Heather's Helpful Hint

Successful Planting
November 10, 2011

You really won't believe the amazing prices we are offering this week on nursery and perennial plants! More amazing is the incredibly good weather we are having this week and next in which you can successfully plant just about any tree, shrub, or perennial.

But good deals turn into wasted time and money if you do not plant correctly! Amending your soil is still absolutely necessary along with mulching and watering. Watering until the ground freezes is crucial if we do not have good soaking rains weekly.

When the daytime temperatures are consistently in the 50's, use an anti-desiccant such as Wilt-Pruf on your broadleaf evergreens. Less moisture will be lost through the foliage resulting in less winter burn and prettier plants in the spring.

Some plants require a little special attention during the winter, so be sure to speak with one of our sales associates when you come in for the advice you need for successful fall planting.

While you are here take a peek in our Gift and Christmas Shops for a delightful array of holiday decorations, home décor, and the perfect gifts for family and friends!
