What are bare-root plants? Bare-root plants are grown in open ground before being prepared for sale during the dormant winter season, and delivered in bags with no soil around their roots. Some shrubs come as bare-roots, but typicaly it is hedging plants and small trees. If you are looking to install a Beech hedge for example, sourcing and planting them as bare-root specimens over the winter is the way to go. The season for both bare-root plants varies slightly from year to year, but is usually from November till April.
What are rootball plants? Rootball plants tend to be larger, and are delivered with their roots and soil encased in a biodegradable hessian bag. As with bare-root plants, these represent a more cost-effective way to plant, and are better for the plants themselves as they are in their dormant season. The season for both rootball plants varies slightly from year to year, but is usually from November till April.
