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.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We ordered 6 of these last year to water newly planted spruce trees. They held up great. We removed them for the harsh Minnesota winters, but I just put them all back in the ground. I am ordering more, as we are planting more trees. Such a time-saver!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Work well for deep watering of new trees. I've been using these for approximately a year, and they work way better than drilling holes in the bottom of a 5-gallon bucket. The water actually gets to the roots.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Everything else in our garden is stressed from lack of rain, but our newly planted shrubs and trees which have the Root Seeker buckets near them are doing fine. Great product.

Draining a 5 gallon Tree I.V. deep root watering system that combines tree watering bags with a ross root feeder

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.

Soaked

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

SayeGrow is a family business located on Big Hill Lake in SE Kansas. About 20 years ago we found ourselves in need of a quick and efficient way to water new trees on our hillside landscape. We found Treegator bags as simply too big, and Ross Root Feeders as too slow. For what became our Tree I.V. concept, we combined the self-containment of bags with the deep release of a root feeder. As we cut our watering time from 2 hours to about 10 minutes and drastically reduced our weekly water bill, we took the business opportunity.

Since 1999 we have worked to keep up with rapidly growing demand through our online outlets. The buckets and root seekers are sourced from US-owned and operated factories, and final assembly happens at our location. We continue as a factory-direct business and our thousands of customers include homeowners, city parks, and businesses of all types and sizes. Give us a chance to prove our value and we will not let you down!
