Bare Root Hedges (November to March)

Bare root hedges are shrubs or trees that are sold without soil around their roots. They are typically sold during the dormant season when the plants are not actively growing. The roots are usually wrapped in a well-secure bag to keep them moist and from drying out during transportation and storage.

Planting Bare Root Hedges

  1. Choose a location with well-draining soil and full sun or partial shade, depending on the specific needs of the plant variety
  2. Prepare the soil by loosening the soil to a depth of at least 12 inches and mixing in compost or other organic matter to improve the soil structure.
  3. Dig a hole that is large enough to accommodate the roots of the plant without crowding them.
  4. Carefully remove the plant from its packaging and gently spread out the roots in the hole.
  5. Fill in the hole with soil, making sure to cover the roots completely. Tamp down the soil gently to remove any air pockets.
  6. Water the plant thoroughly to help settle the soil around the roots and to encourage root growth.
  7. Mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

It is a small, evergreen shrub that is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. It is commonly grown as a hedge plant or for topiary because of its ability to be trimmed and shaped.
