What to do Now!

what to do nowThere are still things to do in the garden so don’t throw in the trowel just yet!

It’s time to fertilize landscape plants; rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas, boxwoods, etc. will benefit from an application. Acid loving plants – use Holly-tone; all others use Plant-tone. Read and follow package directions for rate of application.

Clean up perennial borders and ready them for their long winter’s nap.

Dahlias, gladiolas, elephant ears, cannas, and other non-hardy bulbs should be dug and stored for the winter. Remember to store in a frost-free location.

Keep up with fallen leaves. If you have a mulching lawn mower, allow the finely chopped up leaves to remain on the lawn for some nutrient recycling.

Buy and force Amaryllis for Christmas enjoyment.

It’s too late to fertilize the lawn this year. Sit tight; the next time to fertilize will be April 1, 2015.
