Frequently Asked Questions

What do you grow?

We are propagators of woody shrub and conifer liners for further growing on by other nurseries, garden centers, and landscapers. We supply them in 30 cell trays and 4.5in Quart pots.

How old are the plants?

The 30s are 1 - 2 years old, and the quarts are 2 – 3 years old, depending upon variety. Plants are released from the nursery when the top growth is well branched and rooted through the container.

What zone is your nursery?

Our nursery is in a zone 4 area. Our last frost date is Memorial Day.

What pot size should plants be potted into?

Generally the 30 cell plants are potted into 1 or 2 gallon pots. Quarts are potted into 3 to 5 gallon pots or direct into the field. All deepening upon plant variety, vigor, time of year, and growing environment.

What growing media/soil do you use?

We use a bark based soil mix with slow release fertilizer. This is to mimic the growing on nursery environment as much as possible. We minimize the use of folia/liquid feeds as we find plants become reliant on them. Our aim is to aid growth and reduce the risk of planting check and encourage quick establishment.
