Is it too early to plant in March?
Not if you are planting Christmas Trees!
Kaleidoscope Farms kicks it into high gear this time of year. The over 2,300 baby seedlings have been shipped to us and are ready to be planted. When we get the trees they arrive by ground shipment and are packaged in boxes. The sooner they get in the ground the better it is for the trees survival rate. This year we planted 4 varieties such as Canaan fir, White pine, Norway Spruce and Scotch pine. Each of these little trees will be planted by our family and each tree will be planted by a Reese hand. The trees planted this year will be ready for our customers in the year 2018-2019. It takes a tree about 1 year to grow 1 foot. The different varieties grow at different rates. Pines and firs grow the fastest while the spruces take a little longer.
