Don't Wait !!!

Holidays are over and we are excited for this Great New Year!!!!
 
*How many of us put off our landscape planting, until warmer spring temperatures? 
*How many of us think we cannot plant in winter?
*How many of us think winter is a bad time to plant?

You don’t need to wait for spring to plant!

Winter is an ideal time for planting, there is no water stress on newly planted trees and shrubs. Sometimes when we plant a containerized tree or shrub during the growing season we may inadvertently damage some roots as we remove it from its pot. During the growing season plants are actively pulling water in through their roots. If roots are damaged during planting your tree or shrub may wilt. A tree or shrub with damaged roots may take some time to recover and may look“wilted” Planting a dormant tree or shrub during winter avoids this water stress issue. If roots are damaged during winter planting your tree or shrub won’t wilt. Plus when growth resumes in spring your plant will begin growth in place based upon its functional root mass with no further disturbances. Cold temperatures or frost will not harm your dormant tree or shrub.

As long as your soil is not frozen, you can plant!

We have the largest selection of native grown trees! They are always the most Harty because they are adapted to NM weather from seed.
