So, we’re ordering plants and seeds. What are we ordering?
Bareroot stock is now available for early spring planting. This is the best way to find fragrant, antique rose varieties. These simply aren’t sold in nurseries anymore. Edibles like raspberries, asparagus, rhubarb, and young fruit trees are also available as bareroot stock.
What does bareroot mean? No soil or pots. The plants are wrapped in wet newspaper or shavings and shipped during cool weather. It’s best to plant immediately or to pot up with fresh potting soil if in-ground planting is not possible.
Seeds are selling quickly this year as the home gardening craze continues. Remember that almost all native wildflowers can be winter sown, and in fact, require freezing and thawing temperatures in order to germinate.
