Our crews are busy daily with fall tasks, including lots of planting and transplanting. Now is the time, as plants root best while soil temperatures are warm. We cut off fall planting at the end of October, as it is a risk to plant so close in time to the cold temperatures and bitter winds of winter.
We will start bulb planting around Columbus Day and aim to finish up before Veteran’s Day so that all bulbs root in well before the ground freezes. No bulbs ordered yet but still want them? Please let Priscilla know immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so that your bulbs will ship with our orders during the first full week of October.
It is so warm now that the first frost seems far off…but we are keeping an eye on the forecast and daily temperatures. We will be pulling soil tests shortly and planning your nutrient density soil amending program. Many clients have seen a gain in plant growth, bloom and fruit production as a result of this work, not to mention overall plant health. We like to get the amendments down in October and November so that the freezing and thawing cycles of winter can help break up the various rock powders and natural materials used. Your plants will benefit!
