As August rolls on, the nursery chores as always never stop. Weed pulling, potting and replacing of more overwintering structures goes on as well as getting ready for the Christmas season with bow making for the grave blanket business and porch pots! The cut trees from our southern Ohio grower have been ordered since last January so that they will arrive on time right at Thanksgiving for the Christmas season!
When the nursery had a plantation of trees to cut in Pennsylvania years ago, every Thanksgiving would be spent cutting, dragging and then baling the cut trees to be loaded onto a flat bed truck to be hauled to Ohio.
Now with a new inventory just being taken, stock is infinitely more accurately represented on our online inventory list. With more stock becoming ready in the rear growing areas, the inventory will expand and in addition we will receive a semi truck load of freshly dug stock at the end of this month. In September when the weather cools, gorgeous 6 foot baby Baby Blue Spruce will arrive that are already tagged in the field. With the azure-blue color and branches to the ground, these trees are a sight to behold and eerily uniform in shape and size as they are from a seed selection that originated in Canada over many years.
Don’t forget to use up all the Dayton dollars through August 31st as after this date the value will be zero. There’s plenty of selection now to be had!
