Busting the Myths!

Why Autumn is a great season for planting.

Myths about planting in the fall:

These are a few myths we want to bust about planting trees and shrubs this time of year.  They aren’t true!  Fall is one of the BEST times of year to get those beauties in the ground. We are going to share the nitty gritty of why with you right here, right now.

Myth #1 - I don't know if the tree is alive.

The leaves, yes, will be falling off deciduous trees and shrubs over the next month or two.  But your plant is still alive.  In fact, Trees and Shrubs do 80% of their rooting in the fall!  80%!!!  Fall is a great time to plant.All that energy that had been going into keeping those leaves green and strong is now being directed into the root systems.

Planting new items in the fall, with proper watering techniques, ensures that you are giving the best possible focus on establishing those new plants faster. And because the plants are focused on rooting they will have stronger and deeper roots. Come spring, the leaves will be back – better, stronger and faster for having given the roots some focused time to proliferate.

Myth #2 – If the tree is going dormant, I should wait and plant in the spring.

While you can plant any time of year, and spring is a great time to do so, we highly recommend planting in the fall.  New plants focus their energy into the root system rather than the leaves. This means they will establish themselves more quickly in the fall.  There are some key advantages to planting in each season, in spring the variety and size options tend to be greater, though we do bring in truckloads of fresh product specifically for fall planting.

Why do we do this?  Well, we love our customers.  We love having a huge selection year-round for our beloved customers.  And, we LOVE helping give these beautiful plants the best possible start to their new life in your yard (and as we mentioned they do 80% of their rooting in the fall, so…..it’s a win-win-win, major, jumbo, love-fest for us all).

Myth #3 – I won't know the shape of the plant.

The shape of the tree with or without the leaves on it is going to change, drastically so, over the next few years.  No matter what size tree you buy now, the canopy will develop, branch out and expand.  The full-grown, mature shape of a tree (or shrub) will always be how the tree will grow, but the tree you buy today will not be the same in a year – it will literally branch out.Trees and plants to 80% of their root growth in the fall

We find that choosing the tree without leaves better allows you to select a tree with strong structure and balanced branching. This bare bones beauty will only be enhanced when the leaves come on in spring.  And, the faster it establishes a strong, healthy root system, the faster it will grow those leaves. (we are noticing a theme here now, aren’t we?  Spring=flowers, Fall=rooting powers)

Myth #4 – It’s too cold to plant.

Is it though?  Unless the ground is frozen and you can’t dig a hole, you can still plant a tree or shrub.  If you are able to dig up the soil, those roots will be able to grow into the soil.  And, maybe this is TMI, but I sure do prefer all that sweaty work when the temps are lower. Actually, I have my brothers do it for me because they are the best….but, even still, cooler weather makes them happier to help.

There really isn’t a reason to let the cooler weather stop you from planting. Unless, that is, you just do not like being outside if it dips below 60 degrees.  In which case, we raise our cup of hot cocoa to you. We will be here in the summer when you are ready to be outdoors again.

Myth #5 – You don't need to water in winter.

Winter watering is a concern.  Many people think that snow melt is enough to water trees and shrubs, but it really isn’t.  That soft, fluffy snow melts down into very little water and does not reach those roots.  Unless we have another winter like 2022/2023, you will need to have a plan for winter watering.

use ice to water in winterIt’s important to remember that the ground does not stay frozen all the time, it thaws and refreezes throughout the season. When it thaws, those little roots are active and searching for a water source.  Even trees you planted in early spring of this year will still need winter watering - a little snow melt won’t do the trick.

Turning your sprinklers on in winter isn’t necessary, in fact it is detrimental. However, getting some deep soaking into those roots at least once a month is imperative. If you don’t want to hook up your hose in winter, there is a great trick that Rod Glover recommends: dump a few tumblerfuls of ice around the root zone – this way, when it does thaw enough to melt, the ice will water the tree at the exact right time.  And, most folks have ice makers that keep those glossy cubes coming all day, so it takes barely any time or effort.

SO, there you have it.  Myth-busting complete.  Combine this with Ryan's video on water saving techniques, pop in some gorgeous fall blooming perennials, and you have the powerful formula for true fall gardening success.

And, as always, we are here to help with any questions you may have.

See you soon!

How Planting Trees Affects Air Quality

It’s Planting Time: Start Seeding Indoors!

Fall is fast approaching, and one of the things we love seeing is the beautiful change of colors in the trees. From green to golds, oranges, reds, yellows – autumn puts on a spectacular show.

Get a Ticket to the Show!

