What Are Bare Root Trees?
(And Why We Love Them)
Most often, when I go to a nursery or garden center, I go home with a trunk full of potted flowers, trees, and shrubs. (I know, I'm a little but of a plant nut.)
But what about bare root trees? What are they? And why even bother?
These are trees that are dug out of the ground without soil around their roots. The roots are wrapped in damp hay, sawdust, or an different medium to keep the roots dark and damp, but they are not covered in soil like potted plants.
Why do we love them so much?
