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.
Strawberries are extremely adaptable and are grown in every state in the U.S. Plants generally grow 6”–8” tall and 12” across, are shallow–rooted, and benefit from mulch such as straw, pine needles, or plastic. Prefer a soil rich in all the basic nutrients with a pH of 6–6.5. Susceptible to root rot and must be planted in well-drained soil, with crown set at soil level. Yield under the best of conditions is about one basket per plant per season.
June Bearers generally produce a single large crop in spring to early summer (as early as March in warmer regions) and are prolific producers for 3 to 4 weeks. Pick the blossoms off June bearers the first year to boost production the second year.
Everbearers are not as prolific as June bearers but are especially suitable for growers who wish to harvest a constant supply of berries throughout the summer. Plant some of both to have a large harvest to preserve, and plenty to eat all summer!
Full Box Quantities The plant count of a full box is 1500. If you buy a box, you will end up paying only $0.10/plant. These ship directly from the supplier.
I grew these and ended up getting a basket every other day throughout the summer. They were wonderful tasting, prolific plants and easy to grow.Review by Sandy (on 10/4/14)
I picked up a bundle of these little beauties Monday evening, put them in the ground Tuesday evening and Thursday I have new growth! I ended up with 27 plants. Can't wait for fresh berries!Review by Julie (on 2/27/14)
These were the healthiest bare-root strawberries I have ever received! I purchased two bundles of 25 (50 total) and planted them last weekend, February 1st. A week later, almost all of them are already leafing out! I can't wait for the harvest!Review by EB (on 2/8/14)
The plants that arrived were in good condition and all are under a grow light producing new leaving every couple of days. My only problem is there was supposed to be 25 in the bundle and there were only 24 plants. I did check to make sure two weren't stuck together. So, I think the packers should check carefully the number, because even one plant missing is lots of strawberries for the season...I'm alittle disappointed. :(Review by Dana (on 2/16/13)
