Catalog: Small Fruits
Fresh-picked fruit from your garden is a real treat and many small fruits are very easy to grow. Growing your own fruit can also save alot of money. And it seems that we're learning more every day about the health benefits of eating fruit. Most of the small fruits we offer also freeze well, or you can extract the juice. You don't have to just eat them fresh or turn them into jams and jellies. We offer a good selection of some of the best small fruit plants
available. Most can be grown in
hardiness Zones 3-9. Plants are shipped bareroot
(no soil or pot) and dormant (no foliage) from early April to mid
What's a "bareroot" plant?
is a term that describes how a plant is shipped to you. A bareroot
plant is not in a pot, and is usually dormant (not actively growing).
See the photo to the right that shows what a bareroot rose looks
like. The bareroot plants that we ship to you were harvested in
the fall and placed in cold storage over the winter to keep them
dormant. In the spring, we ship the bareroot plants to our customers,
from early April through mid May.
Bareroot plants are easy to grow. We include planting instructions
with your order. When you receive your plant, take it out of the
packing material and place it in a bucket of water so that the roots
are completely covered. Let the roots soak for 4 to 24 hours, then
plant it in your garden. Full planting instructions with photos
are available on our Planting
