Orders are for Fall Season

 

 

Fall Season our trees are not yet dormant. As such, we ship the plants in containers.

Fall shipping season will be coming to an end in mid November. Last day to place a Fall order will be November 11th 2021

 

 We do not recommend fall plantings for USDA plant zone 5.

 

If you are planting in USDA Zone 6 or 7  for this fall season your window for a successful acclimation from our warm plant zone of 8b in Florida to zone 6.  We recommend a Spring order or planting, for zone 6 & 7 this late in the planting season.

 Due to high demand of our trees an order placed today will not ship out until a few weeks.

Ideally it would be best to plant young trees coming from Florida in late September for plant zones 6 and in October for plant zones 7.

You will want to protect your young trees from any frosts and freezes or delay shipping to our spring bareroot/dormant season.

 

 

Fall orders are shipped by USDA Plant zones.

Plant Zones 6: late September
Plant Zones 7-8: October–November
Plant Zones 8-9: November

Pruning Pear trees should be pruned annually in the winter when they are dormant. Please refer to the Pruning section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.
Fertilization It is not recommended to fertilize trees at the time of planting or young trees. Excessive fertilizing may cause premature fruit drop. Apply a balanced slow release fertilizer after the tree is established and begins to break dormancy in spring.
Watering Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.
