How To Winterize Your Garden For A Flourishing Spring Bloom

Nov 3, 2016 | Lawn & Garden, Winter Tips

With pine needles raining down from the trees and fresh snow on the mountains it’s time to start getting our gardens ready for winter. There are a number of things we can do now to make our gardens thrive in the spring.

    • Rake up fallen leaves and pine needles on the lawn and garden. They can become a soggy suffocating mess under the snow and lead to disease. We have two styles of rakes on sale this October to help you out.
    • Cut back perennials to the ground and mulch with a rich compost. Our Redi-Gro organic compost works well and is only $4.99
    • With the leaves off of trees and shrubs, it’s the perfect time to prune most plants (Lilac should be pruned after bloom in spring). Remove any dead or unhealthy branches and shape as needed. A good pair of loppers makes the task easier.
    • Feed your lawn with a “Winterizer” lawn fertilizer and continue to water till there is snow.
    • Tie up small trees and shrubs to prevent damage from heavy snow. We offer green and brown tree tape.
    • Now is the time to plant spring-flowering bulbs. Tulips and Daffodils planted now will greet you early next spring.
  • Now is also the time to plant wildflower seeds. We offer a Sierra Nevada wildflower mix that has a variety of annual and perennial flowers.
