November Tips

For a green lawn all winter, plant annual Ryegrass now.

Want an evergreen perennial that blooms in February? Plant Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis) now!

Fertilize Pansy beds with Osmocote or Greenlight 25-10-17 Plant Food.

Fertilize your Fescue lawn eight weeks after planting seed. Be sure to water.

Plant English Laurel, Aucuba, and Holly now. Remember to water deeply every two weeks so these evergreen shrubs do not dry out.

Plant Camellias, the jewels of the winter garden. Try Yuletide, Apple Blossom and Setsugekka for beautiful blooms.

Plant balled and burlapped trees and shrubs. Plant in a hole dug at least twice as wide as the rootball. Choose from Japanese Maples, Dogwoods, Hemlocks and Hollies.

Cut back faded perennials for the winter.

Bird feeders bring lots of color and activity to the winter garden. Most experts recommend black oil sunflowers for general feeding.
