- Fall is for planting! Many trees and shrubs do best going
in at this time of the year.
- And don’t forget
the bulbs-nothing is more welcome after winter than the first bright color of crocus, daffodils, and tulips.
- Water trees and shrubs which have been thoroughly mulched before the first frost.
- But don’t over water! Plants and shrubs should
be expected to look a little brown in September and October.
- Does your soil need improving before you plant fall bulbs? Shredded oak leaves from healthy trees can be worked in
to add organic material to enrich your soil.
- Cut the grass a bit shorter just before winter to prevent its matting under snow.
- Take care to sufficiently water your lawn as it prepares for its dormancy.
- Fall feeding delivers nutrients to the root system-let
us show you which of your trees would benefit from this.
- Fertilize your lawn around Thanksgiving to promote strong root growth during winter
- Around the same time, apply an anti-dessicant to your broad-leaved evergreens such
as boxwood and holly to prevent winter burn.
