Fedco Tree Sale – Packing Up Your Trees
We had not succeeded in snagging a carriage to carry our tree treasures in – they were in high demand – so we found a staff person to write up a tally of our purchases and then headed to a cash register.
One friendly staff person rang me up while another wrapped the roots of each of our trees carefully in damp sawdust and plastic. The wrapper cheerfully gave my husband planting instructions and answered questions while he worked.
We discovered that our somewhat rocky soil would be fine for our little orchard, but we needed gypsum to offset the clay, and that was in a warehouse up the hill, along with the organic potato tubers my husband wanted.
More staff were wrapping at each table. They had it down to a science!
THE FEDCO TREE SALE WILL CONTINUE ON FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 6-7 FROM 9:00AM-3:00PM.
