Pre-Ordering Bare Root: What, Why, How

What is Bare Root?

A bare root plant has been dug up from growing in the ground. Upon arrival to our nursery, plants are placed in a mulch mix to keep the roots covered and protected. A bare root plant is in its dormant state, and has not been container grown.

Why Pre-Order?

Pre-ordering bare root means greater selection to choose from, certainty that you’ll get what you want, and no fuss when they arrive.

Not every variety on our availability lists will arrive in January. But if you pre-order, then we can add the variety you want, and you’ll have peace of mind while waiting for it to arrive in January.

Buying and planting bare root means:

    • Great low pricing compared to container stock.
    • No heavy pot to lift – Easy handling.
    • Plants won’t be root bound.
    • Plants will not have experienced heat stress like many container plants are subject to.
    • The soil is soft to dig into during winter.
    • Planting in winter will give new plantings time to get well established before summer.
