SIZE SHAPE AND PRICE, IN PERFECT PROPORTION

Size really does matter

especially when planting in shallow water.  The foliage of our shallow water plants extends well above the waterline.  This allows the plants to establish quickly and reliably, and avoids the expense of manually lowering and raising the water level to accommodate inferior plants. 

Our Plants


grow mainly in containers 1.6 inches wide by 5 inches deep with a volume of 6.7 cubic inches.  The American Standard for Nursery Stock classifies our containers as "SP1". 

  • TALLER and more vigorous than standard plugs
  • LESS EXPENSIVE than 4" diameter pots, yet perform  just as well in rough conditions
  • DEEP NARROW root balls that stay in place during floods
  • FAST & EASY to install properly

There are a few exceptions

to our large plugs.  The deep water species, with their typically sparse roots,  are normally lifted from our isolation beds and shipped bare root.  And the Spartinas seem to grow best in 2” diameter x 2” deep plugs, so we follow their lead.

A PACKAGING SYSTEM THAT SHRINKS YOUR LABOR EXPENSE

We remove plants from their growing trays, so you don't have to

The roots of most wetland plants are extremely aggressive.  Removing plants from growing trays at a job site can easily add 30% to installation labor, destroy plants, and add to cleanup costs.  So we do it for you!

Every plant you get is top quality

Our strong, waterproof shipping bags protect the plants, maintain proper hydration, and make it easy to carry lots of plants around messy sites.  Just be sure to keep them out of the hot sun.

Even the labels on our bags make life easier

Our bag labels are color coded to show the best water level for the species inside, so your crew can tell at a glance which plant goes where. 

The labels show the scientific and common names (for inspector-types) and a 4 or 5 letter code for the rest of us. 

Plus, we can add custom information - such as the assigned location for the plants inside - at no charge, making it super simple to organize the installation.
