Yesterday I submitted my order to the Saratoga County Soil & Water Conservation District Spring 2008 Bare-root Seedling Program:
10 red osier dogwood
10 common lilac
10 blue spruce
The red osier dogwood I will plant along the top of the remaining unplanted l&s slope; the lilacs B and I will plant in the lilac thicket, which needs some new blood; and the blue spruce we’ll plant on the hill near the barn (to the left of the barn in the “barn through the seasons” series).
I love this program. Two years ago we ordered balsam fir transplants and Rosa rugosa seedlings, all of which seem to be doing pretty well.
