Unique Garden Pot Ideas
If you’re planning to design an outdoor garden, whether you’re planting herbs, veggies, or flowers an easy way to add a bit fun and creativity is by adding some fun but functional planters.

- Has good drainage: The Nonwoven fabric means the pots do not retain excess water, allowing your roots to breathe, translating to a healthier, more vigorous growth
- With durable, reinforced handles: While the competition uses flimsy handles that are a continuation of the same fabric the pot is made from, we use serging stitches to sew handles onto the pot so they can support a full bag of soil
- Both heavy-duty handles and rugged material means you can move bags full of soil and plants with ease
- They last for years! Bags prevent circling root structure. Combined with pruning and trimming roots, these bags can be reused for years.
