    Blame it on society! I don't remember if this was written up in American Nurseryman, or The Digger, but somebody sued, and it is now unlawful to sell a "2-gal" containerized plant unless the container can be proven to hold 2 gallons. Etc for all the sizes. So the new industry recommendation is to use #1, #2, #5, and so on. Apparently the whole problem started with #1's, which can have quite a wide range of shapes and sizes. Go figure.

    Welcome to Landspro, Ralph! There are many, wonderful, caring and knowlegeable poople here, and I was interested in hearing the answer!!

    Thanks, George and Susan, and thanks Ralph for the good question!

    Our most popular pot size here is the 1 gallon trade size, and I was curious... Obviously, it takes less soil to fill a trade size than a full gallon, but buyer's don't seem to notice the difference. They simply state 1 gallon perennials, etc....


    Thanks to ALL! I learned on this one....
