We offer multiple tray sizes for many of our products including 162-cell, 128-cell, 72-cell and Quick Turn 32-cell although not all sizes are available in every variety. Hellebore varieties are produced in a 72-cell and a 32-cell, Vegetative Lavender varieties are produced in a 162-cell, 128- cell, 72-cell and Quick Turn 32-cell. Our Specialty Plants are grown in our 102-cell and most Succulents are produced in a 72-cell or 50- cell. For details of all available sizes, see DETAIL page. Production Lead Times When a product is not shown on current availability section of our Liner-Bility® we look into a custom grow of that variety. Our future Liner-Bility reflects available seed, cuttings, divisions or tissue culture from all of PP&L’s suppliers and shows when the variety can be delivered in the size desired. Liner-Bility ready weeks include the procurement lead time as well. Please refer to our website for more specific instructions on how to use our innovative Liner-Bility. General crop time guidelines included in the forecast are below.

Average Lead Times per Liner Size (Plus 3 week procurement for items from Seed or URC, Plus 6-12 months for items from tissue culture or division)

32 Cell Tray--> 22-25 Weeks (40-52 Weeks for Hellebore) 50 Cell Tray--> 10-15 Weeks 72 Cell Tray--> 8-25 Weeks 102 Cell Tray--> 14-20 Weeks 128 Cell Tray--> 6-12 Weeks 162 Cell Tray--> 5-10 Weeks

Product produced from division and tissue culture Lead times for products in this range can vary between 6-12 months for PP&L to secure inputs plus grow time because stock must be built to fill each order.
