With the fall season here, it’s a good time to consider ways to save in nursery supplies, like with TDI’s plastic grow bags.

Besides providing nurseries with an effective solution, all of our products are US-made. So what are the reasons that these flexible containers are so advantageous?

How To Save More With Plastic Grow Bags

There’s a slew of reasons why flexible nursery bags are beneficial. And being more economical is definitely a big advantage.

“Each potted plant in rigid plastic containers costs almost 2-3 times more than TDI’s filled plant grow bags. It’s because these mediums are thicker, contain more soil, and absorb more water.“  

Why are the poly plant bags so cost-effective? Well, there are different reasons for that:

Lighter Gauge

With less material processed during manufacturing, they are significantly more economical than other products on the market. 

Less Fuel

Less Storage Space with Plastic Grow Bags

In between planting seasons, these bags can easily be folded and stored, so they take a lot less storage space.

Logically, less material requires less energy during production. So this means that they leave a lower carbon footprint behind.

Reusable – Recyclable

Another benefit is that TDI’s plastic grow bags are oftentimes reusable, or recyclable for future repurpose.

Narrow Plastic Grow Bags

A lesser-known product is our narrow grow bag. With its small footprint in both size and material, they are usually the most cost-effective solution of all nursery bags.

By using a tiny grow container, you will need to purchase less soil, so you will spend less.


And with a smaller amount of soil, the plant needs less water to stay moist. So that’s another savings.

Since narrow grow bags take less horizontal space, you will be able to put more bags in the same amount of space you normally use. 

Deeper Roots

Clearly, taller plant bags allow species to grow longer roots which allows them to pull water deeper.

A local nursery owner explained:

Longer, taller bags encourage roots to grow deeper than usual. This is a benefit because once planted in the ground and if they aren’t watered, for instance, the roots can continue to pull water deeper from the ground.”
