Bare Root Forestry & Hedging

What is bare root?

Bare root plants are only available for sale from November to March as this is when they are dormant. They are a much cheaper alternative to pot grown plants and are very commonly brought for hedging. They have no soil on the roots so are very light and easy to handle – but also need to be planted as soon as possible as the plant is still alive, and the roots need to be kept moist.

Advantages of Bare root:

 Much more cost effective – especially if you are planting a large area
 Much easier and cheaper to transport
 Only planted in winter, so low maintenance after planting
 Greater selection of varieties – more varieties are grown bare root
 Plants are dormant in winter – always the best time to transplant any stock
 Excellent for wildlife
