For Everyone & Commercial Growers
Almost anything! Over 150 varieties of fruits & vegetables and over 35 herb varieties along with countless flowers have successfully been planted with GardenSoxx®. Popular plants grown in GardenSoxx® include strawberries, tomatoes, basil, lettuce, peppers and so much more!
GardenSoxx® is made of polypropylene.
Many products used in organic agriculture are made of HDPE/LDPE and PP. Drip irrigation which is in direct contact with your soil and sometimes touching the stem of the plant is made of plastic. Plastic mulch, which covers the soil is a film used in organic agriculture.
Although we do have customers who grow organically with the GardenSoxx®, we highly suggest contacting your local certifier to get full confirmation from them.
Polypropylene doesn’t leach to the soil or water. The products that do leach and that need to be addressed and regulated are the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Those harmful products are what leach and contaminate our waters and create uncontrollable algae bloom.
With a product like GardenSoxx®, you don't need to use any harmful products such as herbicides or fertilizers. Use great compost and let your plants grow.
The presence of weeds will depend on the quality of your compost. High quality compost should not have any weed seeds hence when used with GardenSoxx® your crop will be weed-free.
Simply cut a hole in the mesh large enough to plant your plug or seeds, using scissors or a knife. A 2” hole or smaller is recommended. Follow planting depths according to your plants, cover the seed or plug with the compost inside the sock, and water as usual.
One cubic yard of compost will fill approximately 60 feet of GardenSoxx mesh (the mesh is 8" in diameter). The finished linear footage may vary, depending on the number of cuts/sections you make, as each cut requires a tie-off that uses up some of your length. We recommend using zip ties instead of knots to maximize the finished length.
Because of its innovative mesh system, GardenSoxx® are nearly impossible to overwater because of their ability to drain excess water. For a 16 sq. ft. GardenSoxx® garden (8 GardenSoxx®) we recommend two 2-gallon watering cans every day. Or, use .5 gallons per GardenSoxx®, per day.
We also recommend using the drip irrigation that is included with your GardenSoxx® kit for the highest water efficiency, which allows you to water less. Our Drip Kits come with all the fittings needed to quickly install the drip tape in your GardenSoxx® Garden. Hook up the system to your hose and you are ready to water your plants. Using the drip system will ultimately water your plants better, and save you more water.
You may also wish to purchase a timer at your local hardware store to make watering even easier! Most importantly, pay special attention to your plants, because they will show you when they are too wet or dry.
GardenSoxx® can last for at least two growing seasons without additional fertilizers or nutrients. After two seasons, the plants in your GardenSoxx® begin to deplete the nutrients.
Alternatively, you may cut open the GardenSoxx® and reuse the compost in an “in ground” garden area, and/or replace the GardenSoxx®. Always pay attention to your plants; they may need a little added push earlier or later than recommended above.
You can leave your GardenSoxx® outside for the winter. GardenSoxx® do best in outdoor conditions, because this allows the moisture content and biological activity to remain high.
