Fall is the time for planting!
Though spring is always seen to be the best time to plant in the garden, fall is actually a great time to plant for most areas. As the soil cools off, the roots remain extremely active until we get a hard freeze. Trees and shrubs planted in September have a few months to get themselves established before the winter, then in the spring they are primed to flush out.
Another reason to plant in the fall and in particular come to Crocker Nurseries is that unlike most garden centers, we buy in several truck loads of trees and shrubs in the fall. We do this to get the best selection from growers, and also to overwinter the material here to go dormant on our schedule. We purchase the bulk of our rhododendrons, many flowering and shade trees, Japanese maples, forsythia, evergreens, hydrangeas and live Christmas trees. Also, we still have a large selection of trees and shrubs that have been cared for all season—hand watered, pruned and fertilized so they are looking great!
We want your plants to thrive when you plant them in your yard, and part of what makes that happen is starting with good soil. To encourage fall planting, we will be giving you a free bag of Fafard Ultra Outdoor Planting mix for every $50 you spend on plant material in the month of September, up to 5 free bags! (normally $6.99 each!)
