Planting in the Winter?

Winter seems like a bad time to plant to many, cold temperatures and everything has gone dormant. Winter is actually a great time to plant. It's best to hold off on tender perennials as a cold snap can quickly kill them, but trees and hardy shrubs will do just fine. Planting in the winter allows their roots to adjust to the soil much less stressful than when planting in the summer. We typically have more rainfall in the winter months as well. Planting in the winter will allow these trees/shrubs to be ready for the hot and dry summer. One of our favorites to plant is the Live Oak (Quercus Virginiana). Let us know if we can help!
