How Big is a 3 Gallon Plant?

Three gallon plants have a root ball around 10 or 11 inches. These shrubs are usually 1 to 3 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide, but this varies depending on the type and variety of plant. Low growing spreading plants tend to be shorter and wider. While upright shrubs and trees tend to be taller, but more narrow. Flowering bushes like azaleas will be rounded and as tall as they are wide. Dwarf plants tend to be on the smaller side because they grow slower above ground and to a smaller mature size.

Why Purchase 3 Gallon Plants?

Three Gallon shrubs are more mature than 1 gallon bushes, often by a couple of years or more. These plants have a more developed root system and sturdier thicker trunks and branches. 3 gallon bushes can be almost twice the size of the same plant in a 1 gallon pot so you get quicker color and impact than you do with smaller plants.

What are the Dimensions of a 3 Gallon Pot?

A 3 gallon plant pot is going to be between 10 and 12 inches wide and tall. 3 gallon planters tend to be about the same height and width, but it does vary with the pot style.

What Size Pot do I Need to Upgrade a 3 Gallon Plant?

You should plant most of our bushes and trees in the ground for the best results. But for plants that grow well in pots, like dwarf citrus trees, houseplants, Japanese Maples, Drift Roses, and Knock Out Rose Trees, up-pot to a container no more than twice the size of the current pot. We recommend a plant container size around 5 gallons. This means the pot you choose will be around 12 to 14 inches.

What Plant Container Sizes Do You Have?

We carry 1 gallon, 2 gallon, and 3 gallon nursery pot sizes in shrubs, plants, and trees. Our larger trees come in 3, 5 or 7 gallon pots, but these are usually categorized by height. On occasion we carry small specialty perennials in quart pots.
