  • The Adcock’s Difference

    Many nurseries today simply pot-up small plant liners to larger containers and never touch them again until they’re sold. This is certainly NOT the case at Adcock’s. It takes a lot of time and effort to produce quality shrubs and trees.

    It all begins with quality liners, or young plants, that we begin with. Other critical factors include the potting media used in growing; the quality of fertilizer that’s used; disease and insect control programs; pruning techniques; carefully managed irrigation schedules and much more.

    Pruning and Shearing the Adcock’s Way

    At Adcock’s Nursery we use a combination of selective pruning and shearing techniques. Selective pruning is all done by hand using by-pass pruners and loppers and is very labor intensive. Selective pruning gives the plant a more untouched, natural look. It also allows us to better direct the growth of the plant without having unsightly stubs.

    We want our trees to have extremely straight central leaders to encourage growth in a structurally sound direction. We also prune to eliminate narrow crotch angles between branches and trunks. Narrow crotch angles can be extremely weak and are prone to splitting, which can be hazardous in the landscape.

    Viburnum obovatum 'Raulston Hardy' carries a tight, dwarf habit and tends to be hardier than the Mrs. Schiller's. Has a fine texture and small, narrow leaves on a very tight bun-shaped plant. The plant covers itself in clusters of white flowers in April but will often begin flowering in fall and continue sporadically until spring. Flowers are followed by red fruits which become black and are highly favored by birds. In mild winters, it will remain mostly evergreen although often taking on purplish tones after frost. In colder areas, it will become semi-evergreen to fully deciduous.
