Our Tag Line is that we grow “Unique and Specimen Plant Material”. This is what the nursery was built around from the beginning. We still grow some spectacular varieties of plants. The pictures show just a few of the hard to find material we grow. Some of our unique plants are Carolina Hemlock, Paw Paw or Japanese Umbrella Pine. Other more common material in hard to find larger sizes are American Holly, Wentworth Viburnum and Blue Alaskan Cedar. This material sells quick so contact your sales person soon, so you don’t miss out!
The cool weather is upon us and digging is in full swing. We are safely digging deciduous material like the plants in the photos as well as most everything else on our inventory. We dip the root balls in a tank shortly after digging to break the water resistance of the burlap as well as getting some water into the balls before irrigating on the dock. We can have them ready for you three days after they go onto a harvest report. Give your Rep a call.
A long time ago when I first was in the industry, “Fall is for Planting” was a national campaign each year. It was true then and is still now. We are planting each day knowing that plants will start to root in now and grow better next year. The same is true for the plants we are selling. Proper planting and watering in fall increase the survivability and ease of care next year. Check our availability for the many items which are on your needs list or call one of our Sales Reps.
The days and nights are cooling down which make for idea planting weather. We have a great selection of container material ready to ship now. Ilex g. ‘Gem Box’ makes a great hedge as does Ilex g. ‘Compacta’ and Rhamnus f. ‘Fine Line’. Hydrangea are still blooming and the grasses are at their showy best. There is plenty of B&B material to go with the containers.
