For over a century, our Bareroot products have been the foundation of our own Bailey finished container products. We’re incredibly selective and have developed grading standards that exceed the American Standard for Nursery Stock.
At Bailey Nurseries, our Finished Products are the largest consumer of Bareroot liners. As a fellow grower, you can trust that you’re getting the same quality liners for your own production. Many of those liners get their start in our own tissue culture lab, seed beds, and from rooted cuttings propagated in our own greenhouses and fields in Minnesota and Oregon. Controlling the quality from the start gives you the opportunity to get the best plant money can buy.
Every grower’s production needs are unique, so it’s important that you can choose from a wide assortment of varieties and sizes to fit your budget and timing demands. Find support for key crops including container finishing times by browsing our Grower Resources.
Carlton Plants has been a leader in the bareroot market for over a century, focused on providing quality bareroot trees (shade, ornamental, and fruit), ornamental shrubs and rootstocks. With a thread of common ownership since 1984, a common set of core values made for a natural fit when they were officially acquired in late 2018. Integrating one of the industry’s most well-respected bareroot growers into the Bailey organization offers customers an expanded product portfolio with the same quality and service they have come to expect.
For decades, both Bailey and Carlton employed strict cultural practices and techniques to produce the best quality bareroot plants. Our teams work closely, sharing information and learn daily about ways to improve how we produce nursery stock for you.
This program is designed to stimulate coarse rooted plants to produce more fibrous root systems and proportional canopies.
In Oregon, we confirm the amount of sugar-starch levels in the root systems before we harvest to ensure dormancy has been met.
Our refrigerated storage facilities encompass over 12 acres of warehouses located in Minnesota and Oregon. Sophisticated systems maintain temperatures at 36 degrees F, and humidity levels at 98% from the time the first crops are dug and graded in the fall to final shipments in June.
