Early blooming flowering trees and shrubs signal, "Spring is Coming!" These are very special plants in the landscape because they set the tone for spring by giving inspiration to an awakening landscape.
Royal Star Magnolia- This magnolia buds and flowers in late winter before it leafs out. Royal Star's are a sign that "Spring is Coming," and can be used as a specimen plant or large hedge. You can keep them full to the ground, or mushroom them by trimming off all lower branches. They grow to an average of 12-18 feet tall by 10-15 feet wide. They tend to create a lot of buzz in the landscape when in full bloom.
It's that time! We've made it through the holidays, and it's already time to start transitioning toward spring. Edibles are going to create some buzz this year. Wise Nurseries is working hard to set the standard for edible plant material in the Southeast. By maintaining high quality at competitive prices, and specializing in varieties that thrive in the Southeast, our trees are sure to please. Plus, most of our edibles come with picture tags with care instructions!
We currently have the nicest crop we've ever grown of apples, pears, peaches, plums and much more. Let's take a tour through some of our edible plant selections...
We have a large selection of properly pruned 15gal Nectarines and Peaches: including Fantasia, Babcock, Elberta, Donut and more. We take the time to properly prune them and keep them vase shaped, low, & well branched with open centers. This method is how the pros do it in the production orchards to allow good sunlight penetration and air flow. This pruning method also lowers pest and disease exposure while producing sweeter fruit that's easier to pick. These trees are ready to make an INSTANT ORCHARD in your back yard!
Christmas has passed, and 2014 is busting through the door... time sure does fly! With another year behind us, we would like to give a little insight into what to expect in 2014 as far as plant trends and concepts. The buzz these days is definitely landscapes with purpose; including edibles, natives and xeriscapes. Learning and implementing these concepts will put you on the cutting edge of the plant industry in 2014.
Edible Landscaping is the fastest growing trend in the industry. People are finding out how easy it is to design a landscape that not only adds beauty, but also gives back, putting healthy, high-quality, delicious food on the table. These concepts intrigue people, and give them the opportunity to be more connected to their yards. Edibles give people an interactive experience with their landscape. Consider also the ornamental qualities of a particular edible when plugging it into the landscape. Peaches and plums put on quite the show in the spring that could match any flowering cherry. Pears are not only loaded with spring flowers, but also have gorgeous red and yellow fall color. Use the new 'Veinte Cohol' banana plant to add a lush tropical look during the summer, while also growing tasty bananas. Blueberries make great hedges with spring flowers and fall color. Collards, kale and mustards make beautiful fall and winter annuals where accents are needed. The sky is the limit when landscaping with edibles; it just takes a little outside-the-box thinking.
