Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR GROWING, PLANTING AND TRANSPLANTING PLANTS
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUR FAIRE POUSSER, PLANTER ET TRANSPLANTER DES VEGETAUX
Abstract
(EN) A container or tray (10) for growing, planting and transplanting plants, which has a plurality of growing compartments (13) arranged in adjacent rows (12). Each growing compartment (13) is formed by four walls (14, 16, 18, 20). An air opening (24) is located adjacent to each wall (14, 16, 18, 20) of each growing compartment (13). The walls (14, 16, 18, 20) of the growing compartments (13) are offset at a non-right angle with respect to the major axis of the tray. Air slits (50, 52) are formed in the walls of the growing compartments (13). The bottoms of the growing compartments (13) have openings (40), each with a pair of ledges (42, 44) adjacent thereto so that the root ball of the plates may be aerated while holding the plants within the growing compartment (13). The center-to-center spacing between adjacent growing compartments (13) is the same throughout the tray (10).
(FR) Un récipient ou plateau (10) permettant de faire pousser, de planter et de transplanter des végétaux comporte une pluralité de compartiments de pousse (13) disposés en rangées adjacentes (12). Chaque compartiment (13) est constitué de quatre cloisons (14, 16, 18, 20). Un orifice d'aération (24) est situé adjacent à chaque cloison (14, 16, 18, 20) de chaque compartiment (13). Les cloisons sont décalées selon un angle non droit par rapport à l'axe principal du plateau. Des fentes d'aération (50, 52) sont formées dans les cloisons des compartiments (13). Le fond de ces derniers comporte des orifices (40) pourvus chacun d'une paire de moulures (42, 44) adjacentes, qui permettent d'aérer la masse racinaire des plantes tout en maintenant celles-ci à l'intérieur du compartiment (13). L'écartement de centre à centre entre les compartiments adjacents (13) est la même pour tout le plateau (10).
