Slot Pots We have now started using a new type of pot with many of our trees, and these new containers are called 'slot pots'. This type of pot is much better than conventional containers because it is specially designed to stop the roots from spiraling in the pot, and thus preventing them from becoming pot bound. The air slots encourage roots to grow in a different way by 'air pruning' them through the slots, so when the roots grow outside of the pot they become dehydrated which results in them producing more of the finer fibrous roots inside the pot. The increase in the fibrous roots means that the trees can soak up more water and more nutrients, which encourages growth. We are using slot pots with the majority of our larger trees and we are gradually replacing all of the conventional pots with the new slot pots.
This week we have the highly popular Betula Pendula as our garden tree of the week, so make the most of this special offer whilst it lasts. This tree is best known for its distinctive silver peeling bark and its diamond-shaped dark green leaves which turn to orange and yellow before falling. The main branches of the tree grow upright and the smaller branches become pendulous and weep downwards, which makes for a very attractive structure. With autumn on its way, you will be able to see the leaves turn from green to orange and yellow, then watch them fall to reveal the beautiful framework and glistening bark.
