The Benefits of Bare-Root Trees...
Bare-root trees are grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.
Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.
If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing.
Selling bare-root trees allows us to offer you a higher quality product at a lower price.

Bare Root Plant
When it comes to beautiful plum trees and the mouth-watering fruit they bear, there are several great varieties from which to choose from—and if you only have the space for just one, well, the decision is a tough one. So, to make your selection easier, we decided to take three of the very best cultivars available and graft them together to create one amazing plum tree: our 3-in-1 Plum!
The 3-in-1 Plum tree erupts with color early in spring, flaunting pale pink and/or white blossoms that are fragrant and lovely against a backdrop of vibrant green foliage. These three cultivars bloom at varying intervals, depending upon your region, so you’ll have beautiful flowers for weeks on end. This tree is a show-stopper for sure.
Maturing to heights of just 15-20 feet with a similar spread, the 3-in-1 Plum fits nicely into almost any landscaping design, and with a tree of this stature, your harvest will be trouble-free. Though this magnificent tree is self-fertile, you’ll want to plant more than one for the aesthetic value alone.
Hardy in zones 5-9, the 3-in-1 Plum is low-maintenance, requiring very little care. A vigorous grower, this exceptional darling thrives in partial to full sun, and is disease resistant and tolerant of dry, hot conditions. It certainly doesn’t hurt that it has terrific autumn color too!
Our nursery staff is trained to perform specialized pruning of these 3-in-1 Plum trees, to provide you with the highest producing fruit trees available. This versatile beauty is a veritable must-have for your backyard fruit orchard. Order yours today, while supplies last.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your 3-in-1 Plum Tree.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your 3-in-1 Plum Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your 3-in-1 Plum Tree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
