 Example of 18-24" #1 bare root (Cornus florids)

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.

Trees are an important group of native plants for wildlife in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, with 87% utilized by wildlife populations in the area.

Species of wildlife include Maple (Acer spp.), Birch (Betula spp.), Oak (Quercus sp each of which produces high-energy, nutritional seeds or nuts. Some native tree species are good nectar and pollen sources for pollinators, in addition to providing food from the subsequent fruit development. The Sugarberry tree (Celtis occidentalis) for example, produces berries for songbirds and other wildlife and also serves as a larval host for butterflies. The flowers of the Pagoda Dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) attract a variety of pollinators, while the berries produced by that pollination service provide sustenance to 64 species of wildlife, including 43 bird species. Neotropical migrant birds depend on fruit resources along their migration routes through the CBW, including pollinator-friendly trees such as Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida), Wild Cherry (Prunus serotina), and Common Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana). The Downy Serviceberry (Amelanchier arborea) provides ample flowers and pollen resources to attract pollinators, and is used by 58 species of wildlife, including 35 bird species that rely upon its fleshy fruits as a vital early summer food. Black Willow (Salix nigra) is a preferred food for Ruffed Grouse (Bonasa umbellus) and Pine Grosbeak (Pinicola enucleator). - Source- USFWA-NAPPC
