Specifications / dimensions
Nativ by Plantrite grow and supply plants in different size pots and containers. Here’s what you can expect to see arriving at your door:
Forestry Tubes – A great value option for establishing a native garden. Plants will arrive in pots that are 50mm across the top x 120mm deep. Actual plant height may be between 5-15cm depending on the species. A lot of local species are grown in containers of this size.
68mm – A small square pot that is 68mm wide by 95mm deep. Actual plant height is similar to those supplied in forestry tubes (5-15cm).
140mm – Plants supplied in this size provide a great way to achieve an established looking garden, quickly. The pot size is 135mm wide x 140mm deep. Actual plant size would be around 10-20cm, depending on the species.
175mm – If you are looking for slightly more impact, these are the ones for you. The pots are 180mm wide x 175mm deep. Actual plant height will vary, but typically will be between 15-30cm.
63 cell tray – One tray, holding 63 individual plants of the same type. Average plant height 5-10cm, depending on the species. Ideal for revegetation projects or mass plantings.
Each plant is in a cell, 40mm wide x 90mm deep. The plants can be easily extracted for planting. A great value solution when you need to plant out larger areas. Ensure plants are well watered after planting until established – as these smaller cells can dry out quickly, especially in warmer weather.
Please note, that plants supplied in this container must be ordered in multiples of 63. Sorry, we can’t mix and match different species within the same tray.
30L – Now you are getting serious! These plants are grown and supplied in 30L pots which have two handles to make lifting easy.
