Fall is the time to plant

We are fully stocked with fresh plants. The trees and shrubs that we potted up last winter are rooted out and ready to be planted. Some of the plants for fall color are Sassanqua Camellia, Firepower Nandina, purple Encore Azalea, ginkgo, burning bush, Knockout Roses, and Orange Pyracantha.
With the cooler weather of fall, it is the perfect time to spruce up your yard. Jim offers this advice- any month with the letter ‘R’ is the best time to plant. There are hundreds of trees and thousands of shrubs. We have one of the largest and most varied selections in the Triad. We are known for our quality and knowledge. Jim and Judy both graduated from NCSU in horticulture and Tammy studied horticulture at Forsyth Tech. Jay worked at a large greenhouse in Raleigh before returning to help in the family business. Bring a picture and measurements of the area you want landscaped and we will help you choose the right plants for your yard.
