Fall is for Planting!Posted: 10/6/2014 9:46:08 AM
October is an ideal time of year to plant trees, shrubs and perennials. So with that, now through the end of the month Reynolds is offering 50% OFF trees, shrubs and perennials!
John Kelly, General Manager of Reynolds’ Garden Center, offers these fall planting tips:
~ Remember to water your new additions to the garden. Even though the weather is getting cooler, the sun and wind can dry out your new plants.
~ Placing some fresh mulch around the base of the plant will help retain moisture and insulate the roots.
~ Don’t plant your new shrubs or trees too deep. They have to breathe so keep the top of the root ball level with the ground.
~ If you have poor soil, adding an amendment such as top soil or compost at the time of planting will benefit the plant.
~ Any extra soil can be used to make a saucer around the new installation that will help direct water towards the plant.
~ Don’t be afraid to ask when is the best time to prune your new plant. Different plants have different pruning requirements. If in doubt, just ask one of the professionals at Reynolds!
