GardenSoxx are made out of a unique mesh sock fabric that is filled with a high quality growing media. Prefilled GardenSoxx are filled with a special high quality Compost GrowingMediaTM. GardenSoxx are usually made in 2 foot sections, so they are easy to handle and move around.

To plant a Garden Soxx simply cut a hole in the mesh large enough to plant your plug or seeds, using scissors or a knife. Follow planting depths according to your plants, cover the seed or plug with the compost inside the sock, and water as usual. Prefilled GardenSoxx are filled with a high quality growing media that is free of weeds. In addition, the mesh completely holds this growing media, and helps to keep weeds from coming inside the sock.  It is very easy for children to help with the planting.
