Hortus Loci is a new nursery based in Hampshire, which is sourcing the highest quality stock of all sizes – from annuals to semi-mature trees – for prestigious landscape projects, Chelsea show gardens and well known landscape architects and designers. They are containerising rootballed stock in Air-Pot containers, and buying in Air-Pot grown stock from other Air-Pot customers in the UK and Europe.
Le Salon du Végétal à Angers est le rendez-vous plus important du secteur de l'horticulture professionnelle en France. Avec environ 640 exposants et plus de 16.000 visiteurs professionnels, cet événement annuel est un must pour les végétaux.
In light of close association with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh as a course lecturer and consultant on a new venture in Oman, Jamie Single was invited to submit a paper on the importance of developing a good root structure for the establishment and healthy growth of trees & shrubs planted in the landscape.

The Air-Pot growing system, adopted by Santa & Cole Forestal, was awarded 2nd prize in the best non-plant product category at the SPV (Plant Garden and Complements Fair).

The new Trafalgar Square Maze has been hitting the headlines.
Part of the famous Central London landscape turned lustrous green overnight with the installation of mature hedging grown by Northamptonshire based Rentahedge. The company grows mature hedging for permanent planting and temporary schemes using Air-Pot troughs, specifically designed for the production of consistent and vigorous hedging to create an instant impact and re-establish instantly in the landscape.
The plants grown for the Maze were Prunus Rotundifolia and they were delivered to site in purpose built metal planters. Other hedges for such mazes are Buxus Semp and Thuja Plicata.

Significant gains can be made in terms of quality and environmental impact through the study of plant stress dynamics. In the root environment, for example, containers with punctured side-walls promote ‘air-pruning’ of roots as a result of stress; a technique that is increasingly being accepted for woody, nursery-stock plants.
