Fall is the time for planting perennial, especially trees shrubs!  Why?  When plants go dormant they send stores of sugar from their leaves to their roots.  During this transfer of energy larger perennials put on up to 80% of their root growth for the entire year.  Fall plantings also receive ample rain during the fall and winter months, which helps get them established without extra watering on your part.   I guess the better question about fall planting is, Why not?

We have a large selection of fruit trees, berries, and shrubs native, ornamental, and edible!  For an updated inventory with prices and availability, please see our 2015 Fall Inventory   Fruit trees are on sale for $35 apiece, and our shiitake mushroom logs are also on sale for $20 each.  We will be taking orders for pick-up at the September Open Houses, and can also arrange to deliver within the Bloomington area for an additional fee.
