Select trees that grow well in your climate and soil type. Be sure to consider the plant’s hardiness zone. Each species has a different tolerance to late spring and early fall frosts, flooding, and drought.
Container grown trees and shrubs can be planted anytime from spring until fall, as long as the ground is thawed. Keep trees and shrubs protected during transport and leave them in a shaded area until planting.
LARGE CALIPER TREES AND CONIFERS:
Each tree and shrub species has specific watering requirements so water them according to the garden center’s instructions.
Use recommended fertilizers for trees and shrubs in spring and again at mid-season. Fertilizers help trees grow and withstand drought, disease, and insects.
Trees or shrubs planted in areas with little snow accumulation or at the edge of their hardiness zone may need good winter protection.
