EVEN MORE Fall Gardening Tips


PROTECT TREES FROM DEER

Protect younger trees (3-inch trunk diameter or smaller) from deer damage (bucks rubbing) with trunk protectors. Protect deer browse susceptible plants with DeerScram / Liquid Fence / Repels All, etc. Also, consider nylon netting coverage.

HOW TO CARE FOR SUMMER BULBS

Dig, clean, and store summer bulbs (cannas, tuberous begonias, gladiolas, caladiums, etc.) in a cool dark place for replanting next year. Let the early light frost kill the tops, then dig and store away.

DON’T FORGET YOUR EVERGREENS.

Spray evergreens (as needed) with WiltStop for greater winter protection. Do this later in the fall. You can also spray rose canes for added winter protection. 

WHEN SHOULD YOU PROTECT YOUR ROSES?

Late in the year, you can protect your roses after that plant has gone dormant and the soil is close to frozen. Reduce long branches as needed, but save severe pruning for next spring.

HOW TO HELP YOUR WINGED FRIENDS

Feed the birds and clean your feeders. Make sure your birds have a source of water over the winter, as well as landscaping for the birds, including evergreens, plants with seeds or berries, and thicker growing shrubs.
