Perennial Plants



From a backyard garden to acres of perennial fields, the quest for species that are hardy, store well and valued by consumers is the goal of Balamore Farm. From day one, bare root quality along with quantity set us apart. Larger, healthy roots, properly divided and stored in our cold storage units provide the best plant material for nurseries across North America.

Our growth over the years shows in our current availability of products. We have moved from a supplier of many perennials in small quantities, to supplying large quantities to supply wholesale perennial growers as well as providing a valuable service to the smaller growers and retail garden centers.

Fortunately, we have very favorable growing conditions in our area. Sandy-loam, class 2 soil, along with temperate weather brought in by the Bay of Fundy; give us a distinct growing advantage.

Bare root offers an established root system for a quicker, fuller pot for your customers. North American grown root systems do not have to be washed, heat treated or shipped long distance in containers, thereby increasing viability and flowering the first year.

Our Perennial Roots

Proper sized root systems for your container is essential for meeting your sales requirements. Here are some samples of our bare roots. There is a ruler beside each root to help you judge the actual size of the root system. Most of our perennials are offered in more than one size to meet your needs.
