GardenSoxx Frequently Asked Questions
GardenSoxx® are made of 8″ diameter polypropylene mesh.
Typically sold unfilled, Gaston Mulch and Soil’s partnership with GardenSoxx® allows them to be pre-filled with Gaston’s high-quality, organic soil.
Planting is easy with GardenSoxx®. Using a knife or scissors, simply cut a hole in the mesh large enough to plant a plug or seeds. We recommend a 2” hole or smaller. Follow the proper planting depths for the plant, cover the seed or plug with the compost inside the sock, and water as usual.
The number of plants that can be placed in GardenSoxx® varies. Some plants, like zucchini, need a lot of space to grow, and other plants, like lettuce, can be planted more densely. We recommend following the spacing instructions from your seed or plant supplier.
Because of its innovative mesh system, GardenSoxx® are nearly impossible to overwater because they allow excess water to drain. However, that means as the mesh breathes, it will dry out sooner than normal soil. We recommend a half-gallon of water per day for every 2′ of GardenSoxx®. We also suggest installing the Drip Irrigation Kit for the highest water efficiency. Drip irrigation kits are available for pickup at Gaston Mulch and Soil along with GardenSoxx®.
GardenSoxx® can last for at least two growing seasons without additional fertilizers or nutrients. After two seasons, the plants begin to deplete the nutrients in the GrowingMedia or compost. It is possible to plant beyond two years but the growing media may need to be changed or amended.
GardenSoxx® are popular for growing vegetables, flowers, and native plants. Due to their unique design and portability, GardenSoxx can be used in a variety of applications, from large-scale agricultural farms and community gardens to small hobby gardens. GardenSoxx® are also great for starting a rain garden, and can be used on green roofs or even in ponds. GardenSoxx can easily fit in most standard planters, plant stands, and window boxes. In other words, GardenSoxx can grow almost anywhere!
