Peters Lawton’s Rocket Pot and Rocket Rack System

Peter’s Lawton’s Rocket Pot and Rocket Rack system is an incredible new innovation in nursery systems.

I believe the Rocket Pot system is incredibly innovative, and the best nursery tree growing system that I have ever come across anywhere in the world. This system is something that I support because the trees grow healthier and more quickly, and with an abundant root zone. The roots actually grow in an untangled form, rapidly, in full sun, without the need for shade cloth or extra irrigation systems.

Rocket Pots can be used anywhere in the world with a minimum amount of water. It is an incredibly water efficient system because the racks can be flooded, and the water can be returned to cycle through the system again where there is a shortage of water.

Watering times are easily calculated in that water quantities relate to the weight of the pot, and the amount of water in the pot gives the clear indication of when the trees need to be flooded again. If we are growing productive fruit trees or productive trees, they can be fertilized with good nutritious compost tea or organic soakage water. If we are in an area where we don’t need to return that water to the tree nursery watering system, then we can then pass it on to the next growing system in growing beds or crop beds.

The Rocket Pot and Rack setup is a simple system. The ultimate result is that from seed to successful tree, the percentage of trees that live and become high quality, well-formed and successful trees is the best that we have ever seen anywhere. It is not so important to plant trees if a large percentage of them do not become successfully grown or are failures. It is crucial to grow trees that can be planted and become high quality mature specimens.

With this system we can confidently put our efforts into reforesting the world.

Peter Lawton’s Rocket Pots are a success, and are ready for production. This system is a system we need to support.

I encourage anybody anywhere to support Peter Lawton and to put orders in now for Rocket Racks. This is an important initiative that we need to support globally.

  1. I just took delivery on 150 of these, and the design is brilliant. If the theory is correct, then we’re looking forward to an ongoing annual supply of 150 trees, ready to rocket out of the ground!

    Peter’s a very nice guy and very helpful on the phone. I encourage anybody rehabilitating a bit of our Earth to seriously look into these.
