Ornamental Trees

Long cycles

Gutter systems are a growing trend in ornamental tree cultivation. Saplings are planted in a substrate mix in March or April and transplanted into the ground in September or October. With the right growing solutions, ornamental trees can do really well in a nursery environment where they usually stay for quite some time.

Grading your trees

Growers will grade the young trees on the development of their crown and roots. But in general, the wider the trunk, the more the tree is worth. Once they reach the right size they can be sold or transplanted again, this time into 20- to 60-liter containers.

The best mixes

To thrive, the young trees require an airy mix, rich in calcium carbonate. The best mixes will buffer enough moisture in dry weather, disperse irrigation water evenly, and prevent waterlogging in case of heavy rain.
