  1. Hi! We are new to Ludington and would like to know when is a good time to plant trees. We’d like to plant either a fruit tree or ornamental tree in our yard in town and don’t know if it’s too early (today is 4-22-17).

    Also, do you know when is best to begin planting ground cover, roses, bulbs and bushes in Ludington?

    Thank you!

  2. Hi Marc, and Suzanne. Generally, throughout the dates of April 15th to June 15th is the best time to plant all types of trees. In Fall, you can get away with planting conifers in sandy, well-drained soils. This is because the roots need time to grow and develop before the ground freezes. Only conifers in loose soil are reasonably expected to be able to do this. Some people like planting conifers in sandy soils in the Fall because they don’t have to worry as much about initial survival in drought-y conditions.

  3. Hi Janice, our tree sale pickup is on Friday, Oct. 13th. You do not have to pre-order to be able to buy a limited selection of the trees we have available. Generally, it is best to plant trees and shrubs in the Spring, from April 15th to June 15th. Fall planting is recommended only for those people with sandy, well-drained soils who want to plant conifers.
