We recommend shopping at a local garden center. This way, you can gain access to several benefits including experienced staff and robust native plants. Our garden center, located in Gotha, FL, is convenient to areas such asThe Villages, Clermont, Winter Garden, Windermere, and more.

  • When a specific plant will reach maturity
  • What type of pruning you need to perform on your plants
  • Whether annuals or perennials will...

Planting Bareroot Deciduous Trees

Bareroot trees are trees that have been dug up from the ground when they’re dormant. These trees are usually uprooted in the fall and their roots are shaken free of all soil. Generally, bareroot trees establish themselves quicker and grow more vigorously than other transplants.

Because bareroot trees are dug up while dormant, they must be planted while they are still dormant, usually in late winter or early spring at the latest. January is the best time to plant deciduous fruit trees as this gives the roots time to establish themselves before the hotter months. When choosing deciduous trees for your central Florida property, it’s important to pick ones that have a low chill requirement as they fare better in our mild, somewhat warm winters.
