Should you buy the shrubs and trees you see at the garden center now or do you have to wait until fall?
While the saying that “fall is for planting” is true, the idea that you can’t plant in the summer is not. If you see a beautiful shrub, tree, or perennial that you just can’t pass up, then don’t! You never know if it’ll still be in stock when the cooler temperatures of fall come around, so sometimes it’s better to get the plant you love and get it in the ground ASAP. You can plant those beautiful trees, shrubs, and perennials in your garden now and with a little extra care and attention, they will do just as well as if you waited until fall.
