There are a few trees we absolutely love, and one that made it to the top of our list this year is the Liriodendron tulipifera ‘JFS-Oz’ Emerald City® Tulip Tree.
We love the spring blossoms and flowers that brighten up the cloudy days, but spring is probably the second best time to plant trees.
Trees should be planted with the root flare, or where the trunk starts to develop roots, level or 1-2 inches above the level of the soil.
Unfortunately, nursery's don't have a spell. We don't have anything special that keeps our trees more alive than they can be in a landscape setting. Although that is a bummer for us, it is a good thing for you. That means that after planting your trees, you can be sure to have healthy, happy trees in your yard!
While it may be enticing to choose a lower quality tree with a cheaper price tag, consider the money you save in the long run from a potentially early replacement.
Mark informed me the trees were just watered by the sprinklers that water the grass. I am confident that is all that is needed for most trees.
We watched these trees get planted as little 1 to 1 1/4 inch caliper trees in the Lowes parking lot in Pasco, Washington about 10 years ago. They have struggled for years. Every tree is dying due to damage to the trunk.
Autumn beckons for change as humans layer up for warmth, birds quell their singing, and trees don generous flamboyant fall colors. Not to be outdone, the Redpointe® Maple graces the scene, like a bright flame juxtaposed against the greying skyline.
Even if a tree is improperly planted, it can survive for sometimes years, but then suddenly die after becoming a beautiful addition to a home. Planting correctly can impact whether a tree will live for years to come.
During our Spring, Open to the Public event, we had a video team come out and capture a little of what we do here on the nursery. Through the next couple months, we will be sharing the videos from that week. Today, we are sharing the first of the nursery.
Adding landscape plants to your yard is a great way to brighten up your home, but keeping your plants healthy can sometimes be a challenge.
Enhancing your outdoor space with trees is an excellent way to add value to your home, and upgrade your living environment.
The secret is out, Paul's Scarlet Hawthorn is this year's darling. Otherwise known as Crataegus laevigata 'Pauls Scarlet', our new favorite tree delivers rosy blooms and seasonally adorable ornamental fruit. Dark pink blossoms resembling tiny roses burst in a dazzling display throughout the spring.
