About our container sizes

In the second half of 2012, we stopped using square 4" pots. We wanted something that looked more modern, provided better drainage and would help us continue to improve the quality of our plants. We wanted to continue using square pots because we find this helps reduce the problem of root spiraling.

We now grow our perennials, grasses and some of our smaller shrubs in square quart pots.  Most of our shrubs are grown in square 6" containers that are comparable with traditional round "gallons" (in quotation marks because they don't actually hold a gallon and are more correctly referred to as #1s).

To make things clearer, here's a comparison chart of the containers we use.  We've also included the 4" pots we used to use and traditional "gallons" that many other nurseries use so you can see how all the containers compare.
