We create spaced specimen plants by starting with seedlings or cuttings that are lined out in our nursery field. These young plants are grown for a period of 2 to 5 years with close spacing. During this time, they are cared for and pruned. When ready, we select only the strongest, most well-balanced plants to be transplanted with final spacing, then grown to a saleable size. The plants continue to be fertilized and pruned. All of our intermediates are grown as spaced specimens. Plants grown using this technique are noted in the wholesale gardening catalog.
