 Plantas de terra seca - Dry land plants

We grow our plants in...

Small well developed young plants with excellent deep roots


We can produce plants in special fibre pots ready to plant  straight into the ground without disturbing the roots

Plants have their roots air pruned while growing in the nursery


This produces a strong compact plant with an excellent well developed root system. Tough plants for tough sites


Fibre pots are 1,2  litre square 19 cm deep - there is no need to remove the pot

Well developed young plants with excellent deep roots!

Why produce plants in these pots? With our fibre pots the plants go straight into the ground thus avoiding “transplantation shock”. We only use natural low nitrogen fertilisers, coir and compost substrate, this mixture together with the fibre pot gives excellent penetrability to water.

While growing in the nursery the plant roots are naturally entwined in the fibre and pruned by the air. This builds up a dense protected root system. Like our open grid pots, this action also prevents roots from spiraling. The pots are made from virgin wood fibre and do not contain any additives.

These fibre pots are totally bio-degradable in the soil so we (and you!) have no plastic wastage or re-cycling responsibilities.


  • Avoid transplant shock  when planting

  • Plants are young and vigorous, not root bound

  • Pots are deep and prevent spiraling root growth

  • Completely bio-degradable, no plastics involved

Please note - fibre pots are only available as an advance order


Compact tough little plants with well developed root systems

For the best root growth we offer plants in deep 19 cm by 10 cm square 1,4 litre anti-spiral grid pots

These compact young plants are grown outside in the sun, wind and rain - the way they live in the future. Most of these plants are only produced for one season ensuring they are young and vigorous which helps them establish quickly in the garden.

Roots allow a plant to absorb water and nutrients from the surrounding soil and a healthy root system is key to a healthy plant. Our grid pots also have deep root anti-spiraling indentations in the wall that guide the roots downwards and naturally prune them as they come into contact with air. This creates a much denser fibrous root system within the pot. This system produces strong healthy plants with a much better chance of survival when planted out.

  • Compact plants with excellent root to shoot ratio’s

  • Plants are young and vigorous with deep healthy roots

  • A wide range of mediterranean dry land species

  • Completely bio-degradable, no plastics involved

We do not use any pesticides in the production of our plants

Return our pots to us and we will re-use them again and again - no plastic waste
