Bare Root Season is Here! Now through March 31, Christianson’s Nursery, 15806 Best Road, Mount Vernon. January through March is bare root season at Christianson’s and that means big savings on trees, plants, and shrubs for your garden, including fruit, flowering and shade trees, hydrangeas, lilacs, cane fruit and some herbaceous edibles such as strawberries, asparagus and rhubarb.
To plant; dig a hole twice the diameter of the root system and no deeper than its length. Make sure the graft union, down at the base of the stem, is several inches above the soil. Break up and loosen the soil before replacing it around the roots.
Ask one of our Nursery experts about how to properly condition and plant a bare root tree or shrub while you’re here.
