Product Bite: Vigoroot Potato/Tomato Planters
What are Vigoroot Potato/Tomato Planters:
Vigoroot Potato/ Tomato Planters are air-pruning planters that offer a super easy way to grow bigger plants such as potatoes and tomatoes. What crop are they for: They are mainly used for potatoes and tomatoes but could any root veg such as carrots or parsnips where the added depth will allow them to thrive. You could even grow fruit trees such as damsons in them. They take 40 Litres of compost and will take 3 seed potatoes or two large tomato plants.
Where can I use them:
Use anywhere in the garden, patio, balcony or terrace. They are 35cm in daimeter so you only need a tiny space to get growing.
What's so special about it?
The Vigoroot fabric is what makes them special. The magic of this fabric comes from its ability to ‘air-prune’ the roots of plants, dramatically changing their formation and their ability to sustain the plant in a limited volume of compost. It encourages more vigorous rooting, which enables the plants to absorb more nutrients. It prevents the roots from growing too long, and helps prevent plants from becoming ‘pot-bound’ which would normally limit the plants’ growth. This means that the plants can grow to a much larger size in a relatively small pot. The super strong root system also helps the plants to become more resistant to harsh weather, pests and diseases. Used for many years by commercial growers, the benefits of air-pruning technology are well recognised by the trade. They also take all the hard work out of growing potatoes. There is no digging to prepare the bed and come harvest time you simply tip the planter over and pull out the potatoes.
