This 32 cell container holds 32 individual 50mm diameter Ellepots.
A 50mm wide Ellepot is the perfect size to start propagating many fruit trees, and also larger landscape trees. It is also an excellent substitute for those trees grown in plastic bags – even though the container volume is typically smaller. This is because the root system is far superior than when grown in bags, meaning a smaller root system can support a much larger tree.
This size of Ellepot can then be easily stepped up to a Jumbo Ellepot (Such as 100mm or 120mm). The optimum height Ellepot for this container is 90mm, though Ellepots taller than this can be used if required. The Ellepot inserts are held in such a way that also allows enough air movement for great aeration and drainage and fantastic ‘air pruning’ of the root system. The tray also keeps the plants raised off the ground away from standing water, to allow air to better flow around the base to help air pruning.
Once the trees are grown to the desired size, the Ellepot insert can be removed, packaged and sent to the field or customer without any plastic leaving the nursery.
