September is for planting!

Did that spring planting project go unfinished? Have you been away most of the summer? Was it too hot to plant? Whatever your reason, September is here and it’s a perfect time to plant trees and shrubs. Here’s why:
Fall Specials: Fall is a great time to shop. Take advantage of sale pricing all month!

Less Stress: Cooler temperatures mean less evaporation and trees don’t have to work as hard draw in water and nutrients.

Warm Ground Temperatures: Even as the air temperatures drop, the ground is still warm. The warm earth allows for good root formation, even after the foliage drops.
Ready to Grow: Trees and shrubs planted in the fall have acclimated to local temperature, daylight and moisture conditions. Once the ground warms up again in the spring, these trees will be ready to grow. As an added bonus, spring snowmelt helps keep the root zone moist.

One Less Spring Project: Shorten your to-do list for next spring. You’ll be glad you took the time and energy to plant.

We offer a five-year warranty on trees and shrubs when you plant using Myke™. Ask our friendly garden center staff for details.

Continue to keep newly planted trees and shrubs moist until the ground is frozen in late fall. Hand watering may be necessary after your irrigation has been turned off. At least two inches of mulch should be applied over the top of the root ball to maintain even temperatures and moisture. Evergreens are especially prone to moisture loss and browning over the winter months, so be extra diligent in providing ample water until the ground is frozen. For extra protection, spray new evergreens with an anti-desiccant like Wilt Pruf™ in October. Fruit trees and crabapples are delicious winter food for voles and need to be protected before the snow flies. Stop by our greenhouse for trunk guards and repellant and help save the heartache of damaged and dead trees next spring.

Fall Planter Makeover

Dead, crunchy leaves, pale spindly foliage, aphids…

Does this describe your once-beautiful planter? With a few fresh plants and an energizing dose of plant food, you can have a pretty, welcoming planter with flowers to last another month or two. Here’s how:

1)      Pull out any dead plants and replace with fresh fall annuals such as pansies, kale or mums or ornamental peppers.

2)      Trim overgrown foliage plants.

3)      Water with a liquid plant food such as Fox Farms™ Tiger Bloom.
