Expert horticulturalist Tom Smarr
at the Garden Concierge
offers this good advice to all gardeners.
“I find that many gardeners tend to take a break or drop back from gardening programs and reading during the late autumn and early
winter. Possibly resting before putting the energy back into the excitement for another growing year. However, I think it is important
for gardeners not to get too lazy in putting their garden to bed. Cut back appropriate perennials, protect and cover up others, and evaluate
shurbs that might need some additional ties for snow load protection. I also will stake newly planted trees to protect from being pulled over by winter snow.”
Great advice. Thanks Tom!
