Early spring and fall have always been traditional times for planting, but with the development of many methods of growing plants and rooting products, planting at other times of the year is not only possible but quite desirable. Plants that are balled and burlapped or container grown may be planted at anytime that they are available at the nursery. Regular watering is essentials and we recommend using Fertilome's Root Stimulator for the first year no matter what time of year you plant. On the other hand, bare-root stock is best handled and planted during the dormant season in early spring. All products can be purchased at Christen Farm Nursery and the staff will be happy to answer any other gardening questions you may have.
