Tree I.V. Fill & Haul Deep Root System

We added a Plug and a Lid so you can fill the Reservoir and haul it for watering a remote tree. You can't do that with a Treegator bag! The self-supported Tree I.V. Root Feeder is also easier to fill and won't smother or damage your tree.

Draining

While you are off enjoying life, the Root Seeker is deep releasing water at the natural percolation rate of your soil. This irrigation method reduces the quantity of water from 15 gallons to just 5 gallons.

All feeder roots now have access to water for at least a week. The typical 15 minute drain time is the same as slow-watering with a hose. If you're watering 6 new trees, you'll save 90 minutes... every week!

About Us

Tree I.V. Root Seekers from SayeGrow

SayeGrow is a family business located on Big Hill Lake in SE Kansas. The Tree I.V. concept was developed here as we needed a quick and efficient way to water new trees on our hillside landscape. When we realized we were saving 2 hours a week while getting maximum growth from our trees, we took the business opportunity.

Since 1999 we have continued to tinker around with this product and how to get it to you. The buckets and root seekers are sourced from US-owned and operated factories, and final assembly happens at our location. We would love for you to join our thousands of satisfied customers. Give us a chance to be a valued part of your tree growing experience. We won't let you down!
