Heather's Helpful Hint

Strong Roots Equal Healthy Plants
April 26, 2012

While we would always prefer the rain to fall at night during the week and definitely not on a weekend day, we are still very grateful for the amount of rain we received last Saturday night through Monday morning. Over two inches fell in our area which helped put a big dent in our six inch deficit!

Fortunately there is no talk of drought at this time but it is still of primary importance to water, especially your newly planted trees and shrubs.

Before you get to that point, planting correctly and with the right soil amendments and mulch will give your plants the start they need to develop a strong root system. That will maximize moisture retention and enable your trees and shrubs to pull in the nutrients needed to grow and thrive.

Different plants have different needs, so be certain that you are adding the ideal amendments, including fertilizer and mulch, with every addition to your landscape. Take the time to talk with one of our gardening experts in the nursery and greenhouse when you’re making a plant purchase. Your success is important to us and we want you to have all the tools necessary for a beautiful garden!
