…for woody plants and perennials.
Often, garden owners don’t realize that new plants that are put into the soil in fall have a jump on those that are first planted in spring. This holds true for all garden plants, whether in planters, with root balls, or bare-root. The reason is simple: the fine root hairs that are important for water and nutrient absorption grow longer during the winter months — as long as there’s no frost on the ground — and anchor the plant in its new location. Perennials, shrubs, and trees planted in fall will be securely rooted by the springtime and will easily produce a first budding.
