OUR 15th ANNUAL TREE SALE

2021

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago.  The second best time is now!

We’re back in business and our 2021 tree sale is now underway!  This year, Westport in Bloom is offering over thirty varieties of top-quality shade trees, flowering trees and fruit trees, many of them native and all of them bred to thrive in our local climate.  CHECK THEM OUT BELOW!

Many of our trees are 8 feet tall, or more – but because most come with their roots bagged in plastic, not in heavy pots of soil, they’re light to carry and easy to plant.   More often than not, the trees we receive are significantly taller than indicated in our product listing.  And the root mass of a bare-root tree can be up to 200% larger than the roots of a balled-and-burlapped or container tree!

For 2021, we have lots of fruit trees, more of our ever-popular maples and oaks and crabapples, along with a number of flowering shrubs, berry bushes and vines, and a few container-grown plants.  Once again this year we are placing particular emphasis on trees that are native and/or attractive to pollinators – the bees, birds and insects on which our world depends for survival. Look for the trees marked BLOOMS CHOICE!

The trees we supply are grown in a prize-winning commercial nursery, where they are shaped and root-pruned while they are young.  In the spring, they are trucked to Westport, where we pack the roots in bags with the proper amount of moisture, ready for pickup. Along with your tree, you will receive a package of mycorrhizae (an all-natural totally organic plant starter that protects, strengthens and enhances plant health and root development) and planting instructions.

Virtually all of our prices are between $40 and $100 – and you pay no tax.  Even more important, every penny we earn goes into helping keep our village beautiful: providing and maintaining hanging baskets, memorial planters and gardens around the village – including brand-new pollinator gardens at the Spring this past year, with plans for more in 2021 – and brightening our streets with colourful banners and holiday decorations.  At the same time, we consider the sale a public service that gives folks a low-cost way to improve the value of their own property, maintain the village’s traditional tree canopy and protect the environment.  A tree is also a great way to celebrate a wedding, welcome a new baby or remember someone special.  In fact, the promise of a tree makes a super gift for any occasion, all wrapped up in dreams of springtime.

We start taking orders in late November, since our supplier’s most popular varieties – particularly fruit trees – tend to sell out early.  The trees will be ready for pickup at Soho’s Greenhouse on May 15, just in time for spring planting.

If any of the varieties you are looking for are listed as Sold Out, please contact westportinbloom@gmail.com.  We will continue to try to re-stock, and will let you know if they become available.

So start dreaming of spring – and get your order in early!
