Removing Plants from Grow Bags

At Grimm’s Gardens we use fabric grow-bags to give our customers the highest quality plants we can. We use a fabric aeration container that releases heat and root prunes a plant’s root structure. Your plants will live longer when the roots are properly flared (spread out) and not circling.

 NEVER attempt to pull the plant out of the grow bag as you would with a plastic pot!  It will destroy the root ball and your plant will probably not survive. 

Follow these simple instructions to successfully remove the plant in preparation for planting.
