Bareroot Season is an amazing time!

This is an amazing time of year when the weather gets chilly and plants are going to sleep. Dormant plants like berries, roses, fruit trees, and shade trees may not look like any more than a twig with roots, but they have some tremendous potential!


The term “bare root” is given to dormant plants we bring into the nursery this time of year without any soil around their roots – hence they have bare roots! Bareroot is done only in Winter because this is when these plants go dormant – not requiring much water or nutrients and can stand to be out of the ground for a little while. Be Careful! They still have to be watered to keep the roots moist! At the nursery, we keep the roots buried in moist sawdust so they don’t dry out.




These are some of the plants we have in bareroot:
Roses Over 250 varieties!
Fruit & Nut Trees – Over 125 varieties!
Shade Trees Berries, Veggies and Grapes!

Did You Know? Bareroot Trees & Shrubs are watered a little differently after planting. When planting your bareroot tree or shrub, you’ll want to give it a heavy heavy watering (like you’re planting it in mud). After that, DON’T water it again until you see about 2″ of new growth.

Don’t freak out when we start pruning away at your bareroot fruit or shade tree! We are doing your plant a favor! By pruning your tree now, we are encouraging more root development – an essential thing for your new tree.
