Seedling ready for transplant
Planting bare root plants can be very intimidating if you’ve not done it before. Luckily, you have us to help eliminate the anxiety of planting bare root. At a glance, bare root plants do not look like much more than a stick with some ‘hairy’ roots hanging from them, but if given the chance they can transform your yard into a beautiful green-filled paradise.Bare root plants are dug when they go dormant for the year and have stored nutrients for the winter.  This dormancy period allows the plants to be stored in special warehouses so that they can be shipped to customers at the proper planting time for their area.  Due to the fact that bare root plants have no soil or containers, they can be shipped more efficiently.  Furthermore, this cuts down on the labor that has to be put into each plant.  These two factors lead to big savings by buying bare root plants instead of container plants.

Remember that bare root plants are a sensitive product with no protection for their exposed roots.  Due to this, it is important to plant the plants within 24 hours of taking them from the nursery.  If this is done, the odds of a successful plant are far greater.  It is also important to take and plant bare root plants before they break dormancy.
