Machine Balls & Wire Baskets

We strive to grow plants that are of a superior quality that shine in any landscape.  In an effort to ensure our high quality plants have solid root balls that hold up to handling and shipping, we put a machine ball and wire basket on many plants that are traditionally hand dug.  Some examples are in the photos below.  We believe you will agree that the extra effort and cost we put into the package pays off with your customer’s satisfaction.

tsuga canadensis
This 11’ Tsuga canadensis has the typical fullness, feather and shape of our 5’ to 12’ trees.
taxus densi
The wire basket consistently allows our Taxus to hold up very well in a holding yard and perform great when planted.
thuja emerald
Our Emerald Green arborvitaes have plenty of width. They are in a 24” ball to give you an idea of the fullness of the plant which will require fewer plants in your hedge.
snow queen
These Hydrangea que. ‘Snow Queen’ in a #10 are field grown for two years before they are bare rooted and potted in early spring. You are getting field grown quality in a container that is second to none.
saturnalia
Itea vir. ‘Saturnalia’ #10 will make an instant hedge. These plants have a mature height of 4’ and width of 5’. They can tolerate clay soils and wet conditions.
pallet
When we dig material it is handled one time to load onto the pallet and once again when placed onto your truck. We move the plants around on pallets to hold the integrity of the ball.
max pink
Rhododendrons have a small root system that can be damaged easily while handling. We put our larger Rhodies in baskets to increase your success.
Arctic Fire
Cornus stol. ‘Arctic Fire’ #10 have great winter color, hardy to zone 2 and is just one of the many Proven Winner selections we grow.