This spectacular show happens to come right after one of the best times of year to plant new trees and shrubs! It’s like mother nature thought “OK, what cool thing can I do so they will get to immediately enjoy the fruits of their labor? Oh, I know! Pretty fall colors while the roots start establishing".

While there are benefits to planting in spring and summer (beautiful spring flowers, easy shade in heat, fruit growth, cleaner air) the best time of year to plant a new trees is as the heat of summer starts to fade and the plants ready themselves for dormancy. This window of time between is when trees shift their energy from growing those beautiful flowers, leaves, fruits and start promoting deeper root growth to establish the tree more.

Establishing Your New Tree

Establishing a tree properly takes a bit of extra care in the first few years, so being aware of that powerful fall root growth is important. The deeper the roots grow, the less water you’ll need to give them as they get established. After a few years, most trees need very little additional water as their roots will have spread enough to find adequate water sources to keep the tree growing and strong.

Learn more about how to properly plant and water new trees here - and do not forget the importance of winter watering. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with information as winter approaches.

Planting in the Fall

Back to fall planting - In addition to giving your new tree the best possible start, autumn is a great time of year to buy new trees and shrubs because they are usually on sale!

Most stores have stopped bringing in new stock by now and put whatever is left on sale in order to move it out before winter…..but, here at Glover Nursery, we do the opposite. We bring in fresh new plants and instantly put them on sale. Why do we do that? Well, we know that it is such a great time of year to plant and we want to give our customers a great reason to take advantage of the season.

Glover Nursery Loves our Customers!

We love our customers so we started our fall sale early! Check out our September sale list here.

Now, if you are ready to add some trees to your landscape, come down and see us any time. We're open 8am-6pm Monday through Saturday. You can also join our Facebook Group and stay up to date with current projects, sales, photo contests, plus other gardening tips and tricks.

I came by today to check out the sale. I almost turned around because the construction made it such... a pain to get there. The workers weren't very helpful, hence the low rating. I was right next to a lady who asked about the sales and one of the workers just told her to walk around. I bought a raspberry bush and they didn't give me the 30% off discount, but I had already left and didn't want to go back. Meh.read more

I only gave one star because you have to give at least one. If you are a contractor do not send... your customers here to find what they want. Their process of getting contractor pricing is a joke and they treat you like they don’t want your business. Plus they basically have armed guards protecting every exit that treat you like you are a thief. So if you are a contractor trying to make a living then I suggest sending them somewhere else. When I complained to them about the situation, they said that their sales are just fine without contractors. So I personally will never send another customer there. I hope other contractors will choose to do the same.read more

First of all, Glover nursery is great, they have vast array of trees, shrubs, plants,... "accessories", really just about ANYTHING you could want. There are an ample number of employees, who are knowledgeable, helpful and kind. However I'd like to single out one employee in particular, Kylie. I was looking for something related to gardening, but still a bit out of the "norm" for items that typically would be stocked at a nursery. Even though it was something they didn't sell (or make money on), Kylie took the time, made calls to help me find EXACTLY what I had been searching for, and then followed up promptly with me to give me the "source" who could provide it. To me, she absolutely went "above and beyond'! In the future I will definitely be going back to Glover!!!read more

Let me first say that I really liked your sales rep (Amber) outside of that, what an atrocious... experience! I fell in love with the scent of your climbing rose “Rise Up Amberness” so I bought one climber and one regular rose bush on Saturday. It’s now Monday and I had to throw both of them in the trash, which broke my heart.Most of the roses weren’t deadheaded properly, but figured I could simply fix that at home, boy was I wrong! I didn’t even have these roses for two days and the new blooms had wilted just like they had in your nursery. Upon further inspection, I found that there’s a thrip infestation! The wilted blooms weren’t spent blooms, but a result from a sick plant that shouldn’t have been sold in the first place, let alone at full price!I’m not new to gardening and understand that pests come with the territory, but why would I spend almost a $100 between these two bushes just to have to wean both back to health while possibly infesting the rest of my garden that I’ve worked so hard on?!If anyone would’ve even bothered to check to see why the blooms were wilting so quickly they would’ve seen what the problem was. Now I’m stuck with having to go to another nursery to fix a problem that should never have been mine to begin with.read more

Stopped by on a whim, ended up buying a tree and 15 other plants for our yard. Amber was so kind... and helpful. we were very happy with what we chose. Since we weren’t planning on buying plants that day we did not have our truck with us, and it was Saturday closing time. The Employees were so kind and offered to hold our purchased plants until Monday when we could return to pick them up. When we came back to pick up the plants the employee at will call checked our receipt very carefully and informed us that there had been a mistake and we had been charged for the wrong tree. He said that we could not take the tree we had picked. I asked “well this is the tree we want, so what do we need to do?” He treated us like some sort of criminals!! This was not our mistake we paid what we were told on Saturday. He personally escorted us back to the cashier to pay the difference, like we were gonna make a run for it?! Not upset about paying the difference for the tree but upset with how rude the employee was toward us especially since this was their mistake.read more

