Watering Solution Prevents Transplant Shock

When you're making an investment and effort in planting new trees in your landscape, you can assure their survival and growth by using the Slow Release Watering Bag—a truly simple and innovative drip irrigation system in a bag.

This watering solution instantly helps your new tree through the shock and stress that comes from transplanting it, releasing the proper amount of water directly to the root structure where it’s needed most.

Depending on the size and shape of your new tree or shrub, choose between these options:

  • 2.5 Gallon Ring: Perfect for tree saplings, perennials, vegetable and container gardening. 5 hour release time.
  • 15 Gallon Ring: Ideal for trees with low branches, shrubs and multi-stem trees. 5-8 hour release time.
  • 15 Gallon Bag: Great for newly planted or established trees with higher limbs and 1-8 inches in diameter. 5-9 hour release time.
  • 20-Gallon Ring: This high-capacity model holds 20 gallons of water, utilizing two removable emitters to release water slowly over a 5- to 8-hour period.

With hot summers and droughts the norm around the country, the Slow Release Watering Bag is an absolute necessity to protect your new trees and shrubs. You won’t have to worry about whether you’ve given your tree enough water, and you can go on vacation and relax knowing that this nifty drip system is taking all the anxiety out of caring for your landscaping.

This watering solution is super easy to install without any tools, and it can easily be filled up with a standard garden hose or can even be connected to a rain barrel! It's a super time saver that takes the worry out of continually remembering whether you've watered your new tree or not. Plus, all the water that goes into the drip bag is used up with no waste, so the Slow Release Watering Bag is environmentally friendly with regard to water use.

Don't wait—get yours with your new purchase today!


Your Slow Release Watering Bag will discharge water from the two elbow-shaped PVC emitters. If your bag/ring is emptying faster than expected, ensure it’s completely full of water, and confirm that the emitter nozzles are inserted correctly and/or are not missing. Ensuring your bag/ring is placed on a flat surface can also help regulate watering—it will drain faster when placed on a slope.

Love the idea!

I love the idea, but the water goes through the bag in a day. It was advertised to seep out in three days. I thought it was going to be a slow release.

Fast Growing Trees Plant ExpertMost of the watering bags have an average of 5-8 hours until they drain. We apologize for the confusion1
