The GeoPlanter raised bed is a great advancement over traditional wooden-raised bed gardening with improved drainage, aeration that naturally keeps roots cool, and reusability for years to come! The PVC pipe frame helps with the ease of construction, provides support, and offers a convenient base for building a plant support trellis or cold frame above.
Beside the durability, aeration, and air root-pruning capabilities, using a Geoplanter has all the benefits of a traditional wooden planter without a lot of the heavy work of building a wooden planter. There is no need to till or amend the soil, and the material is gopher deterrent.
BENEFITS OF AIR-PRUNING
Air-pruning exposes root tips to dry air, effectively stopping the roots’ growth. This enables the plant to accommodate its established boundaries and start creating secondary feeder roots rapidly.
This cycle repeats continuously, allowing more efficient water and nutrient uptake in your container garden. The overall effect is a well-developed root system grown in a fraction of the time needed for traditional planting containers.
