Quince growing on a tree

When it comes to Bare Root Fruit Trees -- we've got you covered.  The following is a list of just some of the fruit trees that we are proudly offering in 2018.  We select only the best varieties of locally grown fruit trees to ensure that your home orchard, however big or small, is ultimately successful.

Keep a look out for those sun breaks during these last weeks of winter so you can seize an opportunity to properly take care of your fruit trees. Applying a dormant spray during the winter months helps control bacterial blight and fungal diseases before they can even start to take hold. So if you want to be enjoying disease-free fruit later this summer, you'll need to do a little preventative maintenance now.

Now that the Christmas tree has been taken down until next year, that space may be looking a little barren and forlorn. What a better way to liven up your dwelling, especially during these winter months, than by adding some simple houseplants.

You may have to go back a ways to see temperatures as cold as the ones in our current long-range forecast. So while we may have a nice Christmas break, now is the time to prepare for much colder temperatures.

beautyberry bush

This deciduous shrub is noted for its brightly colored, tightly clustered berries that remain on the bush into winter - making it a great choice for four-season gardens.

Now is the time to bring in all those tender plants that will not likely survive our winter temperatures.

Heuchera 'Cajun Fire'

Ahhh fall. We just love reaching for that favorite sweater and taking a walk to explore everything autumn has to offer.  With the landscape changing there are many trees, shrubs and perennials that are well worth keeping an eye out for. And fall is a great time to plant these in your own landscape.

Lawn in Fall

As the heat of summer gives way to the cooler, crisper days of fall, now is the time to switch your gardening focus from watering and dead heading to preparing your yard for fall and winter.  Whether you are reseeding, fertilizing or redoing your lawn, fall is the best time of the year.  Your lawn will respond better to all your efforts, especially in the months of September and October.

There's plenty to do this time of year in the garden, but nothing better than getting to harvest the fruits of your labor!

If you are trying to create a four season garden, it's important to think about having something in bloom throughout the year.  So as your annuals start to wane, it's time for the glory days of Crape Myrtle.  When the rest of us may be struggling with the heat, the Crape Myrtle actually just starts to looks its best.
