For trees to thrive they need healthy roots, but standard pots deform roots which seriously compromises the tree. The Air-Pot system does the opposite, actively enhancing the plant, by making it develop a mass of healthy fibrous roots. This maximizes its ability to absorb nutrients and water, leading to a healthier, faster growing tree.
Traditional methods of growing trees — both in the ground and above the ground — can and do result in disappointing quality and unacceptable loses. Trees have too often been allowed to be viewed as 'throwaway' items.
The Experts – Nurseries
Commercial nurseries in many countries are reaping the benefits of the Air-Pot system, producing fantastic quality stock across a huge range of species. Air-Pot grown trees require less repotting reducing costs and allowing more flexibility in the management of stock . When planted their fantastic roots enable instant establishment in the landscape, dramatically reducing losses.
From conifers on the edge of the Arctic circle, to palm trees in the Gulf, from English hedges to Florida oranges the Air-Pot system is helping expert growers across the world grow better trees, in less time. Watch video
The Experts – Institutions
In many countries horticultural Institutions have adopted the Air-Pot system for their work in research and conservation. The top botanical experts have embraced the benefits of the system and trust it to produce the finest possible plant specimens for their academic research and conservation work.
Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh (RBGE) and the National Pinetum at Bedgebury are using the system for the propagation of endangered species, as a part of the international conifer conservation project. While at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew over 3000 species of plant are being grown in Air-Pot containers.
Botanical Institutions in all corners of the world are now working with the Air-Pot system. From the Eden project in England, to PPO in Holland and botanical gardens in Germany, Gibralter and Oman. Watch video
The Experts – Landscapers
The instant establishment and almost 100% success rate of Air-Pot grown stock means it is now being specified for the most prestigious developments.
From the London Olympic Park to Expo 2015 in Milan expert landscape designers have realized the importance of planting the best quality, fastest establishing trees, and specify only Air-Pot grown stock. Watch video
The Experts – Big Trees
The Air-Pot system is truly unique in its ability to containerize any size of tree including the very large. Sections of Air-Pot wall can be put together in any configuration making it possible to make any size or shape of container. Some nurseries are specializing in using the system to produce large high quality trees. The fantastic dense ball of roots produced by the air pruning makes even the largest trees easy to handle and plant on site. Watch video
