But seriously, if you want to dig while the weather is good and give yourself some time to do those necessary blue stake checks, soil percolation tests, AND start building up good healthy soil microbes in anticipation of those new trees you’ve ordered – then why not start in October or November before the holidays take over your calendar?
Make your plan, pick up your supplies, and prepare your holes early – in the next couple months on your own schedule. This way your trees can come home to a beautiful new hole, get planted quickly, and settle in with a minimal amount of stress. We all know they will get enough of that once the summer heat returns.
We have made arrangements to open up our General Store for ONE day only, and we will be stocked with the basic elements you need to prep your tree holes. If you have pre-ordered for January, let us know and we will shift these items to an October pick-up.
You will be able to pick up:
Farmer Greg’s Tree Planting Mix – for in the hole
Tank’s Green Stuff Compost – for additional help if your soil is mostly dead dirt
Greg’s Tree Well Top Mulch – for on top of the soil to protect your new basins from the heat
As well as
Urban Farm’s Mace Own Mix combos: in either the Single Tree or Multi Tree Bundle (perfect for 5 trees)
– Mycorrhizae – 5 oz or 10 oz
– Worm Castings – 5 lbs
– AZOMITE – 5 lbs or 44 lbs
And we’ll have water filters and a few Moisture meters on hand as well.
Please NOTE: We will NOT have any BIOFLORA Crumbles Fertilizer this weekend!
General Store Location: 4549 N 7th Street, Phoenix.
OPEN ONE DAY ONLY: Saturday, October 14th.
HOURS: 9am to 3pm
(This is a borrow and seasonal location only, so we are not here year-round)
