Weather in Winter
The 2019 season gets going with our three-day Bareroot Sale.
We are looking forward to seeing you all again!
As always, during this sale, all bareroot nursery stock is sold at 25% off the regular potted price. The sale includes most of our ornamental trees, fruit trees and shrubs. In addition, some of our small fruits and roses come bareroot and are also 25% off the regular price.
The Winter High School Band members will be cooking up brats on the grill outside. If we are lucky they may play a tune as well. Please make sure to visit for a bite while shopping for bareroot trees and shrubs. The proceeds from their brat sales will help fund their band trips during the season.
We have found that bare root plants thrive when planted in the cool spring weather. They are also much easier to handle than container grown plants!
They can be stored safely for at least a week provided they are kept moist and cool. Please ask our staff for more care information and for our handouts, which we believe you will find very useful. Our staff is also available to answer any additional questions on planting and pruning, or choosing the right plants for your location. An expert from Bailey Nursery will also be on hand Thursday morning.
In addition to the wide selection of bareroot plants available, there are many trees and shrubs that are available in containers only. These include all of the evergreens and a few other trees and shrubs. In the catalog, any nursery item listed without a 'Ct' in the column will be for sale as bareroot at the sale. After April 28th everything will be potted up in containers.
Even though it may still be a little cool outside, the greenhouses are already full. New plant introductions are making their debut. New varieties, new colors, improved hardiness and garden performance along with better disease resistance, and more controlled habit, are some of the reasons you'll want to choose these plants for your own gardens. If you do purchase something, just keep in mind it may need to be kept in a warm area until the danger of frost is past.
