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.

“Fantastic roots, better plants, better cropping. I can get it all from an Air-Pot®.”
Florida organic farmer Lyn Steward can harvest tomatoes continuously for seven months.
“You hardly ever have a failure and if you do it usually means someone either didn’t water the tree, or they drowned it”
Steve McCurdy – Majestic Trees
The Air-Pot system is truly unique in its ability to containerise 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 specialising 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.
The versatility of the Air Pot® wall has allowed the development of a whole new approach to the growing of root stock trees. The raised suspended troughs give you all the benefits of growing with the Air-Pot system, at the same time as allowing greater comfort working with the plants, and easy mechanisation of harvesting.
