These are trees that are grown in the ground at our nurseries around Leicester and lifted upon order (during the lifting season). They will be supplied, as the name suggests, bare-rooted (no container around the roots). The main advantages of bare-root trees are;

  1. They are by far the cheapest method of purchasing your trees.
  2. They are the easiest method to transport and plant.
  3. They have a high survival rate after planting.
  4. They are readily available in a vast variety and quantity during the lifting season.
The main drawback of the bare-root method is that the plants are only available during the lifting season (November to March), as this is when they are dormant and can be successfully transplanted.
