Time for warm colors, berried branches, bold flowers, & gatherings. Just a few to-dos now and your garden will be ready for fun, entertaining, & relaxation!
Check out our November Garden Guide for more tips and remember that trees, shrubs, and perennials can be planted 12 months out of the year! The only difference is the amount of water they need depending on temperatures and wind!
1. Flowers First!
Flowers take a little time to grow and bloom so…get those pretties planted early this month so they have time to look ravishing for holiday gatherings! Once they’re all planted, give them a good meal of Plant Tone. Here’s a fall/winter flower list of the best for the season.
2. Front Door First Impressions
Outside entry of your home speaks volumes to your guests. Add some interest like a blooming hanging basket, a pot full of flowers, something fragrant like rosemary nearby or a dried bouquet.
3. Freshen Up
It’s pleasant weather! Make a family day of working in your garden. Pull weeds, trim shrubs, rake beds, and clean up. Feed your plants with a good organic fertilizer such as Hasta Grow. Apply pre-emergent weed control to the lawn. Treat brown spots in lawns with peat moss and add mulch to beds to give your landscape a fresh polished look.
4. Plant Shrubs & Trees
Here in South Texas, you can plant most anything anytime of the year. Planting new cold-hardy shrubs and trees give them a good start with less time invested from you. Yes, they need water & care, just not as much as during warmer seasons. Plus, they grow roots for better success next spring. Always fertilize when you plant and follow our watering instructions.
