Bare root conifers and fruit trees – perfect for afforestation and large hedge garden plants there is usually with three different root packages: container plants throughout the year available and have an extremely long period of planting. There is also the likelihood that container plants, grow close to 100%. This high quality and flexibility due to the comparatively high price of container plants. As a second root packaging, so-called bail is very common. Bail is garden plants with a bale of Earth which either with a fleece or fleece, and a wire mesh secured the ball of soil around the roots. Especially in spring and autumn, bail is available and offers an attractive price-performance ratio for many garden plants and conifers.
The third type of packing of the root is root naked. However, only deciduous plants as bare root goods are available (deciduous hedge plants, deciduous trees, and fruit trees). Bare root plants are extremely cheap, but you also must take some limitations in purchase. Bareroot conifer and deciduous trees and shrubs are only available when the hedging plants and deciduous trees and shrubs have lost the leaves, so most only at the end of October / beginning of November or mid-April in the spring. Beyond bare root fruit trees and conifers must be planted immediately after the delivery, because through the missing Earth no nutrients and water are the garden plants available. Also, bareroot fruit trees and conifers need quite a long time at the new location to adapt with a relatively high failure rate.
Despite these supposed disadvantages of root naked garden plants, bare root hedging plants and fruit trees for many applications are ideal. Just if you need large quantities of shrubs or conifers, the price of bare garden plants is the main argument for their procurement. Typical usage scenarios are afforestation of shrubs or trees or the investment of large hedges. Of course are suitable bare root hedging plants and fruit trees for garden enthusiasts who still want to plant a beautiful hedge with a limited budget. These gardeners have to wait then maybe slightly longer on the complete privacy, but after a few years, you can see no more difference in the leaves of deciduous shrubs for hedges, whether the origin plant bail or was root-naked. For example the hornbeam (Carpinus Betulus), European beech (Fagus sylvatica), or also the copper beech (Fagus sylvatica purpurea) are some examples of the popular deciduous deciduous hedge plants that are root-nude available in November. With the proper planting and care nothing is so against bareroot conifer and deciduous trees – if one is aware of the limitations.
