Fall is an ideal time to plant deciduous trees and shrubs. Going into winter, the plants go dormant, allowing them to use all of their resources for root establishment. Once, planted, the success of your new trees and shrubs is, quite literally, in your hands. It sounds like a lot of pressure, but don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Follow the guidelines in our Planting Guide, and you’ll be on your way to the greenest thumb on the block!
