Getting plants ready for planting

Posted in Plants, Pruning, Uncategorized at 6:48 AM by Administrator

We are at the time of year that is great for planting. We believe you should help your plants get acclimated to their new home by loosening up the roots as most plants have been growing within a container or burlap. You will probably need pruners or a knife to pry the roots free of the rootball. By loosening up the roots, you help the roots grow outward from the plant thereby making the plant stronger and more viable. This is what a perennial looks like just before we plant it.
