• Cut back any faded perennials for the winter and prune your trees so that broken limbs don’t damage your property during snow and ice storms.
     
  • To give shrubs and trees the best opportunity for growth next spring, plant or transplant them now, while they’re dormant.
     
  • Plant late spring blooming bulbs before ground freezes.
     
  • Continue to water your plant material, if there was no significant rainfall, especially newly installed landscapes. Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean you don’t need to water.
     
  • Replenish or replace mulch around trees, shrubs & in bed areas for cold weather protection & to reduce heaving.
     
  • Mound Roses with 10” to 12” of extra dirt for protection. After ground freezes, mulch Roses that have been mounded with leaf mulch, seasoned wood chips, hay or straw.
     
  • Bring houseplants & tropicals indoors, chances are they will not survive outside during winter.
     
  • Around Thanksgiving, it’s time for another application of lawn winter fertilizer.
     
  • Last but not least, remember to keep plenty of birdseed in stock & make fresh water available for our beautiful birds.
