French term or phrase: en C10, 80/100
[Supply and planting of] Pistacia lentiscus en C10, 80/100
and Pistacia lentiscus en C20, 80/100
and Pistacia lentiscus C50, 80/100 pour formation en topiaire
also a Pistacia lentiscus, 1/2 standard "en C140"

Trachelospermum jasminoides en C30, 200/250 (plantés tous les 70 cm)

I 'm not sure what the "en C" refers to: I think the 80/100 means around that number for the given location.
Does the "C" mean height in cms.?
Sorry if obvious...

These plants are in pots with a 10cm diameter and are 80/100 cm in height. Apart from the 'en' the rest stays the same in English

Further to this I've discovered that the C actually stands for 'container' and the number is the size in litres

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you Kate - much appreciated.

Asker: If you see here, I think the 2nd number refers to plant height - what do you think? http://www.boultons.co.uk/tradeonly.php

Asker: Oh, that's what you meant too - I misread your note to Liz.

agree  liz askew: =10cm diameter container...

  -> Thanks, Liz, but in fact I think it's actually the volume of the container, see my last note. It also makes more sense given the size (height) of the plants.
