    Nursery Selection

    by Administrator 11. April 2013 14:33

    Some questions you should ask when selecting a nursery are as follows:

    • What is the overall value for the price?
    • Does the nursery carry a variety of non-standard plant material?  
    • Is the plant quality consistent as the weeks go by?
    • Are the plants pruned properly?
    • Is the root ball properly dug and tied?
    • Does the plant display appropriate vigor?
    • Does the plant meet ANA standards?
    • Are trees grown regionally or are they shipped from outside our region (i.e. the south?)
    • How knowledgeable/professional is the sales staff?
    • What is product availability in the summer and fall? Does it look “fresh” or “tired”?
    • Is new product available throughout fall and into winter or are you forced to take what’s left over?
