What is a GROWbag?

GROWbag is a unique outdoor planter that serves only one purpose: To fit into ones life and any living space! Old billboard vinyl material that would normally be thrown away is converted into an unique range of planters – creating new life by growing plants! This vinyl is highly durable and incredibly long lasting – which makes it the perfect material for our GROWbags! Each GROWbag is handmade in Cape Town by skilled producers who pride themselves with quality work and ethics. With this project we are empowering our staff and creating jobs.

Which materials is a GROWbag made out of?

Our GROWbag planters are 100% recycled – we only use two materials to create this new generation of planters: old billboard vinyl/PVC and special wax coated polyester thread. Each planter is one of a kind in colour – the vinyl print on the outside of the bag is carefully selected, so that it creates an interesting story. Particular parts of the bag have been reinforced to ensure the best quality outdoor planters. All bags have been rigorously tested in order to make these outdoor planters durable in all weather conditions as well as to ensure that the perfect growing condition is created for any plant.

How functional is a GROWbag?

The GROWbags are light in weight, the handles provide the flexibility needed to move or carry. The side pockets allow for extra grow-space or can be used for storage of gardening utensils. The specification sheet under the Range tab shows details and drawings of each bag.

  1. I could probably use a couple of these bags since I am sort of becoming a horticulturalist.

      They are convenient as well as attractive. Guess what, I’ve spent lots and lots of time in the flower beds this season. The paper carrier ran over my begonias at the end of the driveway three times, and he didn’t offer the reimburse me for killing about 36 flowers. Now, he’s required to walk the paper up the drive from the street.
