Tips for Winter/Spring Plants and Trees

TREES

  1. Fertilize your trees during the winter months.
  2. Never plant tree below grade, always level or just above grade with root ball.
  3. Try not to prune newly planted to two years old, as all leaves and branches play a vital role in development of young trees.

PLANTS

  1. Over watering plants can led to diseases, like root rot and fungus and also lead to Insect infestation.
  2. For healthy plants allow air circulation around plants to prevent disease.
  3. In colder months place mulch around root ball to prevent freezing of desired plants.
  4. Regularly prune your plants to stop them from getting leggy.
