November Gardening Tips

Posted: November 01, 2016

Tip #1
Start wrapping your evergreens such as Arborvitae and Juniper for the winter.

Solution #1
Use  strips of cotton or old nylon stockings to prevent damage from the snow load. Do not use tree wraps, as they do not protect the plant and can cause damage if left on too long.

Tip #2
Give special attention to broad leaf evergreens such as Rhododendrons.

Solution #2
Use a screen of burlap to cut winter winds and shade the plants from the drying winter sun. Or circle the plants with a cylinder of hard wire cloth several feet tall and sunk into the ground, and fill with straw or evergreen branches to protect the plants.
