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.
Get your new plants off to the right start by using DIEHARD™ Transplant.
This soil amendment contains 16 strains of mycorrhizal fungi, biostimulants, beneficial bacteria and Horta-Sorb® water management gel.
Simply sprinkle the product into the planting hole adjacent to the root ball when planting.
The organisms will start to work right away supplying the roots with much need nutrition.
The specially formulated Horta-Sorb® will reduce transplant stress and aid in water retention.

Bare Root Plant
Forsythia shrubs give you great color not only in the spring, but in the fall months as well. In early spring, your Lynwood Gold Forsythias will produce an abundance of bright yellow flowers… signaling to everyone that spring has arrived.
This floral display against its deep green foliage is nothing short of amazing. You get another showing of fabulous color in the fall, when its leaves turn bright yellow with a hint of orange and red.
• Plant these trees in rows for a vibrant display of color and unbeatable coverage.
• Plant them alone as colorful ornamental plants.
• Plant for coverage as a privacy screen or hedge.
With a growth rate of 2 to 4 feet per year, your forsythia will quickly fill any space, anywhere. These Lynwood Gold Forsythias are virtually carefree – you don't have to be an expert to get outstanding results!
Just plant these shrubs wherever you want tons of color... sit back... and enjoy the show! We do recommend a light pruning after the leaves have dropped to give it good shape and consistent growth.
Nothing can lift winter gloom faster than a glimpse of the cheery sunshine yellow bloom of forsythia. Its abundance of sunny yellow color will become an integral part of your lawn and garden.
Your Lynwood Gold Forsythia will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Lynwoodgold Forsythias prefer full sun they can tolerate shade. Plant your Lynwood Gold Forsythias about four feet apart for a hedge. Lynwood Gold Forsythias will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Once established Lynwood Gold Forsythias will only need to be watered during times of prolonged drought. Usually rain fall provides enough moisture. In the Early Spring fertilize your Lynwood Gold Forsythia with a fertilizer that's high in phosphorous and prepare for the show. Vibrant yellow blooms will emerge every Spring. There's also an encore performance in the Fall when your Lynwood Gold Forsythia leaves will turn from green to bright yellow.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lynwood Gold Forsythia.
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 Lynwood Gold Forsythia 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 Lynwood Gold Forsythia 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.
