Potted trees and shrubs
Potted trees and shrubs require growing media with a good bulk density, to stabilize the container, and a good aeration/drainage capacity for overhead irrigation. Bark-based mixes work well for this application, but it is important that the growing medium selected does not dry out too fast. PRO-MIX® BRK and BRK20 are bark-based growing media that have a higher bulk density and good aeration/drainage characteristics for containerized trees and shrubs. The combination of peat, processed pine bark and perlite holds an adequate amount of water and provides for a good rooting environment for outdoor nursery applications.
Horticulture Specialist Troy Buechel talks about the sphagnum peat moss ingredient used in our PRO-MIX professional growing media and its benefits for your crops.
