Which Shorty Soil Savers Do I buy?

Which Shorty Soil Saver size do I buy?

We have manufactured the Shortys to say their ACTUAL gallon size. That means if you were growing in a 65 gallon Classic style pot, you’d need to buy a 45 gallon Shorty.  The base diameter of the two pots would match and you’d save 20 gallons of soil!  That’s the whole point of the Shorty Soil Saver™ of course, to save you on soil.  If you currently use 65 gallon Classic style pots, you would NOT buy a 65 gallon Shorty.  The base of your pot would be super huge and you’d end up with the same amount of soil.

For quick reference guide to help you choose your pot size, we made this chart!
