Tree seedlings make a unique keepsake for your guests to commemorate your love for one another.
We can provide white spruce seedlings for your special day. White spruce was chosen as our wedding seedling because it is Manitoba's provincial tree and it can grow in a diversity of locations throughout Manitoba and Canada. White spruce grows in all soil types and it will grow in full sunlight or shade.
Please note that the tree seedlings will have a 5 inch root plug and are approximately 5 to 8 inches in height.
Seedlings to give out at the wedding (Options 1 to 3 below) are available for dates within April to mid-October. For seedlings given out in April / early-May, they should be planted in small pots with adequate drainage, i.e. hole in pot or a layer of gravel, until outdoor conditions are suitable for planting, usually a few weeks after the last frost. Tree seedlings should be watered regularly but do not need to be fertilized.
For winter weddings, which fall outside of the planting season, you can purchase trees planted this coming spring on behalf of your guests to commemorate your wedding. Please see Option 4 below for more details.
