Fall feels like it is here. The nights are nice and cool and the days very comfortable. We had an inch of rain this week and more on the way for next week. The ground is moist. It is the best planting time of all the seasons. I know I sound like a broken record but I can’t emphasize enough that fall is the ideal time for planting trees and shrubs. The diagram above shows very well why. The diagram shows a tree but the same logic applies to shrubs. FALL IS THE BEST TIME FOR PLANTING TREES AND SHRUBS. Take advantage of the beautiful weather we are having and do fall planting. Your fall installed plants will do much better next summer than those planted in the spring. Plant wildflower seeds this month as well. Sow them right before a rain and they will take hold and next spring will be beautiful blooms.

October 2022 Newsletter

We are having some nice fall weather now. Cooling down this week. The long range forecast calls for a pattern change and rain maybe next weekend. FALL IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR FOR PLANTING TREES AND SHRUBS Our BARE ROOT FRUIT TREE LIST FOR JANUARY 2023 is now available. We have copies available at the nursery or I can email you a list upon request. Fall fertilizing should be done now or very soon. If you have not done your fall fertilizing yet you should do it as soon as possible. This fertilizing is important because it gives plants a good boost and also gives them stored food for winter. Next spring they will use that stored food for growth as soon as the weather warms. A balanced fertilizer is good for almost everything in the landscape. Citrus trees would like a citrus fertilizer and this should be the last application for them for the season. Don’t feed them in the winter. Rhododendrons and azaleas should not be fertilized now unless it is with a bloom fertilizer. This will help give more blooms next spring. The same could be used on Dogwoods if you have one that does not …

The weather is now getting cooler. Fall is on the way. Long range temperature trend is for low 90’s and upper 80’s over the next couple of weeks. FALL IS THE BEST TIME FOR PLANTING. We have an excellent selection for fall planting and if we don’t have it in stock we can get it usually within a week. Fall fertilizing should be done this month. Use a balanced fertilizer for most of your trees and shrubs. We carry16-16-16 and 15-15-15 and organic all purpose fertilizer in 6#, 25# and 50# bags. If you have only a few plants, we also have it in 1# boxes. Be sure to fertilize your deciduous plants and perennials before they show signs of dormancy. Give your tomatoes a balanced fertilizer now and you should get more production out of them for another month, maybe longer. With the cooler weather coming, trees and perennials will start to go into dormancy probably in October. Weather depending. Fertilize citrus now, then let them go through the winter without feeding, but do protect them if there is freezing weather in the winter. Use a citrus fertilizer on your citrus trees. Give roses fertilizer now and enjoy some …

August Newsletter 2022

Start planning for your fall planting and maybe even get a jump on that fall planting now. Looks like we will be in for some cooler weather coming up. Mid 90’s and cool mornings and the temperatures will start trending down as the month goes on I would expect. Remember that fall is the best time for planting trees and shrubs. Especially trees. The ground is a bit hard after the summer but if you start a hole and soak it, and then dig a little more and soak it, pretty soon the hole you need for the tree or shrub is done and it is a fairly painless way to dig a hole. It’s worth the effort to get things planted in the fall. Note the diagram describing the advantages of fall planting. Watering and Mulching Continue to water established plants deeply for the balance of the summer and into fall. Deep soaking gives you the healthiest plants that can go through the summer and you will use less water. A drip that runs for longer time but fewer times a week will use less water and give you healthier trees and shrubs. Established plants can frequently get through …
