What is the difference between bare root plants, rootstocks and pot plants?
Bare root plants are grubbed up at the moment that the plants are in rest.
Bare root plants have no soil around the roots and are packaged in a plastic bag, it is important to place these plants immediately after receiving them in the ground and not without protection around the roots somewhere to lay down!
Bare roots dry quickly and therefore the plant cannot develop.
These plants are much more economical in purchase.
You can also silage the plants on the bundle in which they are delivered so that you have more time to prepare the final site.
Plants with clots are grubbed up from the ground when the plants are at rest. They are available from mid-October to mid-May.
Plants with root ball have a clot of soil around the roots that is kept together with a net.
When you put them in the ground do not remove the netting as this will damage roots. The net is made of environmentally friendly material. The advantage of plants on root ball is that they are already well developed and your hedge has volume.
Potted plants are grown in a pot and are available all year round.
The advantage of pot-grown plants is that you do not damage the roots when planting, which causes the plant to grow immediately and therefore can be planted all year round (not when it freezes).
Because potted plants occupy more space during the growing period and are more laborious for the grower, the price is significantly higher.
