Getting ready for Spring!

February 8, 2011

It has been such a cold winter, that everyone will be excited about getting back outside once the weather breaks. I’ve been busy grafting Japanese Maples and other deciduous trees. Soon I’ll be working on grafting the pines. I had a planned surgery in January and so far, everything looks good.
We are going to open a week later this spring due to extra time it may take to get the nursery set up this year. ( I am not supposed to lift anything over 20 lbs for a while still). However, I have already put up on the website our expected inventory for our spring opening which is March 12. We will have a very good selection of balled and burlapped conifers, some large topiaries, and other rare and hard to find plants. For some of the topiaries, we are going to do something different this year. Some of these will only be sold in pairs rather than singles. What happens is that over the course of the year, we end up with lots of singles and very few pairs or multiples for people who need them.
The Japanese Maple list will be updated in the next week or so. I was able to get some new varieties that will appeal to the collector. The nursery is open by appointment this time of year. AFter the new material arrives as is our custom we do not pre-sell to allow everyone the opportunity to review our offerings. Mark Saturday March 12 on your calendars!
