From Nursery to Landscape: Tree & Shrub Selection
January 12, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Longtime nursery grower Jeff O’Donal will discuss those often overlooked or forgotten factors that go into choosing trees and shrubs for a new landscape. While the setting itself dictates size and shape, also important to consider are tree health, the root-ball structure (whether in a pot or B&B), rate of growth, and adaptability to a new site. All this and more goes into choosing the right specimens for the right place, ensuring they thrive long into the future. Whether or not you’re a seasoned landscaper or gardener, this topic is always relevant to our practice. Come with questions and testimonials to share after the one-hour presentation.
