Amherst Nurseries grows shade trees, flowering trees, and shrubs for the wholesale trade.  We grow trees both in Grow Bags and B&B, while most shrubs are produced in containers.

Why do we use Grow Bags?  We feel that they best solve the problem of girdling roots and buried root flares, the two leading causes of tree mortality in the landscape.  Grow bags are designed to eliminate root circling/girdling and because they are only 12 inches deep, it is nearly impossible to have problems with buried root flares.

The Universities of Massachusetts and New Hampshire jointly studied grow bag production, publishing their results in American Nurseryman and in videos online.  Visit this page for more information.
