THE ADVANTAGES OF ROOT CONTROL AND ROOT MAKER BAGS
Plants grown in root control and root maker bags are healthier and grow faster than container grown stock.
Containers are more susceptible to problems of inadequate or excess water and fertilizer.
Roots often circle in pots.
Plants grown in root control bags and root maker bags have fibrous roots.
The tough fabric of the bag prunes the root structure so shock is reduced when the tree or shrub is transplanted.
90% of the plant’s root structure remains intact in the bag.
Traditional field digging can cut away too much of the root structure.
At the nursery it is easier to keep bagged stock from drying out or tipping over than containerized stock.
