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:

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.
