What to Plant in the Spring in Fort Collins

Spring is a great time for planting in Fort Collins, Colorado. Wait until the soil warms up and begins to soften, generally in mid-late spring. Planting new plants in soil that is still cold and hard will not be favorable for a developing root system. Planting your new tree, shrub, or perennial at this time of year will give the plant enough time to establish its root system before the intense heat of the summer hits. This will ensure that your plant is well prepared for the upcoming seasons and will enable it to grow and thrive. 

What to Plant in the Summer in Fort Collins

Planting in the summer months in Northern Colorado is difficult and not recommended. While some plants may be able to tolerate the extreme heat and dry climate, many plants cannot. The stress which the unrelenting sun puts on new plantings is often too much to handle. Whether it is a tree, shrub, or perennial, the plant will be focusing all of its energy on not shriveling under the sun instead of putting its energy towards establishing its root system. And without an established root system, the plant will not be able to efficiently acquire the water and nutrients it will need to withstand the intensity of summer in Colorado. That being said, we recommend that you do as much of your planting as possible in late spring or early fall. There are always exceptions, so if you have questions about a specific plant, please contact our nursery staff and they will help you make the best decision to ensure that your plant material will grow and thrive.

What to Plant in the Fall in Fort Collins

Similar to planting in the spring, the fall season is also ideal for planting any new trees, shrubs, or perennials. Early fall is best, as the heat of the summer has begun to die down. Planting at this time of the year ensures that your new plant material will have enough time to establish its roots before winter comes, while also ensuring that your new plant will not have to struggle through the extreme heat of summer. Don't wait too long though! If you do not give your plant enough time to establish its roots before freezing temperatures hit, the chances of it surviving through the winter are less. If you would like any more information or advice on when the best time is to plant your trees, shrubs, and perennials, please contact our nursery staff!
