I can’t believe it’s our 35th year... When we started designing and planting our fields and orchards, who would have thought that people would be coming from all over Vermont to see what we are doing? We have been helping a lot of our customers turn their lawns into Eden.

Thanks to the Elmore Roots crew for all you do, working this farm and nursery and turning it into a wonderful place. Thanks to all our customers for having the eyes to share our vision and the good taste to get your fruit trees and berry plants here. We could not do it without you.

You turn to us and we turn to you to help us make Elmore Roots nursery a growing place that understands your needs and works with you to meet them. Your success is our success. That’s why we say “If it grows in Elmore, it will grow where you are.”

Founder and Vermont Certified Horticulturist

Tree SizesBecause you asked, we are growing larger sizes of fruit trees and blueberry plants. Check out our new bearing age fruit tree section next to our parking area and big blueberry mural near our store.

All of our potted trees come with a metal tree guard included in the price. This is very important for the success of your tree that the main trunk be protected from chewing voles and borer beetles.

We offer a “starter pack” mineral mix for $15, enough to help one to three trees, or our successful tree planting mix that also nourishes the earth in and around the planting hole to provide an optimum environment for the healthy steady growth of soil life and your plant. ($22 for a 20 qt. bag can plant 1-4 trees or shrubs depending on size).

We offer bareroot raspberries, strawberries, and asparagus during April and May at substantially lower prices.

Lots more at our farm and thank you for your support! Sarah, David, Leslie, Mary, and Jessica and the rest of our hardy crew.

Example of our three main sizes of fruit trees
$75, $150 and $250, from left to right
(cherries tend to be a bit shorter)
the trunks are a lot thicker and sturdier as size increases
and there are a lot more branches and less time to fruiting
