In Shageluk, Alaska, USA

"=) We actually had fun in the snow. The soil is still soft, no hard frosts yet but we did have snow. 2 C right now. All the nursery's in Alaska told me that where we live, the best time to plant trees is in the spring. Most dealers stop selling trees in late July! We'll see how our tulips do in the spring in honor of ENO Tree Planting day!"
