Now that it’s spring, planting season is in full swing for many nurseries and greenhouses. And that means, getting all your supplies in order. Of course, there are many types of plant containers on the market. But why use plastic plant bags versus other types of rigid containers?
Let’s review first what plant bags are. And then we will show you why TDI’s popular nursery bags are one of the most effective solutions.
What is a nursery bag?
Each plastic plant bag comes folded flat so it needs to be unfolded first before each use. The filled container will be placed above the ground. Once the plant is mature enough, it is removed from the bag. The empty container will then be folded together again for storage until the next planting season.

TDI’s plant bags provide an excellent alternative to the traditional rigid pot, which is oftentimes heavy, thick and expensive to purchase. They are perfect for wholesale nurseries or greenhouse growers who are looking to save money while stimulating effective plant growth.
TDI’s plastic grow bags
As the name implies, these soft containers are a great solution for cultivating plants. They come in all kinds of sizes or thicknesses and can be customized with vent holes. The vents allow for proper water drainage and oxygen flow for healthy root growth.
Seed bags are pretty similar to plant bags. However, they are much smaller in size simply because they hold and protect fragile tiny seedlings only. Just like plant bags, TDI can produce them in various sizes and colors.
Another type of grow bags are tree sleeves. Unless plant or seed bags, they have an opening on both sides.
Tree sleeves hold and protect young or newly planted trees during growth. They guard the trunk against extreme weather conditions. Also, they prevent rabbits or small rodents from destroying the stem or the roots.
Why use Plastic Plant Bags?
There are Several Benefits:
- The bags are so lightweight, that they take less energy to produce while cheaper to transport.
- The price is right! It is very affordable to replace a bag with a new one, without breaking the bank.
- Since they fold up flat, they don’t take up much space so it will save you in storage costs.
- The punched holes provide for proper water drainage so roots will not rot easily.
- Also, the vents allow for the right oxygen flow so the plant stays healthy and grows faster.
- As the plastic is UV-resistant, it prevents overheating during warm summer months.
In recent years, heavy-duty, rigid grow bags have become popular items. The general belief is that they are environmentally-friendly. But is that true?
As a matter of fact, any heavy material takes a lot more energy to produce than plastic bags. This means that the manufacturing process releases more greenhouse gases into the air than lighter products.
TDI’s plant bags are thin with less material. Not only do they require less energy to produce, but they are also cheaper to transport. In addition, our containers are reusable and recyclable. We can even use a blend of recycled materials to produce a new custom plant bag. Now that’s what we call being environmentally friendly!
