Rootballs

Root Balls are large, heavy, mature plants, they are grown in fields rather than pots and carefully lifted with specialised equipment. The soil and roots are wrapped with a biodegradable hessian wrap which will decompose with time, you do not need to remove this before planting.   Root balling is a method of growing evergreen and a very few deciduous species and is generally an autumn/ winter/ early spring plant.

Most species are available mid October to mid February. 

Please take a look below to view the Root Balls we have reserved, however we can quote on any tree / shrubs / native hedging and buxus.  Simply give us a call on 01932 875403 or drop us an email info@theotternursery.com
