Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In Spring 2000, a series of trials was initiated to determine if the fiber pots with holes can be planted, and how this technology might be used by nurserymen and landscapers. The experiment compared untreated (without copper amendment) containers with coppter treated pots containing only drainage holes, circular holes, or vertical slits. Hemerocallis 'Catherine Woodbury' and Forsythia 'Meadowlark' were compared. Results indicate that pots can be successfully planted either to the landscape or to the next growing environment.
