Winter Plant Needs
As we progress through the late Fall and Winter months, it is important to remember that the cold temperatures and winds have an adverse effect on plants, due to the drying conditions these forces create. It is imperative to monitor soil moistures through the Winter to help these young planting continue to establish. This can be achieved by occasionally drenching the ground surrounding plant material to provide a moisture source for the plant in the winter months. This is true for both evergreen and deciduous plant material.
Winter is a great time of the year for dormant season pruning. Pruning ornamental trees and shrubs during dormant season is ideal due to inactive growth and dropping temperatures. Dormant pruning helps trees and shrubs endure damage from severe winter weather, paving the way for healthy growth in the spring. When it comes to the health of your trees, the best time to consider pruning is late fall to early spring. Contact us today for a free evaluation of your ornamental trees and shrubs.
