What is the difference between Bare Root and Plug?

Rick
The plugs that we grow are in trays of 84 plants in a soilless medium with each plug measuring 1.125” diameter and 2.125” deep and shaped like a cone with a bottom drain. The bare roots are plants that were grown in beds for at least 2 years and have been freshly dug for you to plant. The majority of our plugs are $1.25 each and the bare roots are $5.00 each.
Let me know if you need more information.
