New For Fall 2020/Spring 2021

Riverside Bareroot Seedlings

Our first growing season is behind us and there are thousands of seedlings waiting to be barerooted.  The orders we have pending for fall 2020 will be lifted and prepared for delivery in early November.  Our goal has always been to minimize the time these seedlings spend uprooted.  Our plan is to lift the seedlings and process your order right before being delivered to you.  We do not “dig” your seedlings out of the ground; instead we hand lift the plants from our growing beds with great care.  There is no machinery for this; just people.  Plants are then examined, graded, and packaged for delivery or pick up.   In each step great care is taken to minimize trauma and dessication to the roots.   Spring 2021 seedlings will be ready in late March or early April depending on the weather.  If you are interested in more information please call 740-815-3230 or email Ed at (

Now that we have the benefit of 20/20 hindsight one of the things that we would do differently is fertilize significantly less.  We grew too many big seedlings.  For instance we have Black Walnuts that will look you in the eye and these were actually planted late in spring.  The species that we have which are large (large being 36″ and greater) include Black Walnut, Black Locust, Common Elderberry, Buttonbush, Catalpa, and Silver Maples.  We’re offering these at $4.00 each in any quantity.

The species we are working with currently are listed below.  We will be collecting seeds and offering additional species next fall.
