The Delta County Extension Office reminds landowners that Valentine's Day is Feb. 14 — just around the corner — and, to stay in your sweetheart's good graces, it's time to be thinking of bon-bons and jewelry and seedling trees ... Wait! Seedling trees!
Yes, it's time to be thinking about purchasing seedling trees, which are available through your local extension office now!
Our trees come to you direct from the Colorado State Forest Service nurseries. Just like valentines, our seedlings come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including deciduous trees, shrubs and conifers, and you can purchase our seedlings as either bare root or potted. You can order now through early April, and your trees will arrive in mid-May.
Our deciduous shrubs bear edible fruit which is great for cooking and preserving and they also make great windbreaks and nesting cover! Just $26.00 for a lot of 25 shrubs!
The extension office is also offering free Seedling Tree Workshops where you can get information on planning, planting and care of your trees. Workshops will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the following locations: Delta County Courthouse, Room 234 on March 4; Friendship Hall on the Montrose County Fairgrounds on March 4 and 28; and at the Mesa County Fairgrounds, C Building, on March 11.
For an order form or more information, stop by or call your local extension office. The Delta Extension Office can be reached at 874-2195.blog comments powered by Disqus
