Part Two: Planting Trees and Shrubs in the Fall
Most people think of spring as the planting season, but while the days are getting shorter and nights cooler, trees and shrubs are sending all of the energy from their leaves to their roots where they can continue to grow underground until the ground freezes. It's a little known fact that trees and shrubs put on the majority of their roots growth each year between September and November. Without the stress of hot, sunny days, plants can become established in little time, with minimal care, and get a head start going into to the following spring.
Learn how to take advantage of planting dormant trees and shrubs in autumn. We will cover everything from how to choose the proper location, prepping and amending the soil for maximum success, and methods of future maintenance.
