikato
Potato planter

Have potatoes and yams growing in these at the moment. First time I have used them. Look good to have round the garden and easy to shift with handles. Waiting to see what we get! Good strong bags.

Spud bag

Great price for a pack, we brought two packs after buying one single bag from a plant shop. Worked well good size we have them molded up a few times now and awaiting a our first crop of spuds. Handy to grow them in our smaller back yard as vegetable patch is too small
