Bare root trees are dug and stored without any soil around their roots. Growers protect the roots by wrapping them in damp hay, mulch, or newspaper and then covering the roots with plastic to ensure they stay hydrated. Then, these trees can be boxed up and shipped far and wide. 

Trees can be bought “bare root” and then planted directly into the ground. There are numerous advantages to choosing bare-root trees or roses – including enhanced varieties and quicker plant establishment. 

While it may seem intimidating, you can have greater success than traditional nursery containers by following a few basic steps.

  • Advantages of bare root fruit trees
  • When is the best time to plant
