The seed is propagated inside our greenhouses, which are equipped with air-root pruning benches and RootMaker® propagation trays.
The seedlings are transplanted into larger RootMaker® growing systems 30-45 days after germination. Stage 2 liners offer a variety of container designs and sizes to suit your production method and timelines.
Trees in Stage 3 require two growing seasons. The trees in these 5 or 7 gallon RootTrapper® Liners were germinated and grown in 5" Knit Bags the previous year.
