  • SpringRing®/Airpot

The SpringRing® is a patented cultivation method by the Ronneby tree nursery in Australia. It entails cultivating the shrubs in a black plastic ring with a strong textured surface. The roots are directed into outwardly pointed open ended cusps, thus preventing further growth and air pruning the tip of the root The plant’s response to air pruning is to send out more roots, leading to the build-up of a dense, fibrous, outwardly pointing root system whilst preventing spiralling. This means the plant is able to establish quickly and safely during once transplanted. Bruns offers a diverse range of woody plants in SpringRing® as well as in XXL sizes.
