Potato Planter Bags Squat Bags Super Tubes and Trays
Coco fibre syn. coir fibre is the green alternative to peat. Coco fibre products are made from the shell of coconuts. They are a renewable, natural product free from genetic modification and are acceptable for organic growing.
Coir Peat Brick
These 100% coco bricks have so many uses. When added to soil they will substantially improve structure, break up hard clay and increase water holding capacity in sandy soils for up to 5 years. Great for worm farms, add to potting mix for baskets and containers, mix into trees holes, top dress pot plants and use for propagation of cuttings. One brick expands up to 9 litres when water is added.
These circular discs swell when soaked in water. Place a single seed in the centre. When the plant develops roots through the biodegradable netting, plant it out. Perfect for one-step seed raising (no potting mix required, no thinning, no pricking out). Makes a plug 35 mm wide x 35 mm tall approximately (size may vary due to the manufacturing process).

Forestry Tube and Tray Pack
Used at Green Harvest we find these pots, traditionally used by forestry departments, are excellent for woody stem or leaf cuttings as well as propagation of tree and shrub seed.
These (50 mm wide by 120 mm deep) specially designed tapered tubes are used in the system above or you can closely pack them in a styrofoam box.
Super Tubes are similar but larger.
Mini Planter Bag
This 20 litre woven bag has a diameter of 280 mm and height of 330 mm. Perfect for holding your new fruit trees or native shrubs in a commercial quality container. You get the same depth as the 35 litre bag but require far less material to fill it. Suits perennial vegetables and the reinforced stitched handles makes it easy to move according to heat, light and moisture requirements. Try growing your tropical plants in these and moving in and out of a greenhouse as the seasons change.
Ideal for smaller shrubs and young fruit trees awaiting planting out at a new site. Highly productive in the home water garden (water chestnuts, arrowhead and more). If your soil is poor or difficult to work, here's a way to grow chillies, eggplant, capsicums and more. These bags are used in propagation and production nurseries, horticulture and professional landscaping but are small enough to use on the balcony. Great size for moving a plant indoors in colder weather. Diameter is 370 mm and height is 330 mm - 35 litre capacity.
TP164 Potato Planter Bag
These large professional quality planter bags are ideal as a productive alternative for raising potatoes. Planting instructions: 1/3 fill the bag with good quality potting mix, compost etc. Put 3 - 5 spuds on the surface then cover with a few centimetres more of mix. When shoots emerge, add mix to cover; continue to 'hill up' as shoots re-emerge until foliage is above the top of the bag. By this method you can increase your yields hugely as potatoes will produce along the entire buried stem (at least 400 mm, a depth many Australian soils will not achieve) Potatoes are ready for harvesting when the majority of the tops have withered; this can be from 12 to 20 weeks after planting, depending on the variety. Diameter is 460 mm and height is 460 mm - 75 litre capacity.
TP187 Squat Bag
Ideal for growing shallow rooted perennial plants or others which tend to surface root. With an extra-large capacity they are also suitable for planting shrubs and a huge variety of plants as a permanent pot. To really use the root zone (full bag depth) consider combining a tree on dwarf rootstock surrounded by vegetables and flowers. You will also find these bags indispensable in the garden as they are the perfect size for carrying green garden waste. With the strong reinforced stitched handles you can drag your pruning and grass cuttings to the compost bin. Diameter is 530 mm and height is 460 mm - 100 litre capacity.
TP204 PopUp Garden Planter Bag
Position for easy kitchen harvesting and where it will receive at least 6 hours early day-time sunshine. No tools or construction required just unfold, fill and plant. With a 400 litre capacity (the size of an average hay bale) this bag is perfect, far simpler to set up for use as a no-dig, raised garden bed and at a fraction of the cost. You can use several to ensure your crops are rotated on a regular basis. Feed your family organically by planting a wide range of vegetables. You can also plant trees, shrubs and your favourite perennial plants such as asparagus whether you own or rent just top dress each winter with organic fertilizer, worm castings, manures and compost for fantastic crops. Diameter is 920 mm and height is 600mm - 400 litre capacity.
Super Tubes and Trays
