Grown with Care
Our seedlings are grown in 50x50x125mm tall ‘forest tubes’ produce air-pruned long linear root systems that lead to high planting success rates. Our advanced plants are raised in white bags which prevent root spiraling and improve their recovery when planted.
All our plants are sun and wind hardened before sale.
We use rainwater to raise our seedlings but switch to scheme water as they grow and are hardened. This allows the plants to adapt to the water quality in our region.
We only sell our seedlings when they are big enough to handle the real world with good root growth and vigour.
Grown to Order
Our tube stock is raised during summer ready for sale in autumn and winter to coincide with our regions seasonal rainfall periods.
