Mr Fothergill’s Vigoroot pots Mr Fothergill’s new Vigoroot pots are suitable for a wide variety of herbs, flowers, and shrubs, as well as exotics and smaller-sized vegetables. At the end of the growing season, they can be washed in cold water, thoroughly dried, folded away and stored for the following year. The Vigoroot fabric has the ability to ‘air-prune’ the roots of plants, dramatically changing their formation and their ability to sustain the plant in a limited volume of compost. It also encourages more vigorous rooting, which enables the plants to absorb more nutrients, prevents the roots from growing too long, and helps prevent plants from becoming ‘pot-bound’. The Vigoroot pots are made from recycled polyester, PET bottles and clothing fabric, with each pot lasting approximately three to six years, depending on conditions, and come in five, 10 and 20-litre pot sizes.
