Planting Season: SpringTime-Tempature for planting: Between May and mid June. (In my neck of the woods, it may be any time from early May to late June. but between May and early June you are going to get the nicest weather)Plant Hardiness: Most trees and shrubs will survive in TN, however many that don't survive are exposed to freeze and wind and snow.Hardiness: Evergreen, can be semi-hardy (survive through winter) to semi-cold hardiness (survive through the Winter. (Species* with the following cold hardiness ratings (USDA Guide)Dwarf Almond 0-10
Forked Cane 1-25
Forked Sweetgum 3-32
Red Osier Dogwood 0-30
Willow 0-30 (I know I know Willow is never going to survive in my area of Tennessee, but I know that for sure because we have had more then our share of winter storms and I see trees that have frozen to the ground..)Soil Type: Well drained.Moisture: Moisture should be good to good.Buttons are you wanting to plant?Inseasons/Weeks (Nymphoides* what are your other choices?Redbud Fothergilla and others.)Syringa 8-14Flowering Forests Planting*: Typically May and June.Site Size: I would do at least one with 15-25′ x 15-25′ and try to make as big of a garden as you can.Size: You want a garden in one area because it is nice to have somewhere to escape. (not a part of your home or anything)Paths (Dirt): Paths need a drainage system installed in the ground. In case you were wondering. do not use your sidewalk. They just don't hold water and will clog. (I am not saying that if you want to use your sidewalk that you don't. I just want to let you know that it is something to be aware of when you are planting.)Soil: 1:3 soil mixture (1 part soil, 3 parts sand) &, compost for any raised beds. Soil will depend on what the area has been, but soil will not be a problem.Water:Watering of gardens: If the trees or shrubs have been established you should have no problem. If you are planting young trees or shrubs you will want to water them regularly.Buttons are you wanting to plant?

The actual choices of plants will vary.
Second year plants:If you are planting the same plants you may be thinking that they have grown well in the first season and there is no reason to plant them again. But this is where experience will show that some plants are not suited to transplanting (evergreen, maples, and white dogwood for example). Secondly some trees and shrubs you will want to wait and see if they get established and if they do, transplant them again. Most of the plants you need for your garden can be planted again when they are 2 years old. However, if you have a species that gets top work, like oaks, maples, white dogwood, willows, and many others, it may be good to wait until they are 3 or 4 years old for top work. How soon do you want your tree or shrub?This will all depend on a number of factors:What kind of trees or shrubs do you want? What kind of ground do you have?What is the climate of your location?What amount of sun do you have? Do you want partial shade?Or full sun?Do you want a front yard that gets full sun or a rear yard that gets full sun?What space do you have?Do you want to plant more than one? Where in your yard are you going to plant?
**On the day of planting, you should be out of the elements as much as possible**
Take a good look at your soil, and see how far away you can get your shovel. Get out there and take a good look at it, find any blocks of soil that you may need to dig up and do it. Dig out any holes larger than 8"X8" or 8"X12".
Have your plant selected and put it in the hole. Remove any rock or roots that are near the surface. if the soil is rock free, then it may be fine not to remove any roots or stones. If you see any rocks or stones, dig them out. When you are putting the plants in the hole make sure that it does not touch any other plant, since it will share roots. (If you are doing two or more plants, then make sure that you don't plant a plant that will shade one of your plants)
Staking: If your plants are going to have any weak spots, then you want to stake them.I stake my plants that are in a location where wind can catch them and hold them in place. Stakes help in the first year when your plant is young, and the wind can knock them over.
Care: If you have any trees that are going to be in a part of the yard that is not receiving direct sun or full sun, then you will want to plant in the shade. If you are planting
