when it is ready to pot on
Planting up your Sacpot.
Fill your Sacpot with 1.4kg (3lbs) compacted soil. This will allow you to control its shape. For easy access, pull the inner liner back and down the outside of your Sacpot: this will widen the elasticated neck and free both hands for planting. Watch your Sacpot reach maximum stretch to accommodate root growth and pot on.
My trial pots suggested the elastic neck and inner liner reduced soil evaporation by up to half of the plant's watering needs. I tested this on new pots by watering my plants half the time with half the water and found my plants were happiest in damp soil, not moist and certainly not wet!
