Details & Features
Our brand new 15 cell Ellepot/Proptek propagation sleeve and tray growing system for trees and shrubs.
This tray is packed full of the latest design features to ensure an incredibly natural root system and the very best plants possible.
The 15 Cell Sleeve and Trays is designed to hold an 80mm Ellepot. The benching tray holds either 15 shallow (4in’s) Ellepots or 15 sleeves that hold a deep (8in’s) Ellepot. The sleeve slots easily into the tray and is easily lifted out manually or mechanically for grading and spacing etc.
One of the key concepts with the Ellepot/Proptek system is how compatible with automation it is. Serious time and money efficiency savings can be made throughout the whole growing process, right from filling, to sorting & grading to shipping out of the door.
80mm is the perfect size for fruit trees such as apples and pears, grapes, landscape trees and all shrubs. If plants need a larger root ball or more spacing, we have an 8 Cell Sleeve and Tray system.
The Ellepot supports the growing media and holds it together whilst the roots are growing, meaning they can be moved or transplanted far sooner than in traditional systems. The sleeves support the plants in their early stages and stops them drying out too fast. The inserts are held in such a way that also allows enough air movement for great aeration and drainage and fantastic ‘air pruning’ of the root system.
Once the trees are grown to the desired size, the Ellepot insert can be removed, packaged and sent to the field or customer without any plastic leaving the nursery, helping to ensure trays never go missing. For more information on Sleeve and Tray growing environments click here.
The tray comes in four versions: with feet, with lugs, with feet and lugs or the plain tray. Foot version allows the tray to be raised off the ground away from standing water to allow air to better flow around the base to help air pruning and reduce disease. The ‘lug’ option enables the tray to easily be guided on a ‘T’ rail benching system.
Very good for grapevine propagation as alternative to the Proptek 28 cell Pot in Frame if you wish to use the Ellepot system.
