Woven planter bag size for Mango and Avocado

    2 responses

Hi there I am looking to plant my mango and avocado in some woven planter bags, for the first few years at least so I can move them in out of the cold during winter. Though will probably keep them in bags either sitting in a pot or in the ground to keep size down.
I have a Valencia Pride mango and Wurtz avocado at the moment, both in pots, and looking to get one or two more varieties of each soon.
What size bag would be best for these guys? I've recently used some of the 35l ones for a cherry, peach, nectarine and some raspberries but not sure if the mango or avocado will need a larger size.
many thanks Bek

Hie there

Its advised to start off with a smaller bag to avoid overwhelming/drowning the roots. for example if the pot you bought it in was a 2L pot, pot up to a 35L bag and it will last it for some years before needing to re-pot.

As they grow taller and larger they'll need larger bags. if you are using fabric pots, they can stay in those bags for longer as they'll air prune the roots preventing spiraling e.t.c allowing you to keep them in smaller bags for longer.

The maximum size i'd suggest is about 100L for grafted dwarf trees. My Kensington Pride Mango seedling is about 2 yrs old and still in a 20L fabric pot.

Figbarron thanks for that, just what I wanted to hear!!

It will be much easier to have them in smaller pots for the first few years as I will be moving them inside over the winter.

Wish I had known about these before, as my current mango and avocado are in larger pots at the moment, I think around 50l but not sure. Think I'll try transfer them into the 35l bags once the weather get a bit warmer. I only put them in those pots last year so hopefully they will do ok in the 35l bag.

And now I now I know when I get some more varieties I can start the off in a smaller bag.

Thanks again!!
