Air Pruning Containers: Manufactured from recyclable plastic, these reusable containers enhances the root system of plants and trees.
In normal containers, roots grow to the outside edge of the pot and then circle, over and over again, which can lead to the root system strangling itself and suffocating if not transplanted.
Why Air Pruning Containers: Air Pruning Containers walls are made up of closed inward pointing cones and open ended outward pointing cones. The inward pointing cones direct the roots to the outward pointing cones where the air density in the soil is too great, the roots dehydrate and effectively prune themselves. The plants respond to this Air Pruning by generating more roots, this leads to a fibrous root system with a vast number off active white tipped roots. The plants then can absorb more nutrients and water which stimulates faster growth.
Short root systems with several root tips are far more productive than long root systems or big, fat roots. Roots that are white in colour with many root tips are the most important for healthier plants and higher yields. This is where plants and trees benefit when grown in Air Pruning Containers, the root building pot.
These Air Pruning Containers have been manufactured to our spec, with the base having the extra support of legs for added stability.
When filling the Air Pruning Containers it is important there are no air pockets. Make sure the Container is completely filled and tap down so the cones are filled with compost.
