Now is a great time to dig Magnolia and Syringa. They will re-establish roots now as long as they are provided adequate water. The plants will reward you next spring with larger flowers and leaves, and better growth. Syringa successfully overwinter if properly healed in so they bloom on your lot if spring comes early.
We grow many varieties of evergreens that are not easy to find including six cultivars of Ilex opaca and the male pollinator, Ilex pedunculosa, Picea englemanni, Pinus d. Oculus Draconis, h. leucodermis and peuce, and Thuja plic Nana. They are not difficult to site in the landscape for success. Our sales team can help you with any or all of them.
August is a time of the year when we can dig evergreens and some deciduous material. We are digging what is safe now, but we need three days of turn around before you pick up material. We want to water, care for and watch your material in the shade structure for a couple days to be sure your material does not crash. Like you, we want your customer to be happy with the material we grow at Losely Nursery.
We hope to see you at the 50th Annual NGLCO Summer Field Day on Tuesday August 8th at Chalet Debonne Vineyards. Visit us for the plants and knowledgeable people who work for us. We can be a resource for you. And when you are done at Field Day, stay for the wine and beer made at the winery.
