Our experienced crews can plant any of the plant material you purchase from Wasco Nursery & Garden Center. Our team will contact J.U.L.I.E. to mark for any underground utilities at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled planting date. The professional planting crews of Wasco Nursery follow proper planting techniques and mulch plant material carefully so as to not put mulch on too thick or around the trunk (a.k.a. “volcano mulching”). We use an organic starter fertilizer loaded with beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi when we plant trees and leave you with care and watering instructions so you can get your tree or shrubs off on the right foot. Wasco Nursery offers an industry leading three year plant guarantee on all plant material we install. We also offer an Online Sick Plant Call Form so you can submit concerns about any plant material purchased at Wasco Nursery. Our Customer Service Manager will contact you after your concern is submitted to discuss your plants and their health. We often make house calls to look at struggling plant material so please don’t hesitate to contact us so we can help you get your plants back on the right track.
Wasco Nursery is not responsible for damage done to irrigation lines or unmarked underground service lines such as dog fences, landscape lighting, etc.
If you are experiencing a problem with a tree or shrub purchased at and / or planted by Wasco Nursery please contact our Customer Service Manager directly at 630.485.4381 or fill visit our Online Sick Plant Call Form.
Cooler air temperatures mean much less stress on the plant and more energy for root establishment.
Ground temperatures cool much slower than air temperatures in the Fall allowing for a long season of root establishment (Roots will grow as long as soil temperatures stay above 40 degrees F., which is typically late November)
Ground temperatures take a long time to warm in spring meaning root growth and establishment takes far longer in spring than Fall
Natural moisture is more available in Fall for plants allowing for easier establishment in the landscape and less need for customers to apply water in most Fall seasons.
Fall planting and establishment in the landscape allows plants to grow with far less stress the following spring.
Starting in September, trees can be chosen by you and harvested from our growing fields in October & November. The trees can be replanted almost immediately thereby eliminating most of the stress caused by sitting above ground for an extended period of time.
Fall offers a greater selection - You can choose from over 5,000 trees we have growing in our fields.
