NATSPEC are the natural specifications of the way a tree is grown and how it may look. Most people in this industry have their own thoughts/beliefs on this matter. Here are Daly’s, we have come a long way to ensure that we are keeping up with the NATSPEC guidelines.
We like to ensure that our trees are not just meeting this standard, but exceeding it, and this starts out from our seedlings/cuttings being graded and root pruned. This procedure is then continued through the production line, until the plant is in the required size for sale.
Along with root pruning at each stage of potting, we also ensure that apical tips of trees remain intact (where practical) and this is ascertained through our pest and disease spraying; water shoots are removed; and the plants are pruned in accordance with these guidelines as well.
In conjunction with root pruning, and general pruning, we use several different types of Controlled Released Fertilizers (CRF), as different plants have different nutrientional requirements.
