This pot provides ample room for well-formed root development. The plants are spaced with the necessary growing room to start forming healthy branches. Our cool, sunny summers and relatively low humidty promote thick stems and heavy branches. They are grown outside during the growing season and stored in unheated polyhouses in the winter.
One factor that makes our plants exceptional is our growing environment. Our evergreen quart liners are grown in an organic medium that encourages strong tops and heavy roots. Our native strains of ectomycorrhizae develop in our Gro-Plug® and quart liners early. Mycorrhizae fungus forms a beneficial association with the roots to enhance water and nutrient uptake. This relationship can be seen on the short feeder roots as a white threadlike mold.
The roots and mycorrhyzae work together to provide a healthier and larger plant. Plants will establish easier and grow faster in your nursery because of this beneficial fungus.
The quart liner is the ideal starter plant for field or container planting. As a container liner in its own pot, it does not need to be planted immediately and will wait until you are ready. We are confident you will find our evergreen quart liners a useful tool in your growing operation.
