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.
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.
