Growing Container Seedlings: Three Considerations

The science of growing reforestation and conservation plants in containers has continually evolved, and three simple observations may greatly improve seedling quality. First, retaining stock in its original container for more than one growing season should be avoided. Second, strongly taprooted species now being grown as bareroot stock may be good candidates for container production. Third, miniplug seedlings that combine growth in containers followed by bareroot culturing may be a way to improve bareroot bed density and shorten production cycles. This paper was presented at a joint meeting of the Northeast Forest and Conservation Nursery Association and Southern Forest Nursery Association (Williamsburg, VA, July 21–24, 2014).
