General Store – Soils Pick-up Day (Sunday)

November 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

URGENT UPDATE: Pick-up Day is Changed to SUNDAY, Nov 12th.

(The Veteran’s Day Parade is happening on Saturday and the streets will be closed, so we moved it to Sunday)

When is a good time to dig a hole for a new tree?
Before you plant the tree of course!

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 MORE 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 NOVEMBER pick-up. HOWEVER, we cannot reserve bags, so first-come, first serve this SUNDAY!
