Shade Trees


Did you know that trees cut down on noise pollution? They also lower
air-conditioning costs in the summertime, absorb atmospheric
pollutants and provide clean, healthy air to breathe. They provide food
and shelter for wildlife and stabilize soil to prevent erosion. So what's
not to love about shade trees? All of our shade trees are container
grown to ensure better performance after planting.
We only use #1 grade stalk for our shade trees. This ensures a well
branched tree with a straight trunk. Choose from our wide selection of
maples, oaks, birch, linden and more.

7 Gallon Container in Ontario
5 Gallon Container in Western Markets.

Planting And Caring For Cedars

Our Cedars are back! Known for their height and fullness, cedars are a perfect option to create a living fence that will provide privacy in any space. They can also be planted as a feature in your garden. This year, we are offering customers three sizes to choose from:
How to Plant Emerald or Brandon Cedars

The 5-6' Emerald or Brandon Cedars should be planted approximately 2' apart. The spacing should be measured from the center to center of each cedar. The goal is to plant each cedar as close together without having them touch each other. Allow the plants to grow into each other on its own. If planted too closely it could cause part of cedars to turn brown. To encourage quick growth water and fertilize regularly and ensure that triple mix soil is used when planting.

  1. Dig hole twice the size of the pot that tree is in.
  2. Replace existing soil with triple mix soil.
  3. Remove pot from tree and place in ground. Ensure that soil level of rooted tree is at same level of ground or slightly higher.
  4. When filling around tree ball with triple mix ensure that it is compacted with your foot. If soil is not compacted the tree could lean slightly after it is watered.
  5. Mulch around tree ball to prevent from drying out quickly.
  6. Fertilize tree with a transplant fertilizer when you are done planting.

Fruit Trees

5 Gallon

#36324, #93528, #197642

Our high-quality fruit trees are selected strains of certified, virus free plants. Our trees are two
years old when they ship to our stores to ensure faster fruiting and offer a more established, well
branched tree. A well branched fruit tree helps most varieties produce some fruit by the second
year of planting. For best results plant two varieties of the same fruit to guarantee cross-pollination.
Choose from varieties of Apple, Pear and Plum. See in-store for our full assortment.
Cherry varieties are available in BC and Ontario Markets only. Excluding Sudbury and Sault St Marie.

Planting Fruit Trees

Lowe's Fruit trees are high quality trees. Selected strains of certified, virus free plants and most varieties will produce fruit by the second year. Lowes fruit trees are 2 years old.

Fruit trees grow in a wide range of soil types. Apple varieties prefer heavy soils, such as clay, however they are quite adaptable to a wide range of soil types. Pear and plums grow well on clay soils. Cherries and peaches generally prefer well-drained soils made up of either clay or sand. Peach varieties must be grown in a highly organic soil.

Planting instructions:

  • Dig a hole twice as large as the pot the tree was growing in.
  • Improve existing soil with organic material (composted cow manure).
  • Remove the plant from the container carefully and partly refill the planting hole.
  • Plant the tree slightly higher than growing in the container, care must be taken no to plant too deeply, the graft union should be above the final soil level.
  • Firm the soil gently and water thoroughly.
  • Support the tree with stakes.
  • With limitations on chemicals, consumers should spray with dormant oil early spring prior to any leafing. The dormant oil will kill any insects that overwinter on fruit tree.

Planting Fruit trees in Full Sun

For best results we suggest planting 2 varieties of the same fruit to guarantee cross-pollination. Either plant two together or if there are neighbouring apple trees with a close proximity one will be fine.
