Planting shrubs and trees - When?

Updated: May 2

At almost any time of the year, there are gardeners who are new to the garden and landscape profession. Some will ask if it's okay to plant shrubs and trees at that time of year.  The answer is yes for the most part.  Professional landscapers as well as many seasoned gardeners know you can plant anytime you can get a shovel in the ground (anytime the ground is not frozen).  As you drive around any new subdivision, you will find landscapers busy landscaping a project.  The primary key is to keep newly planted material moist.  Over-watering may cause the soil will sour, possibly create a fungus; under-watering and the plant may possibly die.
