Fall Tips – Planting

Posted by in Tips on Jun 16, 2013

In general, fall is an excellent time for planting.  Trees and shrubs are going dormant and are easily moved with little to no transplant shock.  Availability often increases in fall, as many plants can be dug directly from the fields.  However, we recommend that any evergreens be installed prior to October 15th.  Evergreens do not go dormant and need approximately 6 weeks to store up enough water before the ground freezes.
