Happy New Year! We at the Nursery wanted to pass along some vital information and tips concerning the extreme drought St. Louis has been experiencing over the past season.
Typically in St. Louis, fall planting is considered desirable, because normal fall weather provides cooler days and increased precipitation that helps newly planted materials grow roots and become better established in their environment. However, this year we've experienced abnormal dryness that has impacted nearly all of Missouri.
With conditions such as these, it is important that we be mindful of the forecast and take advantage of any warmer (40 degrees and up) days to come by thoroughly watering your landscape. Especially any broadleaf evergreens or plants that have a minimum cold tolerance of zone 6 (avg. min. temp 0 to -10 degrees F). If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to stop by the Nursery (Tuesday - Sunday) or give us a call (314-645-7333). Our team of outdoor experts and horticulturalists are here to help.
