Planting Suggestions
A container grown plant will suffer little, if any, transplant shock when planted properly. Please follow these steps to help insure successful planting.

1. Remove the plant from the container.  If the plant doesn’t remove easily, carefully cut the container open.
2. To help the roots establish themselves, scarify or cut the root ball vertically on four sides and on the bottom. (Approximately 15% of root ball width).  This stimulates outward growth of the roots.   Use a serrated knife, pruner, spade etc.
3. Dig a hole that is twice as wide and the same depth as the root ball.
4. Place the plant in the hole so it is at ground level.
5. Backfill the sides of the hole with soil and saturate both the root ball and surrounding backfill with water.
6. New plantings should be watered as needed.  Physically check the moisture level by placing your thumb about 1” into soil.  If the soil is moist, moisture is adequate. Over watering kills plants. Be aware of how lawn irrigation systems may affect your new plantings.
7. We highly recommend mulching. Mulch suppresses weeds, holds moisture, evens temperature extremes and builds the soil.

Our native plants, naturally occurring in the river bottoms, flood plains, prairies, woods and savannas of the Twin Cities Region, are at this time from seed or cutting sources within 300 miles of our nursery. Most are actually from sources in the local area. We are committed to providing plants that are regionally specific. Call for information on contract growing site specific plants.

Container Grown
Container grown is a plant which is "rooted in" a container and is actually growing in the container. It is not a "potted" or "containerized" plant which is a bare root plant recently placed in a container with growing media. When a container grown plant is planted properly, it quickly acclimates to its new environment and will continue to develop its roots and shoots, virtually eliminating maintenance and replacement costs.
