Bare Root Fruit Plants

The basis for a rich fruit harvest begins beneath the surface in the realm of gardening and agriculture. The choice of fruit plant and its roots can have a considerable impact on the outcome for both amateurs and pros. We take pride at Moore Berries in providing a unique and advantageous choice for anyone wishing to develop their own fertile fruit haven - bare root fruit plants.

The Appeal of Bare Roots:

What Do Bare Root Fruit Plants Mean?

Bare root fruit plants are precisely what the name implies: plants sold with exposed roots and no soil or container. For a variety of reasons, this way of selling fruit plants has grown in favour, making it a fantastic choice for anyone wishing to grow their own strawberries, raspberries, currants or gooseberries from home.

The Benefits of Choosing Bare Root:

1. Budget-Friendly:

One of the key benefits of choosing bare root fruit plants is their low cost. Traditional potted plants incur additional expenditures for soil and containers, however bare root plants do not. This allows you to invest more in the quantity and variety of plants for your garden.

2. Transportation Ease:

When compared to potted plants, bare root fruit plants are substantially lighter and easier to move. This not only lowers delivery costs but also reduces the environmental impact of transportation.

3. Rapid Establishment:

Fruit plants with bare roots often establish themselves faster than potted plants. The lack of soil helps roots to adapt and spread more efficiently, resulting in faster and healthier growth.

4. Availability and Variety:

Our shop offers a wide range of soft fruit plants in bare root form. This allows you to investigate and experiment with various sorts of fruits that may not be easily available in local nurseries.

Planting and Caring Tips for Bare Root Fruit Plants:

1. Select the Appropriate Planting Season:

Plant bare root fruit plants during their dormant season, which is usually late winter or early spring. This helps the roots to establish themselves prior to the start of the growing season.

2. Soil Preparation:

Make sure your planting area has well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. This provides a great environment for the roots to grow and spread.

3. Correct Planting Depth:

Planting depth is critical for bare root plant success. Follow our instructions to ensure that the roots are properly positioned and that the plant is at the proper depth for optimal growth.

4. Fertilising and Watering:

While bare root plants are more durable than potted plants, they still need to be watered on a regular basis, especially during the early phases of growth. Additionally, follow our fertilisation schedule to offer the nutrients required for healthy development.

5. Mulching to Retain Moisture:

Mulching around the base of your bare root fruit plants aids in moisture retention, weed suppression, and temperature regulation. This simple practice will go a long way towards maintaining the overall health of your plants.
