Bare Root vs. Container
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
Bare root pecans are dormant plants with exposed roots shipped December through March. These plants are grown in the field and then removed from the soil when dormant. When planted in a new location, bare root plants will adapt more quickly to new soil conditions.
Container pecans do not need to be dormant when transplanted. With proper care and attention, they can be transplanted October through June.
