DIY At home

We’ve entered the quieter winter months in our gardens. Grab your hat & gloves and take time to notice the beauty that only comes in winter—ice crystals on buds and persistent fruit, bark colors and textures, and creatures scouting around for winter food. Here’s a few tips to keep you engaged during the winter season:

Toxicodendron radicans,  Poison ivy
  • Check for bark injury by rabbits and deer. Shop for repellent or physical barriers.

  • Gently shake snow off of branches. Carefully prune out any broken branches.

  • Assess your existing plants and jot down any concerns. Email me to schedule a consult.

  • Winter is prime time for pruning fruit trees. Schedule your first pruning lesson of the season!

  • Replenish suet and seed feeders for our feathered friends.

  • Inventory, make a list, and order seeds. Add your seed-starting date to the calendar.

  • Find a gardening journal for recording the coming year's plans, tasks, and successes!
