Fall Nursery Stock

When fall comes around, many nurseries are wrapping up the season and ready to shut the doors for the winter. You can typically expect to find the same tired looking stock that has been out on the shelves all season, the leftovers of what has not sold.  Not at Fort Collins Nursery!  Each fall we release loads of fresh, new plants into our inventory throughout the month of September.  We have freshly stocked perennials including all of your fall favorites like mums and asters plus dozens of new shrubs and trees that were grown right here at the nursery by our wonderful production team.  We also receive truck-loads of great new tree stock from several of our trusted wholesalers. Our fall selection is hands down the best you’ll find, and fall is a great time to plant – warm soils encourage rapid root establishment, while the coming cold weather means the plants aren’t spending energy growing foliage and blooming, leaving all that energy for root growth.

    Do you have any dwarf fruit trees in stock for fall planting?
    If so, what are the choices?
    Thank you.

      We have lots of trees that are on semi-dwarf root stock, which typically limits their height to between 12-16 feet. We tend to stay away from trees on fully dwarf root stock, it tends to significantly impact the long term viability and survival of the trees compared with semi-dwarf or standard. We carry a great selection of cherries, peaches, apples, pears, and plums, as well as the occasional apricot. Please call us for specific varieties, availability, and pricing: 970-482-1984

    Do you have Tatarian Maples for planting this fall.

  4. Kay Gayton says:

    Do you have any small flowering trees, such as Coralburst Crabapple in stock?

    There is a tree at my workplace that has red seed pods like a tartaran maple. But the leaf shape is not maple-like. It is ovate and slightly serrated. The seed pods became bright red this summer, well before the fall cool-off. What kind of tree could this be?

    • jesse says:

      I’d guess it’s a Hot Wings Tatarian Maple – they don’t have the classic toothed leaf we associate with maples, and in fact I’d probably describe them exactly how you did: ovate and slightly serrated!
