Bare root plants.

Could someone please recommend a website/websites  that sell Bare root perennials? I often buy plants on line but none of my usual favourites sell bare root ones. Thank you kindly.

Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

    I think most perennials are usually sold already potted - various sizes from plugs to 2 lt pots.
    Could be completely wrong and you are obviously after some particular ones - perhaps if you said what you were looking for, someone may have some info :)

    I have looked at Brookside perennials website in the past, they sell bare root perennials -
    I haven't purchased from them if l recall correctly so can't give a personal recommendation,  maybe other forum members can  :)

    Thank you, I’ll have a good look at those websites, I’m creating a new prairie style border so I’m after heleniums, Rudbeckias, Achilleas, and grasses etc.

    Peter Nyssen do them too. I've bought from them before and they are good plants.
    This year though, they have started to sell them in threes, at a good price.
    Good for you if you need repetition in a border, less good if you just fancy trying something new.
    Concentrates the mind somewhat, unless you have very deep pockets!

    Thomson Morgan have a few, this is a decent buy but not sure if it suits your needs?
