Bare root plants are a very successful, inexpensive way to plant. Most bare root selections cost 50% less than potted varieties and are easier to move and plant. We also guarantee all bare root plants through the growing season.
Bare root plants are sold dormant and can be planted as soon as you can dig a hole in the ground. The roots are exposed (not potted) and must be kept moist until planting occurs. Because of the nature of bare root plants, they are only available in the early spring and sell out quickly.

Bare Root Information
Dormant bare root plant material is a very successful, inexpensive way to plant, however it is only available during a short window in the spring. You must be ready to pick-up your selections and plant them as soon as possible after you take charge of them. Planting can happen as soon as you can dig a hole in the ground.
The sales period for dormant bare root plants is only in the early spring. Pick up dates and in-store sales are determined by weather and may change due to spring conditions.
We recommend preordering for guaranteed availability. Payment by means of cash, credit card or local check is required at the time of order.
Plant availability is subject to prior sales, ability to hold stock dormant, and crop condition. Other bare root plant material not listed may be available as a special order in certain quantities.
Items are of grade and true to type (as well as can be known). We select varieties that are best suited for our zone and growing conditions. We have a lot of plant information available on our website - much more detailed than the short descriptions listed on this document.
Customer pick-up is required. Delivery by our truck within the region may be arranged for a separate fee and depends on a few factors like order size. We do not ship plants via mail services.

Recommendations for Planting Bare Root
Thank you for buying bare root trees and shrubs from Hanson’s Garden Village, LLC. You have made a wise choice. A bare root selection offers affordability, ease of transport, and great selection. Follow the instructions carefully and look forward to enjoying your plants for years to come.
When not planted immediately, place plants in a cool, shady location and keep roots moist. We recommend planting them as soon as possible not to exceed two weeks of proper storage time.
Soak plants in water (may be augmented with a root stimulator) for a few hours or overnight before planting. Do not let roots dry out. Do not soak for more than 24 hours.
Dig a large enough hole so the roots of your specimen are not crowded. This would also be the time to mix in any compost or soil amendments, if needed, with the soil from the hole. Trim damaged roots, or roots that will not fit into the hole.
Create a small mound at the bottom of the hole. Place the plant on top of the mound and spread the roots out evenly. Adjust the depth of the hole if necessary. Look for a stain line on the stem to judge planting depth.
Back fill soil, perhaps adding a slow release fertilizer. Create a shallow basin around the stem, water and mulch. The root stimulator water used for soaking may be used to water the plant.
Check plants regularly for water and be patient as they adjust to their new location. Some plants take a while to leaf out. Water frequently at first.
A winter tree wrap is recommended to protect young trees from rodents and winter sun, put on in fall – remove in warm weather.
