When can I plant trees & shrubs?

  • Dormant trees and shrubs can be dug up, moved and planted as soon as the soil can be worked, as the frost leaves the ground.  Its too late after they have burst from bud into leaf!
  • Container grown trees can be planted from spring to fall

Tips for the Season!

  • Spring is an exciting time for gardeners. As the gardens wake from hibernation it is always fun and exciting to watch for the little green shoots that begin to sprout here and there.
  • April is time to start making compost, apply fertilizer and mulch to your beds and borders.
  • Clear away any winter mulch before you add fertilizers. Check your trees and shrubs for winter damage. Stake or tie those plants that flopped due to snow and ice weight.
  • Prune spring blooming shrubs after theyve finished blooming to make way for the buds for next year!  Lilacs, double flowering plum and forsythia all fall in this category.
  • Prune birch and maple after they have fully leafed out to avoid excessive bleeding!

Prune

Spring is the time to prune broken branches, and last years spent blossom heads.  Its best just before the leaves start to leaf out, except for early spring bloomers like lilacs, double flowering plum; or bleeders like maple or birch.  Wait until the blossoms have come and gone;  and the trees are fully leafed.
