Did you know that during the holidays and winter that it’s a great time to plant? Yes! The weather is cool which gives plants time to establish roots prior to the heat of summer. Cool weather is what plants need when newly installed, especially large trees.
It’s less stressful for the plants so they have a higher survival rate and look better going forward.
Also, it rains more which means Mother Nature provides the water and you’re not paying for it. 🙂
