Bare Root Perennials

Bare root perennials are plants that are grown in open ground. They are presented with no soil or compost around the roots, and very little top growth. These plants are dug up ready to be planted in the colder dormant season between November and March and will burst into growth and life as the spring and early summer occur.

Why plant Bare Root Perennials?

Bare root plants, as with lots of rhizomes, tend to be more cost-effective than pot-grown plants, and often also present a more established and larger clump of roots, which will continue to develop over the winter, giving the plant a real boost of growth as the weather thaws.

Once you’ve bought your bare root perennial, you can plant them out if the winter is particularly mild, or plant them into pots to grow them on, and plant them out in the spring – this makes it easier to look after the young plants and means you can move them if required to protect from frost.

Planting them into pots also promotes root growth in softer compost and protects the young plants against weeds, pests and so forth. You can then harden them off before planting them out in the spring.
