Now is a great time to plant. Evenings are cooler, morning dew provides some moisture, and the plants will have two seasons of cool weather to establish before the heat of next summer. But don’t forget to water if it doesn’t rain! Feel the soil about 4″-6″ below the surface and if it is dry, your plants need water. Take a look at one of our previous posts for tips on watering.
Trees and shrubs can be planted as long as you can dig a hole. The sooner perennials are planted, the better. With their smaller pot/root size, they need some time with warm soil to extend their roots outward and anchor themselves in the ground. If you get them in the ground a tad late, keep an eye on them through the winter. During freeze-thaw cycles, if the plant heaves out of the soil a bit, gently press it back into the soil.
Oaks are one of the best trees you can plant for ecosystem value. And some of ours are on sale now! (See below) Read more about oaks here.
