Tom’s Winter Checklist for Your Garden

To get your 2014 garden ready here is our list of “must do”s” for this month (and yes, do these DURING winter)!

1. Scan seed catalogs (for flowers and veggies).
2. Prune decidous trees (see our reasons below).
3. Leave food and water out for hungry birds.
4. Plant trees, shrubs and perennials.
5. Layer your vegetable garden with compost.

*You want to prune trees in cooler temperatures because in the warmer months, sap rises to the tops of the branches to deliver nutrition and trimming/pruning at this point will result in cutting off some of the trees” food supply.

Questions, concerns or comments? Leave them here and we”ll be happy to respond.
