Sustainable U Programs
Sustainable U: Bare Root Plants for Edible and Ornamental Gardens, October 26, 12-2pm, Margie Edinger Room
Fall is the time to plant bare root plants. Bare root plants come in their dormant state as just the bare wood. There are many benefits to buying bare roots – they are less expensive, you can find many more varieties than what is generally up-potted by nurseries, and there is usually less shock to the plant when planting from bare root. Please come and listen to Master Gardener Roberta Barnes to learn about planting bare root trees, shrubs and perennials.
