Can you tell me the thickness of the fabric used for the 10-gallon and 20-gallon bags? I'm trying to decide how many seasons I can expect to reuse this.
The 7, 10, 25 and 100 gallon bags are 350g/㎡. The 1-5 are 300g/㎡.
I am looking for a size, ( or two ). larger than this, something approximating an actual 5 gallon bucket. I see 'trade' gallons are not liquid gallons. Is there something larger ?
Our 5 gallon bags are now 5.3 liquid gallons. These may also be listed as 7 trade gallons from other suppliers.
when will you be getting the 5 gal in stock in the 5 pak.
We will be back in stock of the 5 pack 5 gallon grow bags at the end of July. We are in the middle of a small redesign to make the fabric thicker to provide a higher quality product. Sorry for the the inconveniance.
Do I have to cut drainage holes in the bottom of my 7 gallon black fabric grow bags?
You don't need to cut any drain holes in the grow bags. The water will naturally seep out of the fabric.
How many tomatoes plants can /should you put in the 25 gallon bags
Tomatoes generally like their own containers, so we'd recommend the 4-7 gallon size for tomatoes. That said, you could get 2-3 in a 25 gallon bag.
What is a good mix for organic growing in grow bags? Was thinking of 12 cu ft peat 2.4 cu ft coir, 8 cu ft perlite with 5 pounds of lime and organic fertilizer from there. 53% 10% 35% on the bulk ingredients similar to promix mp organic mix. Thoughts or better suggestion? Just growing vegetables. Bags and trays are quality products. Thank you.
This is a good mix for containers nice and light. Pro-mix and commercial potting mixes are good choices for small containers and many times less expensive that mixing your own batch. Vermiculite can also be used with or in exchange of the perlite if needed, it is sometimes easier to find at retail locations. Vegetable fertilizer is for sure needed and I would likely add slow release pelleted fertilizer to bags since the coir and peat by themselves have no nutrition.
