n.— «Ten years ago, Roger Ruske told growers, Cumberland Nurseries decided to become a supplier of “liners.” Liners is a term for immature plants or trees that are kept for a year. The nursery that grows them then sells them to another, where they are grown to maturity.» —“Growers kick the dirt during county tour” by Joseph P. Smith Daily Journal (Vineland, New Jersey) Sept. 12, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
