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.
