Garden
 
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,
