If you’re a landscaper who has ever purchased trees from Ruppert Nurseries, you may have procured a specimen grown in Bloom! The wholesale grower grows approximately 150 varieties of shade, ornamental and evergreen trees for outplanting, including prominent sites like the National Mall, the White House, the National Zoo and Flight 93 Memorial.

“Bloom is a nutrient rich product that helps amend our soils before we plant our fields.  When we are ready to plant our fields, we topdress with Bloom, till, plant a temporary cover crop and follow with our trees.  Bloom helps with the soil fertility and to retain soil moisture, which reduces our watering demands,” said Nick Graves, Farm Operations Manager for the Laytonsville, MD company.
