Complete Package Program

The Complete Package Program was created last season knowing plants in branded PROVEN WINNERS® pots sell better. That’s because when gardeners see plants in these authentic white containers with the recognizable variety tags, they’re confident knowing they’re buying the best plants on the market.

What’s new for this year? 

EASIER CONTAINER ORDERING

To better align with growers’ production needs, we’ve simplified the program for 2023 and added more flexibility. Containers can now be ordered at any time and any quantity.

The new FlexTag Option gives you the flexibility to reduce the number of tags you receive with your liner orders. Perfect for those growing combination recipes or putting multiple liners in a single container, our Complete Package Program FlexTag Option gives you the opportunity to decide for yourself how many bundles of tags you receive.

Container Details

Superbells Grape Punch

Injection molded containers have been available for a long time. In this manufacturing method, molten plastic is ‘injected’ into a mold, allowed to cool slightly, and the containers are ejected from the mold. This very precise manufacturing method creates the best tag-lock system for PROVEN WINNERS® stake tags. The thick walls of the containers are strong and rigid but will crack if flexed too much particularly in cold temperatures. Injection containers are generally recognizable by their large rim at the top.

Surefire Cherry Cordial

Coex or coextruded containers became available more recently than injection molded containers. In this manufacturing method, rolls of flattened plastic are fed through a die where it is stretched into shape. This creates containers that have smooth, thin walls and are much more flexible than injection containers– Coex pots tend to crumple and crush rather than crack. Coex containers are most recognized by the rolled lip at the top and are gray or black on the inside with a white exterior.

ColorChoice 3gall container

Blow molded containers are known as ‘nursery cans’ and have been used by perennial and shrub growers for many years. These containers are manufactured by clamping a mold around a balloon of hot plastic while air continues to push the plastic into the final shape. This process evolved from glassblowing. The end container has thin, flexible walls and is recognized by the dimples along the bottom of the container. PROVEN WINNERS® blow molded containers are white on the outside and black on the inside similar to coex containers.

Superbells Tropical Sunrise

ECO+Grande™ containers are a new option for growers and retailers. The PROVEN WINNERS® ECO+ Grande™ is an industrial compostable garden pot, made from PLA (polylactic acid). PLA is comprised of starchy renewable plants like corn, switchgrass, and sugar beets. Starch from these materials is processed into a biopolymer that looks, acts, and performs like traditional plastics. The ECO+Grande™ manufacturing process is similar to injection manufacturing and creates thick, heavy walled containers. They are easily identified by the pull tabs on the sides to be removed by consumers prior to planting the entire container in the garden.
