Frequently Asked Questions

1. Pick up or Delivery

We encourage personal pick up at our nursery in Everett, ON. To help us serve you better and to ensure the availability of your order, please call at least three days prior to your pick-up date to schedule a pick up appointment.
We use Purolator for all deliveries; transit time is 1-2 business day, we will provide a freight quote prior to shipping. We ship to Ontario addresses only. We try to avoid shipping trees on any such date that would result in them sitting in a terminal over the weekend. All shipments are at the buyer's own risk, our liabilities cease upon delivery to carrier. Customers may also use their own carrier.

2. Caring for your Trees

Upon receiving your trees, they should be kept in the unopened box in a refrigerated, dark place until the day of the event. The seedlings can be maintained in these conditions for 5-7 days. If there is no access to refrigerated storage then the trees can be kept in a cool, dark place (such as a garage or cellar) for 2-3 days.

3. Planting instructions

We will provide planting instructions with your order based on the time of year you are purchasing the trees. We can provide the planting instructions ahead of time if you need to make gift tags for the seedlings.

4. How are trees packaged

Our trees are packaged in a clear Eco Compostable bag (made from plants) and tied with a decorative ribbon (white ribbon for White Spruce and blue ribbon for Colorado Spruce).

Recommended Planting Instructions 
  • Select where you want to plant your seedling.
  • Plant at least 2 meters from any building.
  • Plant in full sunlight, rather than in the shade.
  • Using a garden spade or shovel remove any surface vegetation to a depth of 5 cm.
  • Dig a hole approximately 30 cm x 30 cm and about 20 cm deep.
  • Break the soil into a fine condition and put most of this loose soil back into the hole.
  • Make a small hole in the centre of the soil.
  • Remove the ribbon and plastic bag from the seedling.
  • Dip the seedling in water for 1 minute before placing it in the hole.
  • The hole should be deep enough to contain the seedling plug.
  • Hold the seedling in an upright position and with your hand firm the soil around and over the plug and covering the plug with about 1 cm of soil.
  • Firm the soil (but do not pack) around the seedling that you have just planted.
  • If available, put 2 cm of mulch over the entire area that you prepared for planting.
  • Be prepared to water your seedling at least weekly until it is well established.
