True Quart Container Plants
(actual container size 3 5/8" X 6")

Our true quart containers are square with open bottoms to promote superior root formation.

We find this size produces a nice size plant that gives great value. It is basically a condensed 1 gallon size plant that can more safely and economically be shipped via common carriers.




Why square you might ask? There are a couple prime reasons.

1) It forces roots downward instead of circling the container which takes place in round containers.

In addition our containers help the plants produce additional fibrous roots that feed and support the plant. This is accomplished by a process called air root pruning. The end result is the plant is better equipped to successfully transplant and take off thriving.

2) It's a more efficient in shipping. We can ship you three of our true quart size plants at the same price of shipping a single gallon plant or a single true quart for that matter.
1 gallon containers in comparison are 6" deep or sometimes 7" deep in the root zone which is the same as our true quart at 6".

These true quart plants are typically pruned to a grade of top growth that is 7-12" wide and roughly 7" high from top of media line. This promotes healthy growth for a well rounded plant in a true quart of media volume; containing a more advanced root system that gets shipped and is ready to take off in a healthy manner when you receive it.

Un-pruned this grade is about 12"-24" wide, and high of top growth depending on the plant variety. Pruning is necessary here in the nursery for young plants to produce a quality specimen with the added bonus of reduced shipping stress.
