RootMaker® containers are unique, patented root-pruning containers resulting from more than 50 years of research by Dr. Carl Whitcomb. The RootMaker® System is the most thoroughly researched root-pruning system on the market and is designed to create fibrous, non-circling root systems, both horizontally and vertically, at all phases of production to equip plants for transplanting success. Our containers are not simply root packaging. They are production tools designed to create superior plants.
At RootMaker®, we are dedicated to helping our customers reach their production goals. Each customer, each geographical location, each type of plant has different needs. For example, the RootTrapper® container success story stems from the increasing need for a container that helps conserve water. Today, thanks to customer requests and continued testing of root system manipulation, we have a wide range of products that create superior plants. For years, customers have requested a larger RootMaker® container. We are now introducing our new blow-molded 15-gallon that is the first edition of larger RootMakers®.
Whether a customer is just starting out or has been using our containers for years, we want to be sure that they are using the best containers to suit their needs in order to provide superior performance and production. We often hear from customers expressing their appreciation about the quality of our products and the service that we provide.
David Thompson of Rennerwood shared, “Rennerwood, Inc. has been growing in RootMaker® containers since the mid-1980s. We have proven over the years that RootMaker® containers produce the absolute best possible root system available to our industry. Over the past 26 years we have enjoyed comparing root systems by trialing every possible root manipulation container, including copper coated containers, on the market. To date we have not found a container that comes close to producing the root system on a tree as does the RootMaker® container. I challenge any container to produce the results we find with RootMaker® Products.”
The fibrous root system increases absorption of water and nutrients which increases top growth, stem diameter, and flowers. The success of the plant is determined by how well it can use the available energy. The more energy, the stronger and more efficient the plant. Recognized as the leader of root pruning technology, helping nurseries around the world reach their growing potential, we are changing the way plants are grown.
“Whether a customer is just starting out or has been using our containers for years, we want to be sure that they are using the best containers to suit their needs in order to provide superior performance and production.”
