In the process of transplant,flowers may experience injuries from farm tools, rodents, and human manipulation. So this "golf balls" is meant to reduce contact with the roots of the plant and protect the main root system. In the process of pulling out the flowers, the stems can be easily broken. The ball has a neck so that the user can pull out the flower instead of applying a direct force to the plant's stem. What's the important, simple construction allows it to contribute economically to increasing plant productivity.
