FALL IS A TIME FOR PLANTING

The tag "Fall is For Planting" continues to ring true. If you are one of those who has put off planting for one reason or another, fall can be a great time to capitalize on your previous procrastination.  Large trees seem to do better when planted in the fall after frost has sparked the dormancy cycle. Planting of shrubbery in early fall requires less watering and care than spring/summer planting as there is less competition from the turf as less hot drying days. Watering is still important as the plantings need to store up reserves for the drying winter winds, especially the evergreens. Much root growth is concentrated in the fall. Next spring will yield a smile for your efforts now as your new plantings emerge respective to the benefits of the micro climate at their new home. Lawn plantings also get best results in this area if expedited prior to October 15.
