Bare root trees and shrubs offer several advantages, and now is a great time for planting.
No pot. No soil. No fertilizer.
Here are a few good reasons to opt for bare root trees and shrubs:
Without a pot or soil, bare root plants create no waste, plus they’re lighter weight, so less gas is required to transport them from farm to nursery.
Since transport costs are lower, bare root plants typically cost less.
Easier to handle:
The lack of soils makes bare root trees much easier to lift and maneuver. A definite back saver!
Quicker to adapt:
Because there is no soil around the root ball, bare root trees and shrubs have no trouble interfacing with the soil in your garden.
