But it may not be obvious that there's a horticultural benefit to using an aerated pot like this: the plants' roots reach the sides of the pot and simply stop growing at that spot, so your plants don't get so rootbound in smartpots. They stay naturally just the right size for the pot they're in.
You can also use them for growing strawberries (just cut holes in the sides for a traditional strawberry pot) or potatoes (easy to empty out at the end of the season).
They're made of a type of woven polymer product that doesn't break down like a normal fabric, so they're even long-lasting.
As a landscaper, I was surprised to like these so much. I use them for providing annual displays of color and being able to rotate plants that look good with plants that need more grow-time to be full and lush. I also use them to tuck into tough corners of the landscape like in rockwork, so I can have ferns or other plants in odd-shaped crevices.
They are really good for occasional gardeners (your family and friends) that want to grow a tomato and pepper on the patio. They can empty, fold, and use next year.
I have several Citrus Trees (Lemons and Limes) in Smart Pots. There is such a difference in health of the trees, amount and size of the fruits growing in the Smart Bags. They breath and they drain so good. It keeps the roots pruned. Citrus Tree Roots have a tendency to girdling (prevents it).
Smart Pots don't get hot like plastic or clay and the plants seem to maintain just the right moisture. The tomatoes and peppers are amazing grown in these pots.
The big pots are so much easier to move than other types of pots. I will be trying the Smart Pots Raised Bed. They were developed after 15 years of research at Oklahoma State University.
I haven't had a problem with black widow spiders taking up residence in these pots. No insects enter through the bottom of the Smart Pot container (nasty little Rollie Pollie's and snails). About the only reason bugs come in your house are for water. Insects are automatically drawn to garden pots. I have given up on spider spray (makes me ill and it is expensive). I use bathroom foam cleaner to kill black widows (and it is easy to see their nests and eggs when you foam them). Black Widows love love garden pots (they eat their catch live). For that reason alone Smart Pots are marvelous.
As far as the seller goes. The product got to me before its last expected shipping date. Overall I was very satisfied.
Thanks for the great product.

I tried speaking with my Smart Pots. They did not respond. So I was not able to assess whether they are smart or not. But as far as growing plants, they do a fantabulous job. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Adam Jones
