Rootball plants arrive in a hessian sack of soil. They are usually far bushier than container-grown plants, however the take rate is lower. Due to their larger size, they are very perfect for achieving an instant effect.
Bare Root plants don’t arrive in a hessian sack or in a container, they are simply the “bare roots” of the plant. This can make them quite vulnerable. Despite this, they are extremely cost-effective, perfect if you are working with a tight budget.
Both Bare Root and Rootball plants are only available for half of the year and have to be planted almost immediately after they’ve been delivered. Container-Grown can be planted all year round with a high success rate. They are also happy in their pots for a number of weeks providing they are well watered.
This is completely weather dependent. But as a general rule, we would recommend watering your plants once or twice a week.
