We grow in a 50-celled "Deep Plug" tray. The plug size is approximately 2 inches in diameter and 4.5 inches in depth, holding twice the soil volume and root mass of a standard 50-cell tray. The "Deep Plug" also incorporates the use of root channels to decrease root spiraling. In easy order multiples, our "Deep Plug" offers more roots for the money. More roots means quicker establishment when planted directly in the landscape with less post installation maintenance. The "Deep Plug" when potted into larger containers can improve "turn around" by as much as two weeks. When you compare our "Deep Plug" to the industry standard, we are sure you'll see the advantages.
Many items are often available in a "Deep Plug", DP72 liner. The 72-cell plug size is approximately 1.5 inches in diameter and 3 inches in depth, a more economical alternative to the 50-cell plug, while retaining a larger root system for the fastest results. Below are plants we are currently offering in DP72.
Monarda d. ‘Jacob Cline’
Phlox divaricata ‘London Grove Blue’
Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldstrum’
Panicum virgatum ‘Heavy Metal’
Panicum virgatum ‘Shenandoah’
Schizachyrium scoparium ‘The Blues’
