GardenWeb Glossary of Botanical Terms �
Search results for: �band yielded the following:

field strip cropping
lawn edging
press straps (syn. web straps)
strip cropping

That all they list for the term "band" so my question is: What are you folks talking about when you use the term band to describe new plants?

RE: Please define the term "Band" for roses

Hi Toolbelt, its the pot size. A band pot is used to root rose stem cuttings. The "pot" is a rectangular, plastic sleeve. The rooted cutting is one stem, generally the size of a pencil. Some vendors supply slightly larger cuttings. The positive is... low shipping cost and a wide variety of roses available.
