A lot of things will grow through gravel, but to enable the plants to grow naturally I would remove the weed fabric.

Rootrainers, are they worth it

Posted: 30/03/2014 at 21:41

I've used mine for sweetpeas for the past three years. I like them. For certain plants that like long root runs I think they are ideal. They are fine if you are careful with them. They won't stand rough handling.

I would just like to put another viewpoint.

 F1 employs a lot of people, many of them in this country. designers , mechanics, pattern makers, aerodynamicists, wind tunnel experts. My OH has  earned quite a lot of money from the whims of certain F1 teams. It enables me to spend more time in the garden instead of slaving away on a hot till. There are winners and losers. If you don't like it, switch it off and go to Youtube and watch  Rick van man or the sainted Geoff Hamilton. I don't watch it. I'm going to plant my broad beans instead.
