Roots Equal Fruits!

Soon is the season for bare-root trees and brambles. Blueberry, blackberry, apple, pear, pomegranate and more–these edible yet beautiful woody plants do extremely well in our area as bare-root cultivated crops. Order them now for the best selection, and plant them in early January. Two of our favorite sources are Farm Supply (in San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles) and Bay Laurel Nursery in Atascadero.

Bare-root trees and brambles are grown throughout the year and their roots nurtured and supported. Then, as the plants go dormant, the dirt is gently removed from the root ball, exposing robust and ready growers that are ready to be planted. Come springtime, the plants’ well-established rootsystem will provide you with a happier, healthier fruit and flower production.
