Tree Planting for FNPS

Yesterday we hosted a tree planting meeting for the Folsom Native Plants Society. We potted 75 Crabapple, 50 Bald Cypress and 50 wild Plum trees. These trees will be given out to new members who sign up at the annual Spring Plant Show (March 21-22, 2009) which is sponsored by the St. Tammany Master Gardeners.

Late winter and early spring is the best time to plant trees and shrubs because the weather is cool and usually moist and the plants have time to become established before the weather becomes warm.
