| Frequently Asked Questions
Today's nursery customers expect nothing but
the BEST from container growers. And beyond a desire for good looking
and healthy plants, customers also demand a solid root system, ease
of plant handling and low cost.
FANNTUM CONTAINERS are
here to help grow your business!
Fanntum Containers are unlike
any other nursery container in the market today!
How are Fanntum
wire baskets provide the structure or framework of our containers
while high UV protected woven and non-woven fabrics cover the side
walls and bottom.
Fanntum fabric side walls are designed not
to stretch, thus eliminating sags and wrinkles when filled. Side
and bottom fabrics are sewn together using only high UV protected
thread that allows many years of exposure to the sun with no ill
Fanntum assembly is simple. Fabric is placed
around the wire basket and attached to the top horizontal wire with
either galvanized wire staples or galvanized hog rings. Fanntum
containers may be ordered either pre-assembled or unassembled. Visit
our ASSEMBLY page for illustrated
Why are Fanntum
reflects our "GREEN" environmentally-friendly product
which uses only 1/10 of the petroleum based plastic found in
a standard plastic pot
- Green fabric sides and a porous fabric
bottom allow a cooler soil mix temperature resulting in
faster rooting and more rapid root ball growth to fill the container.
- Green is retail friendly at the
re-wholesaler or garden center level
- Green distinguishes Fanntum containers
from traditional black plastic containers at a glance
How are Fanntum Containers
handled or moved?
Fanntum Container was designed to be both the most easy handling
and easy shipping nursery container in the market!
Nurseries can easily pick up plants using
the lift loops designed into the basket. Fanntum Containers can
be moved either by hand... or by straps or chains on a lift boom
or loader bucket.
Landscapers no longer need to pull plant material
out of a container by the trunk or struggle with cutting a difficult
container apart! They can easily pull off outside fabric and still
have a wire basket lifting structure to move or lift plants. Fanntum
Containers prevent root balls from fracturing and keep root systems
intact during planting. Lift loops provide multiple lifting or handling
options. Visit our PLANTING page
for illustrated instructions.
