Summer is flowing along nicely in the nursery so far! The weather has been perfect for growing trees – timely rains, nice temps, plenty of sunshine… our fields look vibrant! Most of our initial pruning work is done. We are going back now and putting the finishing touches on some blocks of trees for future crops. Some of the new growth has been vigorous this season due to all of the early spring rains, so we are finding the need to start back through pruning some trees a second time. We want to stay ahead of the top growth so that the heads can stay in proportion to the trunk caliper and we don’t need to stake any more than necessary.
We will be starting our new fall inventory counts & measures soon. We are anticipating fantastic growth in the field this season. After we bring all of the numbers back into the office, we can make our production decisions of which blocks to dig for this fall versus next spring. Our final field availability will be ready later this month, and we will be ready to take some more fall or spring orders!
In the Above Ground Holding Yard the trees are still looking great! We have a diverse selection of trees available including several spring dig only trees like Oaks, Red Maples, Birch, Hornbeam, Dawn Redwood, Baldcypress, Redbud, etc. Everything is fresh and ready to go for fall planting projects.
Right now is a perfect time to visit the nursery. The weather is great, the trees look fantastic, and our fresh sweet corn is in full swing! Becky’s Dad also captured some great nursery pics from his plane the other day. You can see our new shed/office project underway on the corner. Stay tuned for more updates soon about our new venture. Please stop by anytime and we can show you what we have growing for you at Spring Grove Nursery!
