Introducing Jiffy Preforma Plant Plugs

Gulley Greenhouse is proud to introduce our new Jiffy Preforma Plant Plug media. A Preforma plug is a natural combination of coir and peat, held together with a unique binding agent. The binder gives the plug an airy quality which encourages strong root growth, and is guaranteed to hold the plug together during handling and transplanting. Because there is no loose fill, there will be less mess, less transplant shock, and fewer losses due to the root ball falling apart during shipping.

As with any specialized growing media, the Preforma plug requires different watering and care than you may be used to. Please follow the recommendations below to ensure your success:

  • Open boxes immediately to remove trays of young plants
  • Check water moisture and thoroughly water if necessary
    *Using a wetting agent when watering is helpful to keep the plugs hydrated until transplanting
  • Transplant into the finished container as soon as possible.
    *Make sure to push the plants from the bottom of the tray to reduce root damage. Never pull plugs out by the foliage.
  • Water the finished container thoroughly and start on your appropriate fertilizer program.

Young Plant Sizes

A Size for Every Need

Since every grower is unique, we offer multiple tray sizes to give you options based on your specific needs and preference. Almost every annual and perennial variety on our list is grown in a 98-cell tray, with many perennials having the option of 200-cell, 72-cell, and 32-cell trays as well. Geranium and Begonias are available in 102-cell trays (in 3 strips of 34). Happy Hour mixed annual combination liners will be grown in a large 50-cell tray (with three cuttings per cell).

As always, we are happy to custom grow in any size tray at your specific request with enough lead time.

As finished growers ourselves, we have been experimenting with different sized trays throughout the years. We think this assortment of sizes spans the many needs that you, the finished grower, encounters every season. We appreciate any feedback you might have about our sizes!

What Tray Size is Right for You?

  • SAVINGS ON FREIGHT
    For our customers that regularly purchase 72-cell trays, the 98-cell liner is very close to the same size but contains 26 more plants per tray. This will add up to a huge savings on freight!
  • MASS PRODUCTION POTENTIAL
    For our customers that regularly purchase 128-cell trays, we are excited to offer 200-cell tray. This makes major economical sense for growers that are producing larger quantities of 2.5” to 4” finished containers. Almost all groundcover varieties we list will be offered in the 200-cell size, perfect for planting into cell packs with a quick turn-around time.
  • RAPID FINISH OPTION
    Consider a 32-cell liner if you are looking to finish a gallon or 2-gallon pot quickly without as much growing time. Our 2.5” large liners have been bulked and cooled and will finish a gallon in 4-8 weeks depending on growing conditions.
  • INCREASED PLANT HEALTH
    Compared to a 128-cell tray, our 98-cell size has better airflow and more soil volume per cell, offering the benefits of a larger plant with a more vigorous root system.
