Planting Viburnums in June

Planting Viburnums in The Summer Open 7 Days/Week...7am To 6pm
Viburnums are my pick for the most versatile and garden worthy shrubs. Besides having attractive foliage and growth habits, the best viburnums also offer lovely—sometimes even fragrant—flowers.
American Cranberry bush (Viburnum trilobum)
A deciduous shrub from the Honeysuckle Family (Caprifoliaceae), American Cranberrybush is commonly found throughout the northern tier of states in the United States. In these locations, it is a resident of open, wet woodlands and beside streams and some other bodies of water. It has an outer row of showy, sterile flowers resembling Hydrangeas. Also known as Highbush Cranberry ( because of its red fruits), this shrub has strong stems and thick branches, and may reach 12 feet tall by 12 feet wide when found in the open, with an arching growth habit at maturity that leaves the center of the plant devoid of branches. This shrub can be cut back hard and recovers quickly. New landscape cultivars of this species have a much more compact and dense growth habit. As a member of the Honeysuckle Family, it is related to the Honeysuckles, Elderberries, Weigelas, and the many other Viburnums. Viburnums have been cultivated by man for thousands of years and this particular variety is my favorite for fast growing and easy to cultivate plants. If you have had trouble growing other plants in your landscape, this is a plant that will not fail for you. Planting Requirements - American Cranberry bush prefers moist to wet soils of rich or average composition, and of acidic pH. However, it tolerates dry soils of acidic, neutral, or alkaline pH reasonably well. It loves full sun to partial sun, and performs well in partial shade to full shade, although its growth habit will be much more sparse. It habitat range is found in zones 2 to 7. We always have in stock a large selection of this viburnum. Our availability in sizes ranges from seedlings and liners to 4-5' shrubs B&B ready to pickup.

Quality Producers Cheap Screening Trees
Buffering Screening Trees Open 7 Days/Week...7am To 6pm
Call us for Arborvitae at 215 651 8329 . Emerald Green arborvitae are cylindrical screening trees. If they are allowed to grow without any pruning, they grow tall and thin. If they are pruned on top they will put their growth into growing bushier but not add as much height till they top out at 15 ft.
Using Arborvitae as living screens can easily enhance living and working spaces. Before selecting Arborvitae for screening, first determine the screen's purpose, whether functional or environmental. Screening can be used to define an area, modify or hide a view, create privacy, block wind, dust, salt and snow, control noise, filter light, and direct traffic flow. Our trees can assist you in gaining privacy.
Our Potted Evergreens used to create privacy around public and private pools, patios, and terraces. Workers inside an office or residents of a home can be shielded from the view of passing vehicles and pedestrians with the added benefit of improving the view looking out from inside. We have many types for many different locations and soil types.
With our Evergreens you will have a great way to control or block noise. Leaf and branch surfaces muffle the noise from businesses, cars, air conditioners, and other sources. Trees can be planted in the narrow areas between buildings and nearby streets, in beds against buildings, in parking area islands, and in highway medians for noise reduction.
On street medians and parking lot islands, Our evergreens will give drivers visual markers that indicate distance, identify obstacles, and direct the flow of traffic. These Evergreens also works well for pedestrian traffic, a principle utilized by many theme parks and tourist attractions. Evergreen tree screens can also act as barriers to prevent shortcuts and paths through flowerbeds and across turf in areas where small shrubs are not effective.

Most evergreens growing in Northern landscapes, whether recently transplanted or well-established, benefit from supplemental water during winter dry spells. Often, such spells are characterized by drying winds or unseasonably warm temperatures, further emphasizing the need for watering. Do not over water... just keep the plants moist.

Are You Going to get a wild Dogwood?
Transplanting Dogwoods from the woods is not a recommended idea for a good specimen: You must duplicate the growing environment of the forest if the tree is to transplant well, and even when these conditions are met, the survival rate is terrible. Further, you may be transporting insects and diseases into an area where they did not previously occur. If you still desire to do this, however, you should select a very small tree. Root prune the tree in spring and move it the following fall. Have the new planting site prepared before digging the tree. Survival will depend on how many shallow feeder roots you move, not the amount of soil. Dig on a cool day and keep roots moist at all times. Only transplant when the tree is dormant.
Dogwoods will grow in a variety of soil types but require good drainage. The best soil is a moist, fertile loam with slightly acidic pH (5.2 to 6.0) similar to a forest floor. Dogwoods prefer a soil that is high in organic matter. For beds incorporate a 2- to 4-inch layer of organic matter such as pine bark mulch or compost in the soils near the root mass.
Plant Habit or Use: large shrub
The dogwood is a tough tree. Dogwood wood is very heavy, tough, and resistant to abrasion. It is used to be found in making shutters for weaving, wedges for splitting wood, and golf clubs.
