Benefits of Bare Root Fruit Trees:
There are many advantages to purchasing bare root fruit trees. SummerWinds bare root fruit tree nursery offers a wide selection of trees, particularly in the springtime. We pot your tree in a biodegradable fiber pot using the best soil which complements our native soil giving you higher success rates when transitioning your tree to the ground. Bare root fruit trees are also lighter, and less costly, to ship than trees that come with heavy soil attached to the roots. You can also create your own Backyard Orchard Culture by planting an assortment of fruit trees close together and keeping them small by pruning in the summer. This Backyard Orchard Culture allows you to maximize smaller spaces while still providing a consistent harvest of tree-ripe fruit.
Bare root fruit trees are planted in biodegradable pots and are available early spring through early summer.
