The cube-shaped pots are made from a porous Velcro-brand fabric that lets air get to the roots, promoting a healthy root system. The sides of the pot peel apart, so you can remove the plant without disturbing the roots.
The pots are washable and reusable. They won a 2013 Green Thumb Award from the Direct Gardening Association.
Peel Away Pots are available from Gardener's Supply Co. in 2- and 4-inch sizes and in two colors, red and brown. Prices range from $9.95 for sets of pots alone to $24.95 for kits containing pots and a self-watering tray.
They can be ordered at www.gardeners.com or 800-955-3370.
