Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GRMA Work great for what I needed
Have been thinking about container gardening for over a year as a way to grow vegetables, I am a newbie at this, was looking for containers that I could afford, could use on my front porch and be able to move and manage. Saw these and am so glad I bought them. These are the 7 gallon size.
I have tomatoes in a couple, cantaloupes in another, spinach in another, potato in yet another. Have no idea if I have it right, but the bags make it easy to learn. Pics are from about a month ago, tomatoes are about a foot above the top railing on the porch right now, doing well.
I found the best way to fill them was to open them, turn down about an inch or two around the top to make a collar, then add dirt. See Pics They seem to drain well. The thickness feels about the same as an old style brown paper bag or a fabric grocery bag. Heavier weight than a lawn trash bag. Best estimate. No regrets on this purchase.

I have no complaints about this product. It's a simple and affordable way to grow plants with a large root system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chaotianjiao Many sturdy pots, cheap!
I purchased this brand of pot in the past and was very happy with it. I was glad to see Home Depot carrying it cheaper than I could find them elsewhere. If you're planning on scaling up your container vegetable garden but don't want to spend $30+ apiece on large ceramic or plastic pots, these are a great quality, inexpensive choice.
These very sturdy 7 gallon bags, when full of soil, don't rip or tear when being lifted or scraped on concrete. They drain well, and the dual color means you can choose to keep the soil cooler in summer (white) or warmer in winter (black). They're the perfect size for larger vegetable plants like peppers, tomatoes, okra, squash, etc.
The only downside is that they are a little tricky to move because they don't have handles. I don't move my plants throughout the season, so moving them is only a chore I have to do once.
I've used them for two seasons, and they hold up well at least over that time. It's also great that, when finished, you can rinse them out and pack them flat. They take up very little space when empty.

Yeah, I use these for fabric storage. It's not what they're intended for, but it's very affordable and they work quite well for this purpose.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1gardener Not sturdy
This product was not sturdy as advertised. These grow bags are very thin. Not worth the money so I returned them
