Air Pruning

Roots obviously grow downward. Every nursery tray has only a round drainage hole at the bottom of the cell. Roots hit the bottom of the tray and circle around and around that hole.

The Winstrip Trays' unique bottom design combined with AirStrips stops roots from circling even if the plant is overgrown. It is all about that Winstrip shape at the bottom of the cell. It holds in soil and air prunes.

Air Pruning

The Large Winstrip Shape that extend across the bottom of the cell not only make it easy to remove starts but air prune the roots preventing root circling. Thus Transplants can be left longer in the tray if needed. Transplants are also healthier and grow quickly when transplanted.

Lifetime Use

Each tray weighs in at over 1.7 pounds. They stack and nest for easy storage. They are made with thick UV resistant plastic of the highest quality to last for many, many years. I have had mine for 20 years and they still work great.

Open Cell

Winstrips open cell design allows more air which creates a healthier environment. Each cell has vertical air spaces and Airstrips where air can flow around each cell. More importantly these slits extend all the way to the bottom corners of the cell. This creates healthy starts with much less disease.

Filling a Winstrip Tray

Bottom Trays?

Bottom trays are a great addition to water Winstrips from below. Our indestructible trays are the best made.

Unlike regular flimsy vacuum formed nursery trays, Winstrips do not require a bottom tray for handling. Winstrips can be moved around easily with one hand.

For farm scale use in Greenhouses, Winstrip Trays can be used directly on vented tables to get the best air circulation.
