Wisconsin Gardener’s Tips for November

  • Water plantings, especially new ones, thoroughly before ground freezes.
  • Protect plants from rodents and rabbits with hardware cloth, or animal repellent spray such as Natures Mace (can be purchased at Heritage Hill Nursery).
  • Plants especially favored by rabbits include: Burning Bush, Japanese Maple, and Clethra.
  • Wrap young and thin bark trees to protect from sun scald and animal damage (rabbits love fruit trees) but remember to remove in spring.
  • As the weather turns colder, begin dormant pruning of ornamentals. If you’re unsure what, when or how to prune, stop at our nursery and ask for a pruning guide.

Wisconsin Gardener’s Tips for October

How to know when to water your plants in the fall

Take a walk through your planting beds and see if there are any open areas that you may want to add plants for the next season. Sales are currently going on at the nursery and fall is the perfect time for those late additions. With the cooler weather and shorter days, reduce watering of new plants to every other day for larger plants and every 3 days for perennials. Due to differences in ground type, be sure to double check before watering. You can do this by sticking your finger into the first few inches of the ground near the plant or by using a moisture meter. Remember if the ground feels moist don’t water.

Wisconsin Gardener’s Tips for September

WINTER IS COMING!

Start getting your plants ready for winter. Stop adding fertilizer to perennials, shrubs and trees. Keep your perennials deadheaded so that the energy goes back into the plant and not into seed production. The same is true with shrubs if they are the flowering type.

Wisconsin Gardener’s Tips for August

 

KEEP YOUR COOL!!!

No need to worry about your plants! If you are making sure they have plenty of moisture each week, they should be fine. If you have been watering and they still don’t look very happy, get some pictures and bring them into our garden center. Some plants look like they are dying, but they are in fact going dormant (like your lawn) when it gets too hot out. Be patient.
