QUICK TIPS FOR FALL GARDENING:
FALL LAWN CARE:
Time to feed your cool season lawns, apply winterizer now and again in early-mid December. You can also apply lime and gypsum at this time.
October 15-January 15 is the best time for planting spring blooming bulbs.
Amaryllis, paperwhites, and 'pre-cooled' hyacinth bulbs are avaiable for winter forcing.
Stop by soon while selection is still good!
PROTECTING YOUR EVERGREENS AND HOLIDAY GREENS:
Depending on what weather predictor you use, The Farmer's Almanac, Woolly Worms or Persimmon Seeds, if you want to protect your broad-leafed evergreens through winter, be sure you keep them well watered until the ground starts to freeze. Spraying the leaves/needles with 'Wilt Stop' it will help to seal in the moisture and reduce winter burn and scorch.
It is also a good idea to spray your holiday wreaths, roping and trees with 'Wilt Stop' to help them last through the season.
FALL IS GREAT FOR PLANTING:
Now is a great time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials and garlic! Most can be planted until the ground freezes.
