VIAGROW INSTALLING FABRIC ROOT AERATION RAISED BED PLANTERS Models: 100, 200, or 300 Gallon Planters Page 1 of 2 Step 1. Preparing your planter Once you have decided where to place the planter, unfold the fabric planter, and fill with soil or your favorite growing medium. Soil can be filled to the top of the planter or fabric can be folded back – similar to the cuff on a shirt. Step 2. Spacing your plants Space plants to ensure they will fit in the planter and have proper room to grow. Smaller root aeration pots can be placed directly into the larger planter. Step 3. Planting Dig a hole large enough for the plant and fill dirt up to the stem base. Press dirt firmly around each plant. Use stakes to secure plants have support to grow. Step 4. Maintaining your plants Water plants as directed by your nursery. Normal excess water runoff may permeate through the planter fabric.
