TIPS FOR MAINTAINING TOP-GRAFTS & TREE-FORMED SHRUBS

Snowball Viburnum Treeform

The heads of top-grafted shrubs should be lightly pruned on an annual basis with a focus on keeping the top-graft rounded and neat. Pruning the top-graft must be done with recognition of its effect on flower development. In the case of lilac, it is best to prune immediately after flowering so as to allow next years blooms to develop. It is also critical to remove leafy shoots that arise from along the inter-stem and at its base. These sprouts and suckers can quickly overpower the top-grafted shrub (see adjacent photo), destroying the beauty of the grafted cultivar. An alternative to top-grafted shrubs are tree -formed shrubs. Tree-formed shrubs are produced by training up and retaining a single dominant stem for shrub cultivars. With a tree-formed shrub there is still the need for removing lateral sprouts and basal shoots.

The failure to remove basal sprouts can result in a disfigured top-graft

TIPS FOR GROWING ROSES 

A rose should be planted in a well-aerated, sunny location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight each day.



Roses can be fertilized on a monthly basis until early August and watered once per week, preferably in the morning.



Watering roses at soil level, under the foliage, reduces leaf wetness and limits disease development.



Removal of spent flowers and fruit will promote the development of new rose buds.

TIPS FOR OVERWINTERING EVERGREENS 

Evergreens should receive abundant moisture in fall before freeze up. Remember that evergreens lose water from their foliage all winter, but are unable to take up replacement moisture from the frozen soil.



Rather than wrapping an evergreen to protect it from winter sun and drying winds, install a burlap wall on either side of the plant. Ensure adequate air circulation; the burlap should not touch the foliage.



Broad-leafed evergreen species such as Boxwood (Buxus) are subject to winter-kill in zones 2 and 3. Plant in a sheltered, partially shaded area that receives ample, lasting snow cover.

POLLINATION REQUIRED All fruit tree and small fruit varieties that require a different pollinizer cultivar have been marked with this symbol. Cross pollination refers to the transfer of pollen between flowers of geneticallygenetically-distinct plants. Pollinators, usually insects, are vectors for pollen movement For apples and pears, two different cultivars must be growing in close proximity for successful fruit production. Plums and apricots have strong preferences for certain pollinizers. Pure wild plums or the cultivar ‘Toka’ are the best pollinizers for hybrid plums.

FRUIT POLLINATION INFORMATION UNDERSTANDING CROSS-POLLINATION Cross pollination refers to the transfer of pollen between flowers of genetically-distinct plants. For cross-pollinated species at least two different cultivars from the same group must be planted in relatively close proximity for successful pollination and fruit production. Insects will cross pollinate a fruit tree when other suitable pollinator trees are growing within 450 feet. However, cross pollination may be hampered by cool, rainy weather or the lack of pollinating insects.

FRUIT TREE POLLINATION Most hardy fruit trees require cross pollination by another cultivar from the same group. 1. APPLE: Require cross pollination for fruit set. All apples, crabapples and applecrabs are closely related and can be used to cross pollinate each other. Ornamental crabapples pollinate fruiting cultivars. 2. APRICOT: Produce more reliably when pollinated by other apricots or Nanking Cherry. 3. CHERRY PLUM: Require cross pollination by another cherry plum cultivar or Sandcherry. 4. PLUM: Require cross pollination by a compatible plum cultivar or native plum species. Hybrid plums may not be cross pollinated by another hybrid plum. Cultivars such as ‘Brookgold’ (Prunus salicina) and ‘Toka’ (complex hybrid) can serve as pollinizers for hybrid cultivars such as ‘Pembina’ and ‘Tecumseh’. 5. PEAR: Require cross pollination by another pear cultivar or Ussurian Pear seedling.

SMALL FRUIT POLLINATION Most hardy fruit shrubs are self-fertile and do not require cross pollination by another cultivar. 1. BLUEBERRY: Many are self-pollinating, however, planting multiple cultivars often results in larger berries and better yields. 2. CHERRY: Self pollinating; only one variety required for fruit production. 3. CURRANT & GOOSEBERRY: Self pollinating; only one variety required for fruit production. However, if currants are grown near gooseberries then yields can be even greater. 4. GRAPE: Many are self-pollinating, however some hybrids (e.g. Minnesota78) have non-viable pollen and require a compatible pollinator for fruit production. 5. HASKAP (HONEYBERRY): Require cross pollination by another cultivar with similar flowering time (page 63). 6. RASPBERRY: Self pollinating; only one variety required for fruit production. 7. SASKATOON: Self pollinating; only one variety required for fruit production 8. SEA BUCKTHORN: Fruiting cultivars require cross pollination by a different cultivar with male flowers 9. STRAWBERRY: Self pollinating; only one variety required for fruit production

HARVESTING FRUIT Colour, firmness and flavour are useful indicators to determine when fruit are ready to pick. To determine when apples are ripe, look for the following: (1) green portions of the skin start to turn yellow; (2) seed coats turn brown; (3) flesh changes from tough and pulpy to crisp and juicy; and (4) fruit stem separates from the tree. Pears should be picked when still firm and somewhat green in colour. If left to tree -ripen, they may turn brown and soft. Plums and apricots may be left on the tree until ready to eat.

