Our Texas winter is officially in full swing!
Water deeply in early morning, or evening, and infrequently...as needed. With the rain chances increasing and less evaporation, you won't need to as often.
Contine to fertilize your planters this month 2x/month, at 1/2 strength. I use Garrett Juice Plus. Pansies and violas are my little vampires and love blood meal.
It is time to cut ornamental grasses. I shoot for the end of January or early February.
It is also a great time to prune trees, especially oak trees to avoid oak wilt. Only prune as necessary.
It's time to make your landscape dreams come true! It's a great time to plan and still plant trees and shrubs! Call, text, or email to schedule your consultation today. Landscape Consultations - $50. Planter Consultations - No Charge

What "To Do" in the Garden this Month:
I'm always amazed at how much there is to do in the garden, and so many times I feel a bit
overwhelmed with what I want to do versus what I can do. So, I make a list.
Lists are great; I absolutely love them!
But, always remember that God ordains our steps and His way will always be best.
I love to use the Dirt Doctor's "What to Do" as a guide.
Here is a link to the calendar pages:
Another great resource is Robert "Skip" Richter's book,
