Bare-Root Fruit Trees

Bare-root fruit trees can be ordered now and have it for planting season.  Bare-root fruit trees are considered the best way to buy a fruit tree because it is a great bargain. However,  it seems different to plant a tree with roots not contained in soil, it’s actually an excellent practice that boasts immense success. Many bare-root trees, in particular grafted fruit trees, have already been growing for two years before they’re sold, and it ready to grow once planted.

Experts say bare-root trees frequently take off more quickly than containerized ones because roots aren’t transitioning from container soil to local soil. Bare-root trees are planted during dormancy, which gives them weeks of root growth that spring-planted container trees lack.

How to prepare your planting area for your fruit tree?

Prepare a planting place for your tree that receives full sunlight for 6 to 8 hours each day.

Prepare an area for your tree that is at least 5 feet (1.5 m) in diameter and 1 foot (0.3 m) deep and apply nutrients to the soil. Note that this is the area around the hole and not the hole itself.

Ensure that the soil can properly drain; you can test this by digging a hole that is 30 inches (76.2 cm) deep and filling it with water. The water should drain approximately 2 inches (5.1 cm) in 2 hours.