Overall a 5 star experience most times, but I found it odd today when purchasing a plant that I'd... never grown before and needed information on. I stood in line at the info desk for awhile before an older gentleman employee asked me what questions I had. Instead of answering, he simply referred me to the planting instructions which came with the plant even after I explained that I'd read the plastic tab and still had additional questions that the tab didn't cover. Google was more helpful, but I wanted the experience from a grower for this region's weather/soil/environment.I'd purchased the plant already from them before waiting in line, otherwise I'd probably have just not bothered given the cost and their disinterest in wanting to help it grow.I'll still come back given the huge range of plants that are not always found elsewhere in the valley, but I wont' bother asking for help on a species.read more

Staying Closed on Sundays makes Saturdays so crowded that lines are uncomfortable and the tiny... parking lot is genuinely dog eat dog. They used to be open on Sundays.

We love Glover Nursery. We're from northern Davis County so we don't make it often, but when we do... it's a good experience. The ONLY reason for the lack of 5 stars, is because we've called ahead to confirm inventory and shown up to discover that the info over the phone was inaccurate and they didn't have what we asked for. I give the benefit of the doubt that maybe the items sold between our phone call and arrival, but in speaking to other employees they'd tell us they hadn't had them in stock for weeks.Oh well, they have an awesome selection of other items and the employees are always helpful and knowledgeable. We love coming here and looking around.read more

This is the third year in a row that we have purchased our Christmas tree at this nursery. We have... had very few issues with the trees themselves and the customer service here is top notch.The gentlemen who help take the tree to our car and tie it down are always very kind and professional. They do a great job every time. We haven't had any issues with the trees sliding around on the car and they have never caused any damage to our cars.The customer service has always been very professional as well. They are considerate people who always make sure we are happy with our trees.The only issue we had was the first tree we purchased from them. It did dry out a little quicker than we had planned but luckily it was very close to Christmas, so it was no problem. They have a good selection of trees and carry everything from little tiny two foot trees to enormous 10 foot plus trees.I highly recommend this nursery, not only for Christmas trees, but also for gardening all year long. The staff is always knowledgeable and great to work with.read more

We've been to many garden centers over the years and BY FAR Glover is the best around. Everything... we've purchased from them has been high quality and has done very well in our garden. We've also used their delivery services and well as their planting services- both of which were wonderful! They arrive on time and the work is done very professionally. They also have staff that are very knowledgable about the plants and products they sell, which is something other nurseries are seriously lacking with their employees, so that's something I appreciate! All of our purchases from trees, to flowers to veggies have always done great, I couldn't rave about them more!read more

My girlfriend and I decided as first time plant buyers to make this the first nursery we visited in... our quest to find the perfect ensemble of pet safe, shade friendly, and easy to maintain plants because of the rave reviews Glover's has (which I spent an hour reading through simply because they were pleasant to read). Rett kindly greeted us within about 2 minutes of us starting to browse the rows and rows of plants. He asked what we were looking for. We explained and he quickly pointed us to which spots of the nursery would have plants fitting our criteria. He taught us where to look to find plant information which was very helpful to us newbies. He provided wise words: to start small with our plants and to grow our garden as we became more comfortable with our green thumbs. He answered every question we had with knowledge and the occasional--and very welcomed--joke! We will always come back to Glover's after this amazing experience on our very first visit. Thanks Glover's and thanks Rett!read more

They have some native plants that you can't find anywhere else. And a good selection of trees

This is my preferred nursery. There are so many people who offer tips and advice and you can return... stuff and get your money back. There are so many options of different plants too! I was looking for bushes and OMG -- so many varieties. Worth the trip across the valley to visit Glover's.read more

I love this nursery SO much. Every time I come here the staff is friendly and helpful and if they... don’t know the answer, they find someone who does. I will only purchase my plants from Glover, they absolutely thrive! And their soil is incredible! Not to mention it’s good for the soul to just walk around and take in how gorgeous this place is. Thank you Glover Nursery!!!read more

Incredible selection. A sales rep. named Lynn was incredibly helpful to me and took an hour to... listen to what I wanted, present options, and seemed very knowledgeable. He even made sure everything was loaded properly and protected from wind during transport. I appreciated this because it's such a busy time for them! I'll definitely be back and thank you, Lynn!read more
