New From Gardener's Supply -- Colorful Grow Bags Grow Almost Any Edible for $30
Beans on the Deck! Tomatoes on the Stoop! Potatoes on the Porch! What the Heck?
BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwire - February 21, 2011) - Whatever you intend to grow this gardening season -- beans, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes or peppers -- the new Colorful Grow Bags (available in periwinkle blue, poppy red and black) from Gardener's Supply will help yield a maximum harvest in a minimum amount of space. Gardener's Supply, the Vermont-based internet retailer, has tested the Colorful Grow Bags in their research and development gardens and the results were astounding.
"By using the correct amount of a specially formulated organic soil mix with a Colorful Grow Bag specific to the crop -- whether it's potatoes, carrots, lettuce, strawberries, tomatoes or peppers, we produced great harvests for many of the most popular crops," said Frank Oliver, Director of Product Development.
"It's an easy way for anyone in a sunny spot to grow their own vegetables, whether it's beans, tomatoes or carrots, for less than $30," continued Oliver. "I now use the Potato Bags in the garden next to my raised beds."
Each Colorful Grow Bag is custom-designed to maximize popular crops while using the least amount of soil. There are many benefits to using the Colorful Grow Bags, including:
- Patented polypropylene fabric "breathes" and "air-prunes" roots for strong, healthy root systems
- Tear-resistant material has reinforced seams
- Energized Potting Mix is an organic slow release fertilizer
- No tilling or amendments necessary
- Folds easily for compact off-season storage
- Red and Blue will reflect less heat in hotter climates
- Cage supports are included for tomato and bean bags
- Guaranteed for seven years
Herb Grow Bags and Salad Grow Bags are shallow bags, while Tomato, Carrot, Bean, Pepper and Potato Grow Bags are deep bags. The deeper bags are also available as Jumbo and Multi-Pocket Grow Bags. Both the Multi-Pocket Grow Bag and Herb Grow Bag feature 16 planting holes. The Herb Grow Bag also works well for strawberries.
The exclusive Gardener's Supply Grow Bag Mixes (used in the GS test gardens) are specially formulated for plant health, and feed plants for up to nine months. Sold in 20 quart bags, Energized Potting Mix and Organic Energized Potting Mix give plants a solid start with the ideal combination of nutrients.
