PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
The bare-root pawpaw I planted last spring didn't break dormancy till early october, and I am doubtful it will survive the winter; The second one never broke dormancy. Next year I am going to try small trees that have leafed out a bit. Always looking for a good supplier. Bare root historically a failure for me... Not offered locally, though I discussed with one nurseryman about the possibility. It will be a huge success indeed if ever I coax a pawpaw to bear fruit :)

Sorry you've had bad luck! When I researched, I found a nursery or two that consider themselves specialists and say they are successful with bare root plants. I can find that link again later and put it here.
Thanks for reading and giving us your feedback.
