Sapphire Clematis

If you like clematis, this is one you should try.  It is a unique clematis that has long lasting dark purple blooms that fade to deep blue with dark purple to black anthers. On top of that, it is a continuous bloomer, blooming from June through September. It can be trained as a climber, grown as a shrubby ground cover with no support, or container-grown to a height of 4′. It also can be grown in partial shade. Some gardeners claim it blooms wave after waves, and love it as a ground cover

 

 

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.
