Winter Is Coming...

Winter Is Coming...

Trees & Shrubs 
Help avoid winter burn with these preventative measures:
• Water your Evergreens throughout the fall, giving plants much-needed access to moisture heading into the winter.
• Help prevent moisture loss in foliage by spraying an anti-transpirant spray (such as WiltPruf) on your Broadleaf Evergreens (rhododendron, holly, euonymus, and boxwood).

• Water your perennials in the fall, but don’t overdo it—they need less moisture as they shut down for the winter. 
• Cut back most of your perennials, avoiding those that give winter interest, such as ornamental grasses.
• Mulch around the root area of most perennials to a depth of at least 2 inches.

Shrub Roses 
• Water Shrub Roses until the first hard frost. 
• Wait until the spring to prune or cut back Shrub Roses. 
• Mulch around the base of the plants to a depth of 2 to 4 inches, extending past the plant’s width.
