Gardening had always been a part of life here, but this was a little different. Our focus became specialty produce for some of Nashville’s finest restaurants.
Along the way, we have found a world of variety in fruits and vegetables, many of which are hard to find or simply ignored by the mainstream of agriculture.
Here we are beginning a new nursery to provide some of the best of what we found.
About Our Trees
|A few years ago a good friend began to experimentwith rootmaker® containers and was met with
amazing results. When we decided to start
Rock Bridge Trees we knew rootmaker® was
the only way to go.
Our rootmaker® trees grow faster and transplant
better than any trees we’ve ever seen. Trees grown
in these containers develop a massive fibrous root
system, even on trees that are notorious for their
taproot. The thousands of root tips produced by
these containers allow our trees to establish faster
and with less transplant shock.
Chinese Chestnut trees 5 months old
These trees Bore their first chestnuts by year 3
|Faster establishment in their new home means, morefruit, nuts, or flowers years sooner than most
bare root trees.
Bigger is not better when buying trees.
Buying the whole tree, roots and all,
will always give better results and
results are what matter!
