General Landscaping
  • It’s fall cleanup time!!!
  • Add mulch to the base of trees & shrubs to prevent moisture evaporation
  • After a hard frost wrap your tree trunks to prevent winter sun scald damage (we have wrap for you in the gift shop)
  • Set up a schedule to winter water your trees. Landscape plantings will need to be watered twice a month when temperatures are above 40 degrees throughout the winter. Please keep in mind that snow does not count as watering unless we have a very heavy spring snow
Shrubs, Perennials & Bulbs
  • Start dreaming of riots of color in the spring by planting spring blooming bulbs: tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocus, and giant alliums!
  • Cut back perennial flowers – if the foliage is disease free, add the cuttings to your compost pile
  • Dig up tender dahlias and gladiolas and store for next year
  • Apply mulch around your roses to protect them through the winter months
Veggies, Fruit & Herbs
  • Continue to enjoy the fruits of your labor while the weather holds
  • Clean veggie beds and apply a moderate (1″ – 3″) layer of compost
  • Extend your season by adding a cold frame around your cool season crops
  • Rough till your annual beds and add a layer of compost
  • Toss out spent summer annual plantings
  • Clean pottery and move to storage
