Mid-Winter Seasonal Tip
- Keep plants free of snow, Prune ornamental Trees
- During Winter the major chore is still that of protecting plants. Check and repair protective covering frequently and after each snowstorm. Gently shake or broom the snow from branches; when clearing walks and driveways take care not to shovel snow onto bordering plants. Always use materials which are non toxic to plants for melting ice near lawns and gardens. After severe storms, cut broken branches from shrubs and trees. On mild days, finish pruning trees and shrubs that flowered late Summer and Fall.
