Testimonial Eureka

"We have been using the Ellepots for around 5 years now.  Initially it was just for propagation and our smaller cuttings.  We now use the jumbo sizes to step up rooted cuttings in Ellepots.
We use all sizes – from the 209 trays right up to the Jumbos.
We have found that the Ellepots allow us to produce our plants not only faster but at a higher quality than in traditional potting or propagation medium.
The service and communication from Proptec is outstanding.
We highly recommend the Ellepots to any nursery.  It has been an invigorating and enlightening product for us!!!"

Congratulations to Brad and Sally Skinner for having the foresight and vision to set up Proptec, the company. Ellepot products and trays plus the Quick Plug range will change the way we propagate in Australia. I have and will continue to use those products as the results far out exceed my existing processes.
