Description: The best type of container is a function of available nursery equipment, the species of plant, and the conditions at the outplanting site. Conifer species can be grown in relatively small containers whereas large-leaved hardwoods require larger containers. Seedling customers prefer smaller containers for moist outplanting sites, but demand larger, deeper containers for harsh dry conditions.
