HOW WE HELP?
We’ll help you make choices or give suggestions and send videos if desired showing the function, and style you’re looking for. We will be able to recommend cold-hardy varieties that will suit your specific needs Horticultural zone your tree is going to be placed. Our nursery professionals will (try) to get familiar with the different microclimates.
WHEN CAN I PLANT NEW TREES?
Trees that are considered frost hardy can be planted most anytime with the packets that will arrive with your Tree (shock prevention). Trees, except in extremes (freezing or heat spells), should climatize well. Frost-tender trees should be planted no earlier than mid-February when we’ve been subjected to the kind of frost we’ve just been through.
WHEN DO I PRUNE?
It’s best to avoid any pruning until the last chance for freezing conditions has past, which is usually around mid-February to early March (meaning we’re out of the potential times of the year for freezing).
WHAT HAPPENS IF I ALREADY HAVE/DO PRUNE NOW?
If you prune now, the healthy part of the plant can be exposed to the frost, and will, with future frost exposure suffer enough damage that it may not recover. Also, the damaged foliage acts as a protectant from the sun while the plant/tree is recovering.
HOW MUCH DO I PRUNE WHEN I CAN?
You should prune dead material only, so whatever is gray/brown in color (branches/wood) should be cut.
WHAT DO I DO ABOUT WILTED LEAVES/BRANCHES?
If a leaf is strongly wilted now, it will turn color in a few days to a week, and you should still wait until March before trimming. Plants will drop old, dead growth to push new, fresh growth.
HOW DO I KNOW IF IT'S DEAD?
Tell-tale signs of a dead tree or plant are:
- No visible green in any trunk or branch
- No sign of any new growth in the coming weeks (the plant maintains or degrades in shape/color)
- The tree or plant in question has a pumpkin-like or rotten fruit odor
- Keep an eye on your tree in the coming days and weeks. If wilted leaves do not begin to drop on their own, that's a sign that the tree will not push new growth, and will need to be replaced.
