We've decided to use air-pruning containers for the majority of our nursery production. Wondering what an air-pruning container is? Would you like your plant material growing in a pot that virtually eliminates transplant shock resulting in less plant loss and faster first year growth, provides 360˚ aeration which produces a dense, fibrous root system ready to explode with new growth, produces strong and fibrous root growth which encourages rapid nutrient uptake ensuring stronger, healthier plants, maximizes root health which translates into bigger, healthier plants and trees? Us too!
There is plenty of activity behind the scenes here at Unity Church Hill Nursery. January was a month of finalizing plans: our list of plants we plan to grow, which air-pruning containers and cell trays to use, irrigation systems for greenhouse and outdoor tree production, tree support and container stabilization systems, and vendors and suppliers.
