Has anyone used Potlicker liners by Rootmaker inside containers?

cottagegardenlover(9b)June 12, 2013

This product looks like a great way to keep container plants rootpruned and encourage lateral root growth and discourage the plant from becoming potbound.

Has anyone used it and where can you buy it?

Is it expensive?

It says it's reusable.

Very interesting link. I had problems of root bound. Thanks for sharing.

I'm reading all about Al's mixes and because I have a disability I need to see what I can do to simplify things as much as possible.

I have had caregivers help me with root pruning my boxwood topiaries this year, but it's a heavy duty job. If I change to gritty mix next spring I don't know if it will be possible to keep up with all of that labor in the years to come.

Plus, I think the root pruning process of their product is probably a great asset to encouraging the growth of lateral roots.

But I haven't seen any place online that sells them. (I buy almost everything online because I don't drive.)

I'll probably just contact the company, but I was curious why more people don't seem to know about this here in the container forum?
