Northwest Horticulture (NWH) is introducing the cold-treated ‘24-Cell Tray’ for growers looking for a larger plug to plant and finish in the spring. The tray will be on offer from January 15 to April 1, and NWH offers growers a wide selection of perennial, ornamental grass and landscape rose varieties.

According to NWH, its 24-Cell Trays are grown in a controlled greenhouse environment. The trays are cooled in the same environment, eliminating the possibilities of shock to the root system and ensuring a healthy plant. The trays are then stored in 34°F coolers from February 15 through April 1 to maintain the liners’ dormancy.

The trays can be shipped through NWH’s new ‘Pallet Shipper’ delivery system that uses crush-resistant packaging that is stacked on pallets. This system allows air to circulate through the plants during shipping and is a more cost-effective method compared to boxes.

“Our customers are attracted to the planting size of our 24-cell as well as our broad offering, including grasses and landscape roses for ‘same season’ transplant into gallon or larger containers,” says Richard Gigot, NWH director of sales and marketing.
For more information on the 24-Cell Tray and delivery, contact NWH at 800-459-3142, or check their website at: www.northwesthorticulture.com.
