PRT Dryden grows all species planted in northwestern Ontario, neighboring provinces, the state of Minnesota and other northeastern border states. The nursery offers a full range of standard seedling products and related nursery services, including:
- 1+0 and 2+0 container-grown seedlings
- Nutri-plug™ seedlings (contains controlled-release fertilizer)
- Christmas tree liners
The nursery specializes in two types of container-grown seedlings:
- Seedlings for summer planting. Grown in custom programs that provide well-conditioned seedlings, these plants are ideal for summer and fall planting as either 1+0 or 2+0 crops.
- 2+0 container seedlings. The moderate climate, consistent snow cover and our ability to generate artificial snow create a perfect environment for 2+0 seedlings. These well-conditioned, robust seedlings are economical and provide excellent value, especially for sites subject to vegetative competition and/or snow press. They are typically used on productive sites as a replacement for bareroot seedlings. We also offer 2+0 seedlings grown at other PRT nurseries that have favorable climates for overwintering.
