How Ferns Looks We Ship                        How They Will Be in Spring      


Our Bare Root Fern plants gets the same treatment as our perennials, we spray with wiltproof (if there's any foliage which should be very little if any) and then dip in Terasorb and package in plastic bags and put granular peat moss ove them also. We dig and ship same day and hold no longer than the day after they are dug to ship a fresh product.


We've included a picture of the shrubs packaged in terra sorb gel (roots dipped) and surrounded with mositure rich peat moss.The picture on the left is how we ship them (in dormant season without leaves or blooms) and the picture on the right shows a finished product once it's planted, cared for the following spring. Why pay 90% more for containerized plants when you can purchase bare root stock in the dormant season and have the exact same results?



How We Prepare Our Bareroot Stock In The Fields


Our equipment is taken to the fields with large tubs of Terra-sorb, dig your plants fresh in the fields, dip in terrasorb and take directly to the shipping warehouse and ship out the following day. We do not leave bare root plants in the cooler like alot of other nurseries, we dig our stock fresh and ship it. This insures not only you getting quality nursery stock but it also guarantee them to live when you receive them and plant them right away.






              How We Pack To Protect Your Plants








Every plant we ship is dug fresh a day prior to shipping. We dig your plant stock, take to the shipping warehouse and dip all roots in a moisture gels called Tera-sorb, Surround Roots with peat moss  or in warmer months we use straw so the plants will not overheat in transit then wrap in heavy mill plastic and containerize in corogated pressure protectant cardboard boxes.We band every box as well as tape for no transit damage.


            What is Tera Sorb?


Available in Fine, Medium, and Coarse Grades Terra Sorb is a super absorbent, potassium based co polymer gel that significantly increases the water holding capacity of soil. It absorbs up to 200 times its weight in water and slowly releases it to nearby plants.



Significantly increase water holding capacity of soil • Prevent plant losses due to dry soil • Slowly release water into the root zone





Wetland Plants & Live Stakes


If you have a pond, lake or large trough, place the roots of the plants in water and they will be fine for literally days until planted. make sure if using your own container that  you keep fresh water, do not allow it to get algea or stagnated. Change water every 3 days. When submersed in a pond or lake, nothing is needed to be changed, simply put roots in and the will actually grow while being stored until planted.








Seeds must be put in a dry area or placed in a refrigerator until planted. you also may want to check with your local USDA to see how a particular seed stores best. Diffrent zones and climates depends on best ways to store.



Freshly Dug Plants Is How You Will Receive All Bare Root Stock

We dig our perennials then take them to our shipping warehouse and spray with wiltproof and then dip in terrasorb gel. Both are transparent and you can not see it but when you feel of your bulbs, you will know the inside is in superior health being soft full of moisture and pliable. We then wrap the roots or place in plastic zip lock bags, for a short shipping period of 3-4 days the plastic seasl in the moisture which is further needed for transit and we also sprinkle super rich peat moss ground up like potting soil over the roots so they will not get too much moisture for shipping.








How To Store Bare Root Plants Until You Can Plant Them




Trees & Shrubs (Including Fruit Trees, Berry plants, Native Plants also)


When you receive your trees or shrubs you will need to open them right away and remove the plastic from the entire plants with exceptions to the root area.


Bare Root Trees & Shrubs really needs planted within 1-2 days after receival but there's other methods in case your time is limited for fast planting. if you have a cool moist area as a basement or garage, leave them standing upright and leave plastic around the root system and water good a couple times a day (roots only). When you plant, it's always best to soak the roots well, put water in the hole before planting ( to add moisture in the deeper part of the soil before planting ) and water again after planting. It's also advised to water each plant the first 4-5 days after it's planted and they should do well with Mother Nature's Care after this. Its also advisable to use a good fertilizer ( no recommendations) in the Fall so when the spring comes again, yuor trees & shrubs will be beautiful and ready to thrive in growing & blooming.




