Deer and Rabbit Protection

Protect the bark of young shade trees, ornamental trees and shrubs this fall and winter from deer and rabbits. We recommend using trunk guards on your trees to keep deer from rubbing on the trunk. The white plastic trunk protectors are inexpensive, easy to install and reusable for several years, and will also protect tree bark from damage by mice, rabbits and winter sun. You can use tree wrap to keep rabbits from eating your tree as well. Make sure to protect newly planted shrubs and trees that are still tender to the rabbits and deer. Fence in the plants if possible. There are great spray repellants to use year round to keep the critters from snacking on your plants. This spring remember to get the systemic granular repellent into the garden as soon as your see leaves coming out and planting emerging from the ground!

DeWitt Tree Wrap protects trees from scorching, and from trimmer and mower damage. Tree Wrap is made of polypropylene fabric and easily conforms to fit any tree shape or bark texture. Tree Wrap slowly photodegrades to prevent girdling of the tree’s trunk.

 

Young trees are at risk of sun and animal-related trunk injury during the winter, so be sure to apply tree guards as part of your yearly process for preparing trees for winter.

It delivers a hot pepper concentrate through plant roots at the molecular level, making the plants inedible to animals. Because the active compound is protected inside the plant cells, it doesn’t washoff in the rain or degrade in sunlight. One treatment typically lasts the entire growing season.

November Chores

Happy Fall!

We are enjoying this beautiful fall weather! Is it really November? We have been busy doing our fall clean up and plant protection. We are still watering our plants a couple times a week. It is still a great time to plant trees! Stop in and see us for tree guards, deer and rabbit repellents and Wilt Stop!

Some of us are already looking forward to the holiday season. We will be getting our spruce tops, fresh cut christmas trees, wreaths and roping in! We will also have beautiful pre-made holiday planters!

Remember to:

Water~
Remember to keep watering your new shrubs and trees this fall until freeze.

Clean~
Trim off and throw away any foliage from your plants that might have suffered a disease or fungus this summer.

Mulch~
Once we have a week of freezing, use leaves, cocoa bean mulch, grass clippings or straw to help protect plants and improve your soil quality.

Leave It~
Coneflowers, Black-eyed Susans, Sunflowers and all other seed producing flower heads can be enjoyed by birds all winter. Fall and Winter is a great time for you and your birds to enjoy your perennial grasses.

Protect~
Use trunk guards and tree wrap to protect your tree trunks from deer, rabbits, sunscald and frost cracking. Use repellents to spray your shrubs and trees to keep animals from munching on them this fall and winter. Wilt Stop is a great product that stops winter kill, wind burn, sunscald, salt damage, and drying out.

Cut~
Fall is a great time to trim back spent perennials that are hiding slugs and snails, like hostas and daylilies.

Rake~
Rake up and throw away leaves under roses, fruit trees and plants susceptible to powdery mildew and other pests and diseases that persist through winter into spring.
