What are bareroot trees?

Bareroot trees (dormant, with no soil around
the roots) are available in winter, in the widest selection, from our
nursery and at the best prices.  Bareroot trees may be topped, limbed
and shaped as the grower chooses.

Container trees are conveniently available in
spring & throughout the year, but at a higher price than bareroot,
and all varieties and variety-rootstock combinations may not be
available.  For the first couple of weeks, actively growing trees
planted from containers must be watered frequently, sometimes daily, til
their roots establish in the surrounding soil.

One of the biggest grower of bareroot trees
popular in the Phoenix area is Dave Wilson.  Each year Flower of the
Gods brings in a wide selection of Dave Wilson trees for sale.  These
are typically available via pre-order online & for a short time in
person at the nursery.  For those not picked up during pre-order,
bareroot trees are quickly potted into containers to give them best
chance to break dormancy in spring.  These will be available for sale at
a higher price than bareroot with the understanding that they were
recently potted & need to be treated as such.  Once trees break
dormancy, Flower of the Gods will again adjust the price as I consider
them container trees at that point.

You can help your tree be successful by how
you treat your tree from the time you purchase, how you plant it &
care for it until it breaks dormancy.  Especially if planted early and
are well-established before any hot weather.  Bareroot trees are a great
way to secure the trees you really want in your yard.
