Need something to do before and after the big Turkey day?
If you have the time, below are important to keep your yard and garden looking great all year.
• Pansies and other winter color plants. Plant in raised beds of well-prepared, highly organic soil.
• Tulips and Dutch hyacinths must have 45 days in the fridge before you plant them outdoors by the end of the year. This is just about your last call to get that done. Daffodils and grape hyacinths can be planted at any time.
• Trees and shrubs can still be planted now. Plant them as soon as possible after you get them home. Don’t leave them sitting out in the open during the cold weather ahead.
• Mow lawn to remove fallen tree leaves brought down by last week’s really hard freeze and strong winds. DON’T FORGET TO ASK ABOUT OUR FALL LEAF CLEAN UP!
• Erratic growth from shrubs
• Ryegrass and fescue (cool-season grasses) with high-nitrogen or all-nitrogen lawn food. Water immediately after feeding.
• Pansies, pinks and other cool-season annuals with high-nitrogen, water-soluble plant food to keep them growing vigorously.
• Houseplants monthly with high-nitrogen, water-soluble plant food at half the recommended rate.
From our family to yours, we are wishing all a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are so very thankful for you.
