What is a Bare Root Fruit Tree?
Bare Root Fruit trees are fruit trees sold with no dirt around the roots. They are only sold during dormancy which is typically January and February in our Sonoma County climate. While they are easier to plant than most container trees they do take a little extra care. You must keep the roots covered so they don’t dry out. You can do so by covering the roots with bark or soil when they get home. Some people even use wet newspapers. This process is called healing in. Whatever your method is, the key is to get the trees into the ground as soon as possible and keep them covered with a moist medium before you plant so they don’t dry out before you plant them.
