Fruit trees: bareroot vs container trees
I'm in the process of selecting fruit trees to be planted in my yard and am wondering if you who have planted have had better success with bareroot or container trees. When I call the nurseries they of course tell me to buy the type the sell but I want to know from experience.
For container trees, I'd purchase from RSI Growers as the owner Reid has rootstock that does well in our soils and the plants are acclimated to our temps. I've read nothing but good things about his plants. Bareroot, I'd buy from a reputable online nursery or local nursery (not a big box!).
