For those of you who have placed a Spring 2018 order, you should be receiving your acknowledgment in the mail shortly, if you haven’t already. Please review what you have been acknowledged. Demand is high and supplies are low on some plants, so pay special attention to any size or variety substitutions. Those of you who have not placed your order, we encourage you to do so sooner than later.
The staff at Losely Nursery hopes you have the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with your family. We are closing on Wednesday, November 22nd, at noon for the weekend so all of us can spend time with ours. We will reopen on Monday, November 27th at 7:30 a.m.
There is still time to make money before Winter arrives. Please take a few minutes to review our availability. You will find we have a great selection of plants available in a wide range of sizes.
And don’t forget to get your Spring orders in. We will be allocating Spring orders Thanksgiving week.
Fall digging season is in full swing. We have had about 2.5” of rain and it’s cooled down. The soil is still warm so the plants will begin to root in and start to establish before winter.
We still have a great selection of material available for your fall projects. It won’t be long until you need to think about your spring order.
We are taking every precaution to be sure you receive viable plants from us. All of our plants are run under a water gantry to soak the burlap so the burlap does not repel water. Then while still on the pallet to protect the root ball, the plants are dunked in our dip tank to get more water into the ball. This does not turn the ball to mud, but it does allow the irrigation to maintain moisture in the ball and the plant. After the plants are shipped, it’s your turn to water twice a week until the ground freezes.
It is very important to water the root ball twice a week. It should be enough that the surrounding soil absorbs water also. Fall rain is not enough to keep the plant alive so water regularly until the ground freezes.
It is also a great time to plant perennials. While they may look a little tired by this time of the year, they will root in and come up great next year.
With deer being such a problem in the landscape, there’s a need for deer resistant plants. We have them! Cephalotaxus h. ‘Prostrata’ is a nice spreading shrub that deer leave alone. Thuja p. ‘Green Giant’ and Rhododendron are as well. You will find other deer resistant varieties through our availability.
We have large specimen material that is not easy to find. These Pinus koraiensis 18’ were shipping direct to a job site for an immediate impact. We just might have what you are looking for also!
All of our sales staff toured the containers and the fields on Wednesday and Thursday. They were excited at what they saw available now and coming on in the future. They really liked the consistency in the quality across the board. We believe you will be very happy also!
