[Video] How to Plant a Bare-Root Fruit Tree

This short instructional video will show you how & when to plant a bare-root fruit tree for best results…

We’ve been talking a lot about growing fruit lately, and with good reason! Fruit is a wonderful food source to include in your garden and yard. While you have to plant most garden crops anew every year to get a harvest, many shrubs and trees will bear delicious fruit for years with just a bit of care and maintenance. Early spring is a great time to start thinking about adding some fruit to your garden lineup. In most areas, it is best to plant fruiting trees, bushes, and shrubs while they are still dormant and the weather is cool. Trees planted during this rest period have time to settle into their new growing conditions and start putting down roots before they burst into vigorous growth in spring and summer.

This short video demonstrates how to properly plant a bare-root fruit tree to get it off to the best start. Bare-root trees and bushes are generally much less expensive than pot-grown plants and are usually available between autumn and spring, while the plants are dormant. Watch this step-by-step video now, and get your fruit trees and berry bushes ordered soon!

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