Perennials, Ferns & Ground Covers


When we must store perennials, ferns & groundcovers, we use a 38-42 degree cooler. Some nurseries use this year round and the plants will be fine for long periods of time without planting. This keeps them dormant. Also if your order is a small one and you have a crisper drawer in the bottom section fo your refrigerator, pleace them in their bags in there. its a perfect temperature for these type plants. they are also not very big when shipped because there's no foliage so you can put quiet a large quantity in there. if you do not have room for storage, put in your basement, garage or cellar and remove from bags. put potting soil over them and lightly mist  with water every couple days until you can plant them.




Wetland Plants & Live Stakes


If you have a pond, lake or large trough, place the roots of the plants in water and they will be fine for literally days until planted. make sure if using your own container that  you keep fresh water, do not allow it to get algea or stagnated. Change water every 3 days. When submersed in a pond or lake, nothing is needed to be changed, simply put roots in and the will actually grow while being stored until planted.








Seeds must be put in a dry area or placed in a refrigerator until planted. you also may want to check with your local USDA to see how a particular seed stores best. Diffrent zones and climates depends on best ways to store.







Bareroot Trees is an affordable Way To Landscape For The D.I.Y Gardners






Planting bare root plants, perennials, ferns & trees not only ships inexpensive, it also enables the customer to buy at a fraction of the expense as containerized stock.We also are able to ship our bare root plants fedex, ups or us mail for alot less whereas if you purchased container trees, you would be receiving the exact same plants, only paying for a plastic pot and soil and paying ten time the freight as shipping bare root nursery stock.






Trees & Shrubs Ships in The Dormant Season (Sept-April)- All Other Catagories Ships Year Round


Trees & Shrubs when bare rooted can not be shipped in warmer non dormant months. The shock factor is too great. We ship our bare root plants, shrubs and trees during the months of September- April. When these are shipped in the dormant (leaves have fallen off) stage, the success rate is better than 93%. We also put in 4-8% extra plants at no additional cost to insure your stock lives to it's 100% full potential.


We ship Wetland Plants, Ferns, Perennials, Ground Covers, Live Stakes and Native Plants Year Round. They are bare root also but these type plants does not have a shock rate like trees & shrubs that are bare root.




Cooler Weather Is The Prime Time To Plant Trees & Shrubs


When plants & Trees are dormant (leaves have fallen off and it's frosted and they are still for the winter) is the best time to plant your shrubs and trees. They do not suffer shock of being uprooted, shipped and transplanted. They will stay dormant in the ground and be ready to grow the following season. As long as the temperature is above 31 degrees, it's safe to plant bare root trees & shrubs. If you receive your stock and it's not at least 31 degrees, hold them plants until the temperatures warm up a bit. When temperatures exceed 58 degrees, trees & shrubs tries to loose their dormant stage and start budding out to grow, so cooler is best for any type trees or shrubs. Some think Fall & Winter, most think Spring. We've been in this over 54 years. We know it's tough on bare root plants to be dug and transplanted in the spring after April 15th because they will suffer some degree of shock because they are "waking up" loosing dormancy and then have to start growing. Cooler weather & temperatures is the prime time for anyone to deal with bare root trees. Plus the success rate is excellent.



Planting bare root plants, perennials, ferns & trees not only ships inexpensive, it also enables the customer to buy at a fraction of the expense as containerized stock.We also are able to ship our bare root plants fedex, ups or us mail for alot less whereas if you purchased container trees, you would be receiving the exact same plants, only paying for a plastic pot and soil and paying ten time the freight as shipping bare root nursery stock.

Planting bare root wetland plants

Do you know how to plant a bare root wetland plant? A wetland plant is a plant that is either grown in the water or around the edge of the water (swamps are included. A "bare root" plant is a plant that has been grown in a field or in this case a pond or such and dug out of it the day of shipment. These plants are a little bit more difficult to plant but can be done. Here are some simple instructions.

1. First you must determine where your pond, wetland area, or individual plant is going to be placed. The area that you determine should be surveyed for certain qualities. Such as water levels, (if it is just a wetland) soil moisture, sunlight, ph levels, and other contributing factors.

