Bareroot Seedlings

Bareroot Seedlings

Bareroot seedlings are the most economical planting stock for large planting projects. They are the best performers in open field plantings where competition is high.

Bareroot seedlings are lifted from the fields, and sold dormant, without soil surrounding the roots. They are generally only available first thing in the spring after frost has left the ground, when handling and planting stresses are minimal. 

Guide to Age and Stock Types:  *Age is expressed in years.*

  • Seedbed Production: Numbers only; densely seeded and grown in the same location. ie. 3+0  indicates a three year old seedling.
  • Greenhouse Transplants: Expressed as either a P (plug) or G (broadcast), plus length of time grown in the field. ie P+1.5
  • Field Transplants: Numbers only; the first indicates number of years in a dense seedbed, the second is number of years transplanted. ie. 2+2 is a four year old seedling.

The minimum order is 100 seedlings, however this can be a combination of species ie. 20 Highbush Cranberry 2+0, 20 Red Osier Dogwood 1+0, 60 Chokecherry 2+0.


Please Note: Any orders placed are done based on the assumption that it will be filled if the stock is available, which includes weather, inventory and factors beyond our control.
