Fall Planting

Fall is on the horizon and it’s a great time to plant!

This can be a great month for gardening. Days are getting shorter and a little cooler.  The nursery is looking to clear some inventory so it’s also the most cost-effective time to plant.  Mulching and winter watering will drastically increase a tree’s chance of survival.  After you’ve planted your tree, water it deeply and thoroughly.  Then mulch the area around the tree at least 3” deep and water again.

Fall is also the time to plant bulbs.  Bulbs are often overlooked, but can be amazing year after year and such a welcome site in the early spring.  Don’t be afraid to mix it up and be creative with your layout, or feel free to ask us for some assistance, we love to help with suggestions.
