Ball Horticultural Company recently introduced a new plantable container, My Easy Planter.
The container was designed to save time for consumers and reduce transplant shock on plants. It can be planted directly into containers as a ready-made combination, and the slotted design allows roots to grow into the soil. My Easy Planter also works as a carry tray for 4-inch pots or Ellepots. A version made from biodegradable rice hulls is also available and holds seven pots or Ellepots.
