Specimen Grower

Bare root material

for field planting or for quicker turn around as balled and burlapped specimen plants or larger potted specimens. Growers of larger sized plant material can plant our material in the fall or early spring for the next summer or fall sales, as most plants will usually fill roots to the edge of the new container in 4 to 6 months. A quick root establishment time can give you the flexibility to restock quickly any out of stock material.

Specimen trees

Are 1 ¾”-3”caliper. Grown in root control bags can be potted into boxes for quicker establishment. Material can be shipped year around (weather and variety permitting). So you can be potting during a slow time instead of waiting for bare root or ball & burlap season.

Containerized trees (Smart Pot®)

Can be potted up into larger pots or boxes for quick turn over. Also can be shipped year around.

Note: Follow the links for information on how we grow our bare root, specimen, and containers.

Re-Wholesaler

Did you know Meyer Nursery grows specimen trees and containerized material, not just bare root? And did you know our specimen and containerized material are grown in Smart Pots®? Click here for more information about Smart Pots®.

Why, you ask. Well, for many reasons:

  • A better root system – Healthier plant to sell
  • A lighter product for shipping – Cheaper to ship
  • A lighter product for handling by 1-2 persons – Cheaper to plant for the customer
  • A stronger root ball – Root ball easier to handle
  • And the pot has a flat bottom… it can stand on its’ own foot - Easier to store

Special Needs – We can Contract Grow

If a customer is asking for something you can’t find or find enough of, maybe we can help. Give us a call at 1-800-779-0440, or click here to go to the Contract section.
