Bareroot & Potted – What Is The Difference?

15th September 2021

When placing an order, it’s important to know the difference between potted and bareroot.

Potted plants can be sold and planted all year round (you don’t have to wait). If you want to give a tree to someone as a gift and they want to plant it as soon as possible, potted plants are your best option.

Bareroot plants can only be sold from late October to early April.

However, you pay less for bareroot and you can plant them more easily. For bareroot you have to dig a small hole for the tree, but with potted you need a hole that’s big enough for the entire pot.

Bareroot trees also use less water and fewer fertilisers than potted plants.
