    Our newest product, Plantable Peat Pot, has us pretty excited!

    Canadian Hemlock Plantable Peat Quart

    The peat pot has many benefits to the plant and to the grower.

    • They are fully biodegradable, made from a natural and renewable resource.
    • The pot improves root aeration.
    • There is no transplant shock.
    • Increased water retention as the peat pots are extremely absorptive, retaining water for later plant use directly in the root zone.
    • And the grower benefits from lower labor costs (no pot to dispose of and simplified planting) and vigorous growth.

    Example of our Super Potted Liners

    Faster Crop Rotation is the #1 Reason Professional Growers Choose Vans Pines Super Potted® Liners.

    Our Super Potted Liners begin with A/G® Jiffy Plugs transplanted into 1 or 3 gallon containers. They are then grown up to an additional year and a half longer, allowing the plug’s superior lateral root system to greatly expand in the larger container.

    These unsheared Plug+1 Potted Liners are suitable for container growing and field planting. As with all newly planted stock, proper weed control, irrigation and watering is still required.

    The plants roots remain intact during shipping, handling and planting, allowing for immediate establishment and a faster growth rate!

    Many of our growers claim they can market their crop an average of 2 years faster – reducing production costs, lowering crop loss risk and increasing profits.
