Fabric pots, also known as box pots or flower pots, are containers that are filled with soil, and the flowers or plants are then placed in the container, and the plant continues to grow. Typically the pot is placed into a sunny windowsill plant stand.

There are many different types of potting media, ranging from clay to gravel, from wood chips to sand, from gravel to wood chips, from crushed rock to shredded bark to even cardboard. These pots can be very convenient to use when growing herbs or vegetables. They come in all shapes and sizes.

What type of medium you choose for your plants will depend on the weather conditions where you live. For example, if you live in a warm climate, then you may want to use a fairly humid medium such as gravel so that the roots do not dry out, but if you live in a cold climate, then you would use a water-resistant medium such as sand, or another very absorbent material. The size of the pot will also affect the amount of sunlight your plants get, so you should make sure that the pots you choose will allow enough sunlight to reach the roots.

Also, some mediums will be fine to place inside the pot. For example, if you have a container garden, it may be okay to use gravel, but if you are growing anything from seedlings to cutting from the garden, then it is not okay to put the seeds inside the pot. This includes herbs such as thyme and marjoram.

So, how do you go about choosing the right type of fabric pots for your garden? Let’s look at a few options and see what each one has to offer.

Any Plants Can Be Grown In Fabric Pots

If you’re growing herbs or other plants, then you’re probably looking for flower pots. The most common flower pots are those that have clear plastic lids. Many also have clear, see-through slots, allowing the plant to breathe and allow more light into the pot. Most also have holes for drainage, although if you’re placing the plants in a sunny window sill, you may want to have holes for ventilation.

By far the best types of flower pots to use for your herbs or other plants are ceramic. These pots have a long history of quality and durability. With ceramic pots, there is no need to worry about the liquid from draining out of the bottom of the pot or over a period of time, because the liquid inside the pot is kept sealed. This is due to the fact that ceramic pots are completely impervious to water, or the liquid inside evaporating.

Another benefit of ceramic flower pots is that they are shatterproof. So, when you plant your herbs, you don’t have to worry about one of the leaves splintering off and falling on the plants below. This also eliminates the risk of damage caused by other plants or branches breaking off the pots.

Fabric Pots Are Available In Different Types

You can get fabric flower pots that are designed for hanging baskets. But these are not suitable for growing herbs since they will tend to be too small. When you’re hanging them up, they don’t have a big enough opening for the root balls of your flowers to grow out of. This can cause the plant to have an unfavorable harvest because the roots have nowhere to run to.

All of the cloth-based fabric pots made today are also easy to clean. If you do have to wash the pots after they’ve been used, you’ll find that it’s very easy to clean the pots. And get them ready for the next season of use.

Some flower pots today are available in colorful designs. In addition, some of these more colorful pots, are now more absorbent than the traditional ones. It allows for larger flowers to be grown inside them. These are perfect for growing and transplanting flowers from seeds or cuttings.


A good option for growing plants in potting media, or any container, is a bucket of water. Watering the plants is essential to a healthy plant, but never to overwater.
