Garden Tips - January

Brush snow from ornamental trees and evergreens as soon as possible after a storm. Use a broom in an upward, sweeping motion. Serious damage may be caused by heavy snow or ice accumulating on the branches.

Remember to do your second application of WiltPruf around this time when the temperature is above 40ᵒF and let it dry for 24 hours. This will help to protect your valuable plants from our harsh New England Winters.

If you have some time this winter, paint the handles of your garden tools red or orange. This will preserve the wood and make the tools easier to locate next summer when you lay them down in the garden or lawn.
