What's Different?

Specimen Trees Grown in Fabric Bags

Meyer Nursery Specimen Trees are grown in fabric bags in the ground. The Smart-Pot-In-Ground® is a non-woven polypropylene fabric container for the growing of plants in the ground. This type of container has many advantages over ball and burlap (B&B) plant material.

Root System Advantages:

  • The fabric bag contains most feeder roots.
  • Roots do not circle.
  • Abundant secondary root branching.
  • 80% or more of the root system is harvested when dug.

Shipping Advantages:

  • We can dig most material year around, unlike standard B&B material.
  • Smaller root ball size equates to less weight to ship.
  • Nearly twice the number of trees can be hauled in the same space as B&B.

Specimen Tree Quality:

  • Better, healthier root system in a smaller, lighter weight root ball.
  • Ease of handling, and transplanting with lighter weight root ball requiring less equipment and manpower.
  • Fabric is tougher then burlap and will not rot when the plant is held.
  • Better root structure provides for faster establishment in a box or in the ground when transplanted.
  • Soil mix more closely resembles customer's heavier soils for better, quicker establishment.
