 Selecting bare root plants offers advantages over container grown plants in a number of ways, bare root plants are normally much less expensive than container-grown plants, are easier to inspect for damage or disease and weigh less when considering shipping and handling.  Utilizing bare root allows easier transport to planting sites and requires less material. This also means less waste in terms of container debris.

If handled and planted properly, bare root plants grow just as well as those grown in containers. Keep in mind, because the roots are bare, they dry out very quickly and it is important to get them planted as soon as possible after buying, or store them correctly until ready for planting.  Directions for proper storage, transplant and planting are included with your order.

Bare root plant material can be planted any time the soil is not frozen but before a plant is in full flush. Planting bare root is not recommended May-September (once a plant has "flushed" in spring or before dropping leaves and going dormant in fall).

The native plants we grow and sell are nursery propagated from seed, cuttings and division of "parent" plants located on our own nursery properties or partner local sources.

 Our plants are never dug from the wild.
