Is It Too Late To Plant?

Posted on September 13th, 2019

One of most commonly asked questions this time of year is, “Is it too late to plant?”

Thankfully, the answer is a resounding “No!”

We keep bringing in fresh plant material EVERY WEEK!

Fall is a fantastic time to plant for a number of reasons. Cool nighttime temperatures, moderate daytime temperatures and warm soil temperatures create favorable conditions that allow for rapid root establishment. Combine this with the fact that most plants are now finishing their top growth for the season, it allows the root system to take advantage of all the hard work your plant did during the growing season. You can certainly help your plant get ready for winter by planting with Van Wilgen’s Jump Start, and amending the soil with Van Wilgen’s Premium Planting Mix. You’ll also want to make sure you water your new plant every three days if mother nature doesn’t help you out. We are never quite sure what she is up to these days.

They say that time is money, whelp, following these steps just bought you a head start for your plants to look great come spring.
