Benefits of transplanting

  • Bushier Appearance: Trimming the roots and tops during transplanting results in the growth and development of new branches, making the plant bushier, fuller, and visually more appealing
  • Stronger Immune System: Forces growth of fibrous lateral roots, increasing the surface area for nutrient and water absorption, leading to healthier growth, improved resilience against environmental conditions, and enhanced defense against diseases
  • Improved performance: Creates thicker foliage that acts as a protective barrier against strong winds, sunlight, and noise pollution. Benefiting wildlife by providing a more secure shelter with increased food availability.
