Plant Delivery!

October 3, 2018

Perennial deliver day! So exciting!

So, I wanted to get a jump on next season by planting perennials during the fall. We'll direct sow some cool flowers (more on that later), and in early October put in about 300 plants including hydrangeas, peonies, lilacs, clematis, and woody greens like ninebark and pussy willows. Check out this delivery!

My helper…Kolar is completely unimpressed, but I am thrilled. Plus, I successfully offloaded the pallet from a 53' trailer with our new tractor forks. Winning!

Fast forwarding a bit - after a long weekend of planing, all these little guys are snuggled into their new home. On the to-do list, is adding drip line irrigation on top of the fabric. We are working with Atlantic Irrigation to design a controlled watering system that will also link to the drip tape in the annual beds (pictured in the far center of this photo). For now, we’ll make do with hand watering, but looking forward to automation! Coming soon…