2. Selecting your plant- The next thing to do is to select what plants can grow in that specific area. From that list of plants you should pick a plant to buy.

3. Go Shopping! - Make sure that you don't just go and buy the first plant you see. There are (more than likely) hundreds of stores that sell the plant. Look around until you find a good deal (check out TN Nursery for some good deals). Then buy it.

4. Plant health-When getting your plant you should fully inspect the plant for damage. The list of damage includes insect infestations, breaks or tears in the plant, massive amounts of yellowing, and other serious damage signs.

5. Planting-For the plants that are wetland plants dig a hole twice the size of the plants root ball. The plant should be placed in the hole with fertilizer and then filled in, water immediately afterwards. For pond plants a simple burying of the root into the mud will be sufficient.

6. Sit back and relax, and watch your plants grow. (That is if you maintain them)


Planting Live Stakes


Live stakes, like all plants, need soil, water, and sunlight. The best species to use for live stakes are willows and red osier dogwood, because they are easy to grow and have excellent root strength. Black cottonwood can also be used, but cuttings from this species do not grow as consistently well. Live stakes should be planted in areas that will remain moist throughout the growing season, such as along the water line on streambanks or in wetlands. Follow the instructions below to make and plant your own live stakes.

  1. Cut stakes from long, upright branches taken off the parent plant. Typically, lives stakes should be between 18 and 24 inches long and at least three-eighths of an inch in diameter. Follow the guidelines suggested in the ethics of plant collection (below).
  2. Make a straight cut at the narrow end of the stake (toward the tip of the branch). At the thicker end (toward the trunk) cut the branch at an angle, so that it makes a point. This way you will know which end is up and it will also be easier to drive the stakes into the ground. It is important to plant live stakes with the correct end in the ground; otherwise they will die.
  3. Remove the leaves and small branches from the stakes as soon as possible after cutting them, to keep the stakes from drying out.
  4. Dip the top (blunt cut, narrow end) 2-3 inches of the stakes in latex paint immediately after they are cut. The paint not only marks which end is up, it also seals the exposed cut end and helps prevent drying and cracking. You can also use different colors of paint to color code different species of cuttings, planting times, and other treatments. The paint will also make the stakes visible once they are planted so people won't trip over them.
  5. Plant your stakes within 24 hours for best results. In the meantime, keep them moist and wet in buckets or wet burlap sacks. On hot days, keep them in the shade until you plant them.
  6. Soak or dip the bottom ends of cuttings in a solution of plant rooting hormone before planting to speed up growth (you don't need to use rooting hormone for most willows or red osier dogwood. These species have incipient root buds ready to go and will root immediately.)
  7. Drive the stakes into the streambank or wetland soil at least one foot deep (the deeper the better). Leave three to six inches above ground surface so they can sprout leaves. At first, the stakes will survive by rooting, but eventually leaves will sprout from the exposed end of the stakes.
  8. Drive stakes into the ground with a rubber mallet to avoid damaging them. Use a planting bar or length of rebar to start the hole in hard soils.
  9. Use long stakes at least one-half inch in diameter when planting in riprap (rocks). The longer, thicker stakes will survive heating and drying better than smaller diameter cuttings.
  10. Use longer stakes and leave one-foot sticking above the ground if the stake will be shaded by surrounding vegetation. If a willow stake gets too much shade, it will drop its new leaves and die. If the area you are planting will be heavily shaded, use a more shade-tolerant riparian species such as salmonberry. Bear in mind, however, that salmonberry stems dry out more easily.
  11. Keep the whips! (The slender twigs snipped off during stake cutting.) Whips will grow nicely if they are planted in very moist areas at the edges of streams and wetlands. Push them into the ground as far as they will go without breaking.

Go to and type in our zip and your and you can calculate the mileage times 3.00 per mile to get a close estimate of freight.If you think the freight is feesabe (usually with our prices on full loads it is) and want to order, please fax us your order to 931-692-4266 along with a return fax, name and delivery address.
