Great Gardening Tips
Info On Sales and Classes
With the last (hopefully) snow on Monday April 30th and the warm thaw on May 1 our plants got a crucial drink of water to help them push leaves. As their roots wake up as the ground thaws you will start to see the leaf buds swell. It is time to think about pruning and clearing out the debris from the fall. Leaves and perennials should be cleaned up. It will help so much with keeping pests from the garden. Right now is a good time to cut out black knot, remember to sterilize with rubbing alcohol or bleach water after each cut and bag up and throw out what you trimmed off.
We are full of annuals and bedding plants and our perennials are ready. Come in and get a big dose of spring. The store looks beautiful.

Cannor Nurseries Ltd. has a great selection of caliper hardy trees. Caliper trees are for the customer who needs a large tree to comply with landscape regulations for a new home, if you are looking for a tree to fit into a mature landscape or if you need instant privacy. A caliper tree is a mature tree that measures 5 centimeters (2 inches) or larger around the base of the trunk of the tree. We carry caliper trees up to 10 centimeters in select varieties. Caliper sizing applies to deciduous trees which lose their leaves in the fall.
We have prairie hardy Ornamental Flowering Crab Apples, these are the beautiful pink, red and white flowering trees you see everywhere in the spring. Some are non-fruiting like Spring Snow and most of the others like Royal Gordon have insignificant, berry sized fruit. Other flowering ornamental trees include, Snow Bird and Toba Hawthorns, Amur Cherry, Mayday, Japanese Tree Lilac and Schubert Chokecherry. Many of these work very well in small yards. We also have these trees in potted sizes as well.
