Root strips are created when rows of plants are planted closely together, usually into and along a straight, narrow trench. The sole purpose of growing them like this is so we can provide ‘instant hedges’.
When they are fully grown and ready for selling, they are lifted out of the ground in long narrow lengths called root strips. This is because the roots of each individual plant have grown along the trench into and around each other to create a strip full of their roots. These root strips can be lifted in various lengths from 50cm up to 250cm.
