Agave’s Lined Up Like Soldiers In Formation!

We propagate native cacti for your low water landscape areas! The following is a list of the native cacti we grow:
Black-Spined Prickly Pear Century Plant (NM Agave) Club Cholla Desert Christmas Cholla Engleman Prickly Pear Lecheguilla Agave Red Yucca Soaptree Yucca Sotol Spineless Prickly Pear Tree Cholla Yellow Flowering Yucca
These cacti thrive in full sun with only occasional watering. They are winter hardy to our area. As long as they are planted in the ground and not left in small containers above ground they do very well.
A problem can arise if they are left in small containers above ground during winter. This can happen if we experience a particularly cold winter. Containerized cacti left above ground during winter can experience root damage or death. This can occur if the container freezes solid.
This is something we have learned over the years and so we bring all of our containerized cacti into an unheated greenhouse during winter. This affords them a little extra protection from the eleme…

When Planting, Dig A Square Hole!

When planting, dig a square hole not round especially, if your soil is a clay or compacted soil.

Most of us dig round holes when planting perhaps to match the containers shape.  As you dig any hole your weight on the shovel compresses the sides of the hole as you pull back to left a shovel full of dirt. Whatever shape hole you dig you will end up with compressed and hardened walls.

Roots will follow the path of least resistance as they grow outward in the planting hole. The path of least resistance will be the fill dirt area of the hole. When the roots encounter the planting hole wall it is a harder surface (undisturbed) and the roots may have a tendency to follow the wall surface rather than penetrate through it. If they do your tree or shrub may become root bound in the planting hole over time.
A square hole still has the harder wall surface as found in a round hole but with a square hole there are cracks and crevices. These cracks and crevices provide places where roots can get stuck …

Gambel Oak Seedlings During The Holidays at Trees That Please Nursery.

Trees That Please Nursery may be closed for the holidays but our work continues.
Each year we harvest Gambel Oak Acorns from trees planted in isolation or from native populations from around the state of New Mexico.
Acorns are either planted immediately or refrigerated until planting.
In either case, acorns are in the soil by October or November where they germinate and grow overwinter in seed flats in one of our heated greenhouses. In the photo below (Look Closely) you see young Gambel Oaks on Christmas Eve at the nursery. These young seedlings will become our future tree stock in 3-4 years depending upon vigor.

 This is just one of the many tree species we propagate annually.

New Zealand White Clover (Trifolium repens) is a perennial nitrogen fixing legume that reaches about 8-12 inches in height. New Zealand White Clover is more tolerant of heat and drought than larger clovers, is more vigorous, and tolerates a wide range of soils.

New Zealand White Clover forms a symbiotic relationship with nitrogen fixing soil bacteria calledRhizobium trifolii. Rhizobium bacteria are found in root nodules of clover and other legumes. The Rhizobium bacteria fix atmospheric nitrogen into ammonium that the plant uses for growth and development. The plant in turn provides a suitable growth en
