Care & Cultivation
6. Care and Cultivation of Bare Root Plants
These are grown in nursery beds on open ground. This ensures that the young plants will have had the benefit of unrestricted root growth and so will have a more vigorous root system when you receive them than pot grown plants of the same age. They will, therefore, tend to grow away and become established much more quickly once replanted. Bare root plants are despatched when they are dormant. However, the roots will be strong and healthy and the plants will soon start into growth again once they are planted out, watered and the warmer weather arrives.
