What to Expect
Our bare root plants come with their roots packaged in wet paper wrapped in plastic. You can keep them in their packages for up to 7 days if you place them in a cool, shady, frost-free place like an unheated garage. Before you store the plants, open up their packages and make sure that the roots and packing material are moist. The packing material should feel like a wrung-out sponge. Check the moisture level of the packaging material every two days.
If you don't have an ideal place to store the plants in their packages or if you must wait for longer than 7 days to plant, then it is a good idea to heel your plants in.
How to Heel In Bare Root Trees
Ready to Plant
STEP 1: Take the trees out of the box and inspect the trees to make sure the main trunk did not snap and the roots are in good shape.
STEP 2: Our bare root plants come with their roots packaged in wet paper wrapped in plastic. Remove the plastic bag from around roots.
STEP 3: Soak the roots in a bucket/trough/bin etc. for 24 hours. It is important that the roots stay covered in water.
STEP 4: After a 24 hour soak, plant your trees in the ground. The hole should be double the width and as deep as the root system.
STEP 5: Spread out the dormant tree’s roots to encourage outward growth.
STEP 6: Keep the tree vertical in the planting hole (perpendicular to the ground) so that it grows straight.
STEP 7: Keep the graft union (the colored tape on the lower trunk) 2-3 inches above the ground.
STEP 8: Refill the hole with native soil (what was removed at digging time), and any other soil amendments.
STEP 9: Gently tamp out any air pockets from the soil once the planting hole is filled.
STEP 10: Thoroughly water your newly planted tree.

Received 17 Pecan trees of three different varieties to grow on the farm. They were packed all in one box and were some what moist. It took Fedex three days to get them here? We put them to soak ASAP over night and stared planting them the next day. It took two full days to plant all the trees. Its been two months now and all the trees are doing GREAT! This is the second of many orders we will make for our farm. They are great to do business with and very happy with everything!!
I wanted trees but only the bare root was available, so I gave it a try. Big mistake. We had just experienced a week of solid rain so I could not plant them directly in the ground. I attempted to place in buckets until the ground dried a little but was unsuccessful due to the size of the bare roots. They would not even fit in ten gallon pots due to their length and as a result none of my bare root saplings survived to be transplanted into the ground. Stick with their trees. They are great.
Order was delivered fast. Trees appear very healthy with excellent root systems. They were all at the very minimum of the height description. If taller, prior to my pruning, I would have rated them 5 stars.
I ordered a couple of these bareroot Amling pecans about three years ago. The man I talked to on the phone was super helpful and knowledgeable and generous with his knowledge. The trees arrived in great shape and have done better than trees I paid twice the price for elsewhere. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Plantmegreen. Whether Amling will prove to be a good variety for my location remains to be seen. Bill Reid, the former extension pecan specialist with the awesome blog on northern pecans (continuing in retirement), suggested that my growing season on the western edge of the NC Piedmont might not be long enough to mature a crop of Amlings, but it seems otherwise like such a good variety for a no-spray yard tree that I wanted to try it anyway. I'd love to hear reports from anyone that has cropped this variety in more northerly areas like mine.
Great service,. very nice people. They kept me informed about my order and followed up after it arrived in great condition. Very good trees.
