Re: Air Root Pruned Seedlings can jump start acorn production

I saw what you mean on the seedlings I bought this year. While the root ball is small, there are dozens & dozens of fine roots on each and every one. Should also greatly help with first year survival.
I was impressed enough with those root pruning nets the root system is in I've been doing some searches on the web regarding it.
Found one place selling such nets & some funny "root trapper" pots.
Would planting seedlings started in your netting into a 5" wide root trapper netting be worth the added time & handling? Would a larger size of netting be better instead?
Got this idea to late to try with the seedlings I ordered this year, but interested in regards to maybe giving this a go with trees I order next year, or perhaps for a fall planting.
