Winter Tips

This time of year is a great time to prune. Trim limbs on shrubs or trees to lightly shape the overall look. Remove dead heads off of any perennials.

Fall/Winter Planting:
Once leaves fall off the trees, it is a great time to plant trees or shrubs. In the winter months, when plants are dormant, it is a great time to transplant plants.

Don’t forget plants and trees still need water in the winter, especially if we go a couple of weeks without any moisture. Make sure there is moisture in the ground if a freeze is on the forecast to help insulate your plants.

Start to get your vegetable gardens ready if you plan on planting cool season vegetables. Turn your garden over to get ready for planting in February for onions, garlic, potatoes, broccoli, radishes, etc.

After you plant your new annuals or perennials, make sure to put down a good application of mulch, which will help retain moisture throughout the winter.

Garden Planning:
Now is the time to be thinking of your flower beds for spring. You can plant annuals and perennials to provide beautiful color to flower beds and pots. Look through your existing flower beds to see what holes to fill in with plants or what needs to be replaced.
