LET'S TALK ABOUT THOSE PARKING LOT CEDARS...
There are basically 3 ways to grow a cedar.
One way is to dig it bare root in the field in a ball in spring. The larger the cedar, the more important it is that it has a large root system to support itself, so it's not uncommon to find a large root ball with this type of cedar. To ensure they can be planted all season long, they are sometimes placed into pots to keep them upright, and to make them easier to handle.
Another way is to start it as a small cedar in a pot, and grow it from very young in progressively larger pots until it is a bigger plant with a dense complete root system. This 'container growing' means you have NO TRANSPLANT SHOCK, and with deep regular watering and feeding the first season it will grow and thrive.
At Grobe's... these are the only 2 ways we sell cedar.
The third way is to clear a field of old, field grown cedars and place THEM into plastic pots. As heavy root balls cost a lot to freight, the smaller this pot is, the cheaper it is for the seller. So, fewer roots go with the plant. Makes it easy to plant, and cheap to buy... but it is much harder on the cedar.
In fact, someone unsuspecting might believe it is a container grown plant. It isn't.
So what happens next? No roots to collect water and then this...
So.. does Grobe's offer an inexpensive quality cedar?
We do. But not for long, because they soon will be gone.
Our healthy container grown Emerald Pyramidal Cedars are 4'+ tall are regularly 54.99.

HASKAP? WHAT'S A HASKAP?
Haskaps are members of the honeysuckle family that offer edible berries much like a blueberry. They are also known as honeyberries. They grow very easily in our climate to about 4'+ tall and wide. Their 'claim to fame' is their great hardiness, adaptability, and the fact that the berries provide 5 times the anti-oxidants of blueberries.
At Grobe's we offer for 2012 three varieties. Two are the very best from the University of Saskatchewan breeding program, and the third is the very best pollinator available for them. They bear 'loads' of berries, usually starting within a year or two.
DO YOU NEED A POLLINATOR?
We believe you do - and so does the top researcher at the University of Saskatchewan where they were bred.
