Place mulch over roots of roses, azaleas, rhododendrons, and berries to protect them from freezing over the winter.

To suppress future pest problems, clean up annual flower beds by removing diseased plant materials. Mulch them with manure or garden compost to feed the soil and suppress weeds.

In 1965, Walt Underwood and his mother Violet, came out to Oregon from the Midwest to begin the company known as Underwood Landscaping.
In the early 1970’s, as the company was growing and their reputation for quality landscaping plants became known, they decided to also open a garden nursery.
In 1979, the name of the business was changed to U&D Trucking and Nursery Inc.
Then in 1988, Walt began the complex process of developing his top quality soil mixes, which he offered for sale to the public in 1990.
2015 marked the Golden 50th Anniversary for U & D Trucking and Nursery Inc., where we always offer a wide variety of products and plants for every landscaping and gardening need.
