Ingram, 1993 ; Ruter, 1997 ). Neal (2003) found that the highest temperatures occurred during the late summer and early fall in northern New England, causing root death late in the growing season. Pot-in-pot (PiP) production systems were developed in

( NASS, 2007 ). Pot-in-pot (PIP) production is an increasingly popular component of the overall container production trend. Because PIP plants are grown in containers, they are lightweight, easy to harvest, and root systems are not disturbed by digging
