To-do List for the month of November
Plant Spring Blooming Bulbs
November is a great time to plant spring flowering bulbs such as daffodils, tulips (in deer-protected areas), crocus, and allium. The best time to plant is when nighttime temperatures average between 40-50 degrees. Sprinkle some crocus bulbs along a garden path, or add groups of daffodils to a perennial bed for some color in the early spring. Giant allium make a great statement in a mixed border or at the back of a perennial bed. Bulbs can be planted in a specific pattern, or randomly for a more natural look!
Protect your Plants from Deer & Winter Damage
As the temperatures drop and leaves fall, deer will begin to browse some broadleaf and needled evergreens. The plants most likely to be affected by deer damage are Hemlock, Taxus (Yews), Rhododendron/Azaleas, Hollies, Arborvitae, and some Junipers. Now is the time to protect your plants! Apply deer spray to the bottom 6’ of foliage, or wrap susceptible plants in burlap or black netting/fencing up to 6’. The wraps can either be placed directly on top of the foliage, or attached to stakes to form a fence around the plants. Please ask up about our deer spraying program!
To protect against winter damage like cold temperatures, drying winds, and falling snow, here are our winterizing tips. Apply an anti-desiccant spray to newly planted broadleaf evergreens like Boxwoods, Hollies, Andromeda, Leucothoe, Rhododendrons and Azaleas. This will prevent the leaves from losing too much water during the winter, resulting in “winter burn”. Protect any shrubs that might be subject to falling snow or plowed snow – wrap in burlap, create a burlap “tent”, or tie inner branches together to prevent splitting and breaking.
Ready Pots for Winter Arrangements
Just because the growing season is coming to a close doesn’t mean your containers need to lay empty for the next 3 months – consider winter container arrangements! Our talented designers can create beautiful and long-lasted winter container arrangements using live plants, cut greens, real and artificial berries, pine cones, birch branches, and more! Whether you’d like something more holiday themed or something that simply says “winter”, please ask how we can design beautiful winter container arrangements for you this season.
