GENERAL PLANT QUESTIONS

How soon do I need to plant my plants after I purchase them?
It’s important to plant your new plant in the ground or in a pot with soil amendments and fertilizer as soon as you get it home. Nursery containers require watering often and constant care.

Do I remove the stake that came with my tree?
Yes. Most trees come with transportation stakes, meant to stabilize the tree during transport. Once you plant your new tree, remove the transportation stake and replace it with one stake on each side, set about 12 inches from the trunk, and secure with flexible ties. Come in and we’ll show you how.

Do you recommend landscape professionals?
Choosing a landscape professional is such a personal decision. We work with so many professionals in the field that we feel it would be unfair to refer some and not others. However, we do have a few tips for you:

Tips for Selecting the Right Landscape Architect, Designer, or Contractor:
  1. Get at least three bids and check references
  2. Compare bids carefully, making sure they are itemized the same way
  3. Pay attention to the relationship potential – work with someone you are comfortable with
  4. Gather photos to define your style
  5. Save room in your budget for things you love: plants, furniture, grills, art…all of the things that will personalize your landscape
Each of our locations has a Contractor Sales area, where we fulfill orders for landscape professionals. In that department, you will find a bulletin board filled with business cards of local landscape companies. From there you can take as many cards as you like to begin your research.
