PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!
There are several factors why we must ship immediately:
ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS
When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.
While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.
AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from their plastic bag, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, covering their roots with sand, dirt, sawdust or wood chips (do not use cedar that is toxic to the trees) and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.
Rubus idaeus var. strigosus
Cane berries prefer a deep, well–drained, fertile soil and typically bear fruit on 2–year old wood with everbearers producing on first–year wood. They thrive in most soil types. Cane berries are versatile and hardy in the coldest climates where other fruits fail. Plant late winter to early spring. Space 2’–3’ in a row with 8’–10’ between rows.
I received 5 healthy canes promptly that were packaged thoughtfully and planted them the same day. I am confident they will thrive because all 5 had great root systems and were full of green buds. I am very happy with the customer service as well because they called to ask to change the shipping method to get the plants here quicker for no extra cost to me! I will be ordering my plants from here from now on because I know I am getting quality with protected,correctly packaged materials.Review by Ashley (on 4/21/12)
I have 6-7 different varieties of rapberryin my Napa CA garden box. While they all did very well, the Fall Gold was the favorite of my wife and myself. The berries were large, sweet, firm, and abundant, lasting well into the Fall. Evenings would find us standing around the berry patch enjoying their sweet flavor.<br />After losing their leave to the cold December nights, the Fall Gold rasperries produced the stoutest canes of all my raspberries. I am ordering more even as I type.Review by Hammerinhank (on 1/6/12)
