Air-Pots for Expo 2015

For the Italian readers amongst you here is very good article in Flortechnica magazine about the use of Air-Pots for the growing of the trees for Expo 2015 in Milan

In the article Benedetto Selleri Ph.D, landscape project manager of the EXPO 2015 talks about the choice of the Air-Pot system and the advantages of using it for such a big project, where precise characteristics have been specified for all the plants.


Battle of the Biscuits

On our stand at the recent IPM show at Essen we gave away  Scottish shortbread in Air-Pot tins. However Italian Air-Pot nursery Sironi who specialise in growing Acers out did us with their biscuits in the shape and colours of Autumnal Acer leaves!

News from Kew

News from The Royal Botanical Gardens Kew who use the Air-Pot system for everything from seed propagation to  large trees. They have recently had great success with a new slightly taller  Air-Pot® for growing root stocks for grafting.

“The deep narrow Air-Pots® are working brilliantly  for us, we use them to grow our root stocks  for grafting. By using them we are ensuring plants the best possible root systems for grafting onto, which really helps produce a top quality tree.”

Jamie recently visited with clients from Europe and was bowled over by the stunning plants being produced in Air-Pots over a huge range of species.
