    Table of Contents


     Do not allow roots to dry out at any time when you are handling your plant material.

     Keep out of the sun, wind and freezing temperatures.

     If possible store bare root material in a refrigerated storage area or store plants in a cool, humid room.

     Plants may be heeled in sand, sawdust or wood chips for a longer period of time.

     If material has been frozen in transit, thaw out material very slowly. It should not be handled until thawed.

    Sweating Bare Root Plants: To provide a warm, humid environment for bud break, lay down the plants to be sweated, in the shade. Cover with wet packing material, such as a rug. Be sure the plants are kept moist. Ideal temperatures should range between 45 and 70 degrees. When the buds begin to swell, the plants are ready to pot or line out. If after a week the buds have not begun to swell, do not become alarmed. In some instances, bud break can take several weeks.

    Cross Nurseries recommends forcing the following plants. Amelanchier Redbud River Birch Weeping Willow Tamarix Mulberry Hawthorn Roses Pagoda Dogwood Oak Hackberry Potentilla Barberry Variegated Dogwood Ironwood Spreading Cotoneaster

    Depending on locations, these varieties may require sweating also: Linden Locust
