Crew Easy Trim Potting Drainage Mesh - Long 30cm x 10cm - Singles

$1.50 NZD


"I have used these now for both small and large pots that have the drainage holes. I love them. When excess water drains, it is nice to not have the soil coming out, too." JJ

"If you are a plantaholic, like me, buy these. They are so handy when potting your houseplants. They are sturdy. They can be used many times, as they don’t become rusted." @michelle_adsit

"I like to add one to the bottom of every pot with a drainage hole! Otherwise I lose dirt out the bottom. This helps everything stay contained. The mesh can be trimmed to any size you like." @rachael_h


What is potting drainage mesh for?

Use Drainage Mesh over drainage holes when potting and repotting. Simple and quick. Helps prevent soil loss, without blocking drainage holes, keeping soil free-draining. 


Size and material

Drainage mesh comes in 3 sizes and 2 grades. The fine mesh has gaps just under 2mm and is a finer, more flexible, thinner mesh. The long (that's this size) measures 30cms long x 10cm wide, giving you the most flexibility for different sized pots, or multiple pots (just trim to the size and shape you need). This size has a medium-size mesh, with the mesh gaps measuring just under 3mm.

Made of sturdy plastic. Won't rust or degrade. Reusable over-and-over. Firm but easy to trim with scissors or snips. Suitable for longer Bonsai pots also. Change the shape. Round. Square. Small. Large. Easy to customise. You can use a doubled-up layer when using extra-fine substrates, or get the finer mesh option instead

Much better for your plants compared to adding a 'drainage layer' of pebbles or bark. This is why never to add a drainage layer >

Although cheap, these are not intended to be thrown away. We hope you'll be mindful and re-use them every time you repot :)

Great service thanks. I will be using this mesh in my bonsai pots to stop the medium from washing out the drainage holes. Should be perfect for the job
