Bare Root Plants, Dracaena and Pruning

In this episode C.L. and Ellen explain what “bare root plants” are and why you might want them. Next, they talk about the genus Dracaena, which includes some of the most popular houseplants. They end by disagreeing about general rules for pruning (sorry Morgan).

20:21    Love Letters and Questions: Morgan requests some easy rules of thumb about pruning.

It’s more common to find that shrubs, trees, perennials are shipped bare root, but occasionally other plants might be sent that way as well because the package won’t be so heavy.

Dracaena fragrans, aka corn plant, is found in many sizes and leaf-varieties.

This photo shows the red buds that tell you it’s time for roses to be pruned.  C.L. prunes roses when those buds are red, which is in the early spring. Does Ellen agree?
