Our packaging method
Containers and pots are essential in our Dutch nursery to ensure that any type of plant is available all year round. The type of pot changes depending on the type of plant. The packaging of plants is a very important factor in order to allow their safe transportation not to compromise in any way the possibility of rooting and plant quality. You can find more information about our packaging method below.
Packaging for the growth and transport of plants
After harvesting, our plants are ready for delivery in September. It is also possible to have your order delivered in the spring. Both the condition of the plants and the storage climate are monitored daily. Great attention is paid to the packaging of our conifers, deciduous shrubs, hydrangea, perennials fruit plants and grasses with the aim of avoiding dehydration and the breakage of the roots. Our greatest importance is its use in the package to retard the loss of moisture from the plant.
