It’s time to place your spring order!

Spring-Clipart

On November 25th, the day before Thanksgiving, we will start the process of putting spring orders against the current inventory.  When we do this, there will undoubtedly be many oversold items.  We will begin the allocation process at this time for these items.  Any order that comes in after the allocation process has started will be date and time stamped to be entered against available inventory after the allocation process is completed. Therefore, it is important to get your spring order in as soon as possible.


Great looking plants for your late season projects

We are getting ready for Winter, but we still have plenty of container plants looking great and some are in bloom.  The doors aren’t on yet and every house is easy to get in.  With the upcoming warm week, there is still time to get that last couple of projects done.  You have the time and we have the plants.

We transplant our evergreens for your success!

We grow our evergreen trees in liner rows before we dig a ball on them for transplanting.  This trims all of the roots and forms a heavily fibered root system on the tree.  The high quality root mass ensures our customers of fantastic success with our spruce, pine and fir.

Unique and Specimen

Unique and Specimen trees are one of the things that set us apart from other nurseries.  We can mix these in with your B&B and container shrubs, smaller B&B trees and one gallon material.  Our loading crews are masters at blending mixed size loads together.  Stop in for a tour and see what we grow that you may not find anywhere else.

Great Evergreen selection

We have a great selection of evergreens that will fit most every design need whether it is weeping, columnar, low and round, for a screen or a specimen piece.  Check the availability and you will find them ranging in size from 3′ Picea pungens Globosa to 19′ Pinus strobus Columnaris.

Tremendous Taxus

We grow 16 varieties of taxus, so we are sure to have one to fit your needs.  From cold hardy cuspidata, to tall and thin Adam’s perfect for hedges, to Densiformis, Wardii and Brownii for mass and foundation plantings.  They are machine dug in a basket for an optimum package, yet no larger or heavier than a hand dug ball.

Grasses for immediate impact

This is the time of the year when most plants are losing their visual impact.  Grasses are coming into their own now adding interest and texture to a landscape.  We have a great selection ranging in size from the compact Pennisetum a. ‘Little Bunny’ to the tall Erianthus ravennae.


Machine Balls & Wire Baskets

We strive to grow plants that are of a superior quality that shine in any landscape.  In an effort to ensure our high quality plants have solid root balls that hold up to handling and shipping, we put a machine ball and wire basket on many plants that are traditionally hand dug.  Some examples are in the photos below.  We believe you will agree that the extra effort and cost we put into the package pays off with your customer’s satisfaction.

tsuga canadensis
This 11’ Tsuga canadensis has the typical fullness, feather and shape of our 5’ to 12’ trees.
taxus densi
The wire basket consistently allows our Taxus to hold up very well in a holding yard and perform great when planted.
thuja emerald
Our Emerald Green arborvitaes have plenty of width. They are in a 24” ball to give you an idea of the fullness of the plant which will require fewer plants in your hedge.
snow queen
These Hydrangea que. ‘Snow Queen’ in a #10 are field grown for two years before they are bare rooted and potted in early spring. You are getting field grown quality in a container that is second to none.
saturnalia
Itea vir. ‘Saturnalia’ #10 will make an instant hedge. These plants have a mature height of 4’ and width of 5’. They can tolerate clay soils and wet conditions.
pallet
When we dig material it is handled one time to load onto the pallet and once again when placed onto your truck. We move the plants around on pallets to hold the integrity of the ball.
max pink
Rhododendrons have a small root system that can be damaged easily while handling. We put our larger Rhodies in baskets to increase your success.
Arctic Fire
Cornus stol. ‘Arctic Fire’ #10 have great winter color, hardy to zone 2 and is just one of the many Proven Winner selections we grow.

Beautiful and Graceful grasses

This is the time of the year when ornamental grasses look great with their plumes either present now or coming shortly.  Fluffy Pennisetum, erect Calamagrostis, and wispy Miscanthus add to fall interest of any garden.  We have other varieties also that range from the short ‘Little Bunny’ to the tall Erianthus ravennae.  We even have the native Sporobolus heterolepis.  Review the availability to see what other great grasses we have available now.
