Dear Bill,
Thanks for the very interesting information. What does PB stand for?  and the 40 stand for Litres? I suppose that thes bags are the same as those used  in tree nurseries.  Ar there no problems to handles these  bags? I suppose that the reason to use these rather then plastic pots is the price? (or are there other advantages)
Kind regards
