The Benefits of Ornamental Root Balled Plants


Science and art go hand in hand at the TECNOVIVAI company. In 1984, Umberto began cultivating plants near the town of Canneto sull’Oglio, blending the fine qualities of the soil with his innovative and transplanting and potting methods. Today, sons Felice and Pieremilio work alongside Umberto, producing plants and marketing them to customers all over the world. One company speciality is its range of root balled plants. Shipping plants with the roots intact demands specialist knowledge, and the growing methods of the family are the results of much investment, over the years.


Why choose root balled plants?


Root balling does away with the need for expensive and heavy plant containers that are prone to breaking and damage during transit. This lowers the shipping cost for the company, and enables the customer to derive maximum benefit from his financial outlay, spending money on actual growing produce rather than fancy containers that may not even be to his taste. The root balls are easy to transplant, and the root packaging need not be removed beforehand, since the materials degrade naturally into the soil, during the growing process.


How to buy ornamental root balled plants


Using plants to create depth, drama and perspective in your garden is an art as much as a science. Tall, purple-hued Crimson Sentry trees will recede visually behind the pale green of the Cepee Zolla bush, or the Feathered Ramifiee in contrast to the sturdy Carpinus Betulus.
