When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants arrive in stock (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, preferably sooner. If you will not be present at the shipping 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 cannot leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days and expect it to survive.
AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from the plastic bag, store the trees/plants in a basement-cellar-garage, cover their roots with sand-dirt-sawdust-wood chips and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground.
Raspberry vines prefer deep, well–drained, fertile soil. Summer bearers fruit 2–year old wood with everbearers producing on first–year wood. Summer bearers tend to spread by tip layering so unless you want more raspberry vines cut back long vines before the tips reach the ground and root. This type is often grown with the minimal support of a fence post in what is called the "hill method". Everbearers are more likely to spread by their roots and are typically grown in the "hedgerow method". Canes that have escaped the hedgerow will need to be dug up and relocated each year. These brambles thrive in most soil types but they do not tolerate poor drainage.
Raspberries 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. Sold by the bundle (see item for specific quantities). Shipping weight 3 lb/bundle.
