#3 Redi Root Pot
We now are offering birch grown in the #3 RediRoot pot. This unique pot offers a number of advantages over a standard pot. The open sides and bottom of the pot promote complete air pruning to produce a heavy well branched root system. This system also eliminates circling roots, developing a more natural root mass. The pot design allows perfect drainage and plentiful air exchange to prevent root pathogens and encourages strong vigorous roots. Plants are shipped without the pot in plant-able biodegradable mesh covers. This also reduces shipping weight and saves you money. Pots are reused year after year, helping the environment by reducing the amount of plastic used and entering landfills.
Pots are planted with 4 stems per pot guaranteeing a minimum of 3 stems upon arrival.