HARDINESS ZONE MAP A zone rating is an attempt to match a plant’s survival with a set of environmental conditions. These conditions include minimum winter temperature, frost free period, snow cover, and wind speed. Most zone maps include a list of indicator plant species whose survival depends on certain climatic variables. Remember that zone ratings are only a guideline for plant selection. Plant survival is also impacted by bodies of water, wind protection, snow cover and urban heat islands. For this reason there will always be trees and shrubs that defy the odds and thrive under conditions very different from their zone rating. Nevertheless, there are limits to this flexibility and in most cases ignoring a plant’s zone rating is an invitation for winter damage. Typical winter damage on woody ornamentals includes winter browning, root injury, tip kill and bole cracking. The absence of snow combined with cold temperatures can have lethal effects on the roots of certain species. It is for this reason that rootstock must be carefully selected even when bud grafting hardy varieties. Ideally, seedling rootstock should be sourced from the harshest conditions in the region where the finished plant will be marketed. Tip kill and bole cracking are not only related to winter conditions but, more importantly, the onset of those conditions in the fall. Woody plants need adequate time and suitable conditions to set buds and enter dormancy prior to facing extreme cold. For example, an extreme September frost may be more damaging to a Silver Maple than a bitter cold spell in January.

An informed gardener will take note of plant hardiness when making plant selections. However, one should not hesitate to stretch the limits of ornamental species in the landscape through: 1) proper plant placement to take advantage of snow cover and shelter, and 2) careful application of fertilizer so as to allow proper fall shutdown.


These figures provide the pH status of topsoil in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Soil pH is reported as a logarithmic scale so that a single unit change in pH represents a 10-fold difference in conditions.

The impact of soil pH on tree performance cannot be overstated. At maturity, trees access water and nutrients from a large area of soil and it is very difficult to modify soil pH on this scale. Plants that are especially sensitive to alkaline pH include the following:  Amur Maple  Freeman Maple  Red Maple  Blueberry

There is considerable variation in soil pH across each province and tree planting lists for communities should be customized with this fact in mind.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS


Pruning is a horticultural practice that alters the form and growth of a plant. Based on aesthetics and science, pruning can also be considered preventive maintenance. Many problems may be prevented by pruning correctly during formative years for a tree or shrub.

REASONS FOR PRUNING 1.

Prune to promote plant health o Remove dead or dying branches injured by disease, severe insect infestation, animals, storms, or other adverse mechanical damage. o Remove branches and branch stubs that rub together.

2.

Prune to maintain plants; intended purposes in a landscape, such as: o encouraging flower and fruit development, o maintaining a dense hedge, or o maintaining a desired tree form or special garden forms.

3.

Prune to improve plant appearance Appearance in the landscape is essential to a plant’s usefulness. For most landscapes, a plant’s natural form is best. Avoid shearing shrubs into tight geometrical forms that can adversely affect flowering. When plants are pruned well, it is difficult to see that they have been pruned! Prune to: o control plant size, o keep evergreens well-proportioned

4.

Prune to protect people and property. o Prune branches that obscure vision at intersections. o For security purposes, prune shrubs that obscure the entry to your home.

TIMING OF PRUNING

PRUNING LANDSCAPE PLANTS

PRUNING LANDSCAPE PLANTS

Shrubs that bloom early in the growing season on last year’s growth should be pruned immediately after they finish blooming: chokeberry golden currant elder forsythia lilac double flowering plum saskatoon early blooming spirea weigela Shrubs grown primarily for their foliage rather than flowers should be pruned in spring, before growth begins: alpine currant barberry burning bush cistena cherry dogwood honeysuckle ninebark smokebush sumac Shrubs that bloom on new growth may be pruned in spring before growth begins. Plants with marginally hardy stems such as clematis and shrub roses should be pruned back to live wood.

PRUNING HEDGES: After the initial pruning at planting, hedges need to be pruned often. Once the hedge reaches the desired height, prune new growth back whenever it grows another 6 to 8 inches. Prune to within 2 inches of the last pruning. Hedges may be pruned twice a year, in spring and again in mid-summer, to keep them dense and attractive.

PRUNING EVERGREENS: With few exceptions, evergreens (conifers) require little pruning. Different types of evergreens should be pruned according to their varied growth habits. o Pines only put on a single flush of tip growth each spring and then stop growing. Prune before these “candles” of new needles become mature. Pines seldom need pruning, but if you want to promote more dense growth, remove up to two-thirds of the length of newly expanded candles. Don’t prune further back than the current year’s growth. o Cedars and junipers grow continuously throughout the growing season. They can be pruned any time through the middle of summer. Even though these plants will tolerate heavy shearing, their natural form is usually most desirable, so prune only to correct growth defects.
